noun

A misunderstanding or disagreement attended by ill feeling, perplexity, or strife.

In 1807, the US government implemented the Embargo Act. This decree, which closed American ports to foreign trade and prevented US ships from leaving those ports, was extremely unpopular because it hurt America more than it did Britain or France. Two years later, Jefferson retired and left the foreign policy imbroglio to the new president, James Madison.
