The Monroe Doctrine allowed the president to extend his diplomatic power by specifying that he can provide for defense against other nations. Prior to this document’s establishment, the Neutrality Proclamation set the skeleton of the President’s diplomatic powers as independent from Congress as well as for the greater good of the nation. Although the Monroe Doctrine (1823) asserted these concepts, it also filled in this skeleton’s gaps by warning the Old World to sustain from interfering with North America. Any breach of the doctrine would be received as an “act of aggression,” and thus unfriendly force would ensue.
By purposefully not declaring neutrality from Europe, but rather declaring defense against Europe, Monroe solidified Washington’s trailblazing precedence of executive authority and even widened it to apply to brave defense against foreign nations.
