Theodore Roosevelt's Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine (1905)

Theodore Roosevelt's Corollary to the Monroe Doctrine (1905)

The Roosevelt Corollary was an addition to the Monroe Doctrine articulated by President Theodore Roosevelt in his State of the Union address in 1904 after the Venezuela Crisis of 1902–03. The corollary states that the United States will intervene in conflicts between European countries and Latin American countries to enforce legitimate claims of the European powers, rather than having the Europeans press their claims directly.
