The Roosevelt Corollary was an addition to the Monroe Doctrine by President Theodore Roosevelt.
What was it?
The Roosevelt Corollary (1904) gave the United States the power they did not have. The Monroe Doctrine was written to keep Europe out of the US. The Corollary took the doctrine to the next level by giving the U.S. police power to interfere with the western hemisphere when needed. By saying that, any Latin American nation engaging "chronic wrongdoing" (large debts or civil unrest), could be stopped by the United States police. It also stated that Europe had to continue to stay across the atlantic.
