Sent troops to occupy Haiti (1915) and the Dominican Republic (1916), and authorized interventions in Cuba, Panama and Honduras, despite having criticized his predecessors’ foreign policies as being too imperialistic.

His Secretary of the Interior, Lucius Q. C. Lamar, caused railroads to forfeit about 81 million acres of land for failing to extend their rail lines according to agreements with the government.

William McKinley
During his presidency, the Sixteenth Amendment was passed, allowing Congress to levy an income tax without apportioning it among the states on the basis of population, thus overruling the Supreme Court decision in Pollock v.

William Howard Taft
His Secretary of State Frank B. Kellogg participated in writing the Kellogg-Briand Pact (ratified in 1929), which provided the founding principle for international law after World War II.
