How did foreign policy change under Nixon, and how did his approach compare to Johnson’s approach towards the Vietnam conflict?
Foreign policy motivations did not change between the presidencies, but their strategies towards the Vietnam conflicts were different. Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon both realized that negotiation was the only way out of the Vietnam War, and both men had to deal with growing domestic opposition to the conflict. Both of their presidencies were badly hobbled by the Vietnam War. Their approach to the actual fighting of the war was different, however.
