How can one account for this dramatic change in American foreign policy? What pressures and groups led the nation in this imperialistic direction?

The US was keen to expand its global influence in territories previously colonised by Spain. The US government had an expansionist agenda which made it annex the Philippines, Hawaii, Guam and Cuba for strategic reasons. American citizens and Filipino revolutionary fighters led by Emilio Aguinaldo were opposed to the annexation, but they did not succeed.
