Haiti connects to William Taft’s dollar diplomacy because the U.S Government wanted Haiti. As the United States navy started to rise, Haiti’s strengths was what interested U.S defense officials the most because they feared instability might result in the rule of Haiti. President Andrew Johnson thought of taking over islands of Hispaniola, which was made up of Haiti and Dominican Republic, to stabilize U.S opposing and economic stake in the West Indies. In 1889-1891 secretary of state, James Blaine, failed to seek a lease of Mole-Saint Nicolas. In 1910 President William Taft let Haiti have a big amount of money, thinking that Haiti could possibly pay off its debt. The effort they took showed that it was useless because the crime of the debt created internal instability of the country.
