An American military buildup would also enhance the nation’s status internationally and make it easier for Wilson to speak from a position of power in his dealings with the Germans over the submarine issue. His reversal on this issue, however, did not receive overwhelming support from Democrats in the House of Representatives. Kitchin, by this time the Democratic majority leader, particularly opposed it.
