Due to the stress of the Venezuela blockade on the American people and the interpretation of how the Monroe Doctrine should be enforced; Roosevelt knew he had to make changes to keep the American public happy and safe in foreign policy. With the German threat of moving into the Caribbean Roosevelt knew he had to amend the doctrine but he also knew that the American people as a whole would be uncomfortable with the new role of peacekeeper (Thompson, 2015). The Roosevelt Corollary would be a blueprint for the United States foreign policy and the policy to keep America safe and allow her to grow to become a superpower not to be reckoned with. The United States rise to being a superpower was a slow and arduous climb, that was given a boost by World War I. The rise to being a superpower started with Woodrow Wilson who believed that it was the duty of the United States to bring democracy to the world (Tierney,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
