The only major foreign policy issue that is associated with Franklin Roosevelt that does not have to do with WWI is the "Good Neighbor Policy."  This was a new policy with respect to the countries of Latin America.  The US had been dominating many of these countries for decades.  It had essentially occupied countries like Nicaragua, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic to try to get those countries to do what the US wanted.  Roosevelt's Good Neighbor Policy was a departure from this.  FDR's policy was one of non-intervention and non-interference in the affairs of these countries.
