Well, I used Dollar Diplomacy to invest in countries and negotiate from business standards rather than uses the silent threat of military forces to keep other nations under control. This method puts the United States of America forward because we invested in other countries rather than intervening in their affairs
How would you say your policies differ from Roosevelt’s?
My policies helped the nation because I gained access to new resources in other countries located in Latin America and East Asia. For instance, in Nicaragua, we lost money but got paid back with access to their railroad systems and their national bank.
How would you say your policies helped or hurt the nation?
The reason i did not get re-elected is due to Theodore Roosevelt running again. Roosevelt created a third party to oppose me, called the Bull Moose Party. By doing this, he split the vote between the two of us and allowed Woodrow Wilson to win.
Why weren’t you re-elected for a second term?
I disagree with this statement. Roosevelt knew full well that his two terms were up, and tried to stop me from being president again at any cost. Roosevelt didn’t control me in any way, demonstrated by our difference in policies. He had no influence over my decisions.
Some call you Roosevelts puppet. Why do you think this is?
Ah well that is an interesting answer. My most well known story is the time I got stuck in my bathtub and had to be lifted out by a crane.
