Arguments for US imperialism in the late 1800s are best explained by the statement "The United States wanted to assume its place as a world power." As the American economy boomed, the US looked to expand into international business and start trading on a global scale. One example is trade with China: putting US Navy bases in Hawaii and the Philippines was seen as a way to protect their trade relationship with China, as they were in a strategic location geographically.
