annexing Hawaii will make America the greatest country in the world
President Cleveland objected from using troops to overthrow the queen. P Cleveland sent a person from congress to investigate the situation. Found out Stevens was in the wrong for calling in the troops. In the end the Queen offered amnesty.

But the anti-imperialists opposed annexation.
