Hoping to Weaken the Influence of the United States

Preparations are already being made by certain South American countries to form a coalition against the United States at the coming conference at Rio de Janeiro. Argentine is said to be the head of the movement and will have the support of Colombia and Venezuela at least. … The movement is based on jealousy growing out of the influence of the United States and hostility to [the president's amended policy]. It is alleged that this movement is fomented by European Powers in the hope of weakening the United States' influence and induce a revolt against [the president's] interpretation of the American Doctrine and particularly to prevent the formation of a Pan-American alliance.
