They were also concerned with the influence of a growing American nation. America began to exert a great deal of economic and political pressure on the Kingdom of Hawaii. In an effort to balance the amount of influence exerted by American interests, Alexander began a campaign to limit Hawaiis dependence on American trade and commerce.

He sought deals with the British and other European governments.
