A. He was a strong believer in Manifest Destiny./President John Tyler, concluding that Texas must not become a satellite of Great Britain, proposed annexation. [ After some sparring, Houston consented to the negotiation of a treaty of annexation, which was rejected by the United States Senate in June 1844. Annexation then became an issue in the presidential election of 1844; James K. Polk, who favored annexation, was elected. Tyler, feeling the need of haste if British designs were to be circumvented, suggested that annexation be accomplished by a joint resolution offering Texas statehood on certain conditions, the acceptance of which by Texas would complete the merger. The United States Congress passed the annexation resolution on February 28, 1845, and Andrew Jackson Donelsonqv proceeded to Texas to urge acceptance of the offer. ] Auto answered|Score .9|Controler|Points 3928|User:
