Which of the following actions did James Madison take with the Congress when he became president? Select one: a. Pass the Embargo Act of 1807 b. Only allow the United States to trade with France and Britain c. Only allow the United States to trade with France d. Repeal the Embargo Act of 1807
"a. Pass the Embargo Act of 1807" would be the best option from the list, since he had been pushing for an embargo for quite some time. His reasoning was that it would help domestic production.
