Which statement about the results of the Spanish-American War is true? A. The United States became an imperialist nation. B. The people of the Philippines embraced American rule. C. President McKinley was defeated in his bid for reelection. D. The Spanish empire emerged stronger than ever.
A. The United States became an imperialist nation. President McKinley was reelected, he was just assassinated very early on in his second term. The war ended in the favor of the US, so the Spanish empire didn't emerge stronger than ever. The Philippines didn't embrace American rule and eventually there was the Philippine-American War. So B, C, and D are incorrect. As well, US policies in the Philippines and Puerto Rico did resemble Imperials, so A is the correct answer.
The statement about the results of the Spanish American war that is true is A) The United States became an imperialist nation.
