Similarly, it is asked, why did America stay neutral at the beginning of ww1?
When war broke out in Europe in 1914 President Wilson declared that the United States would follow a strict policy of neutrality. This was a product of a longstanding idea at the heart of American foreign policy that the United States would not entangle itself with alliances with other nations.
Subsequently, question is, why did the US end its neutrality? The United States had many reasons to abandon its neutrality, and choose to go into the war on the side of the allies. It would be hard for a country to remain neutral and help out other countries; for example, France wanted America to help out their government by giving them a loan.
Also know, what president declared the United States to be neutral when war broke out in Europe?
President Woodrow Wilson
Why was it so difficult for President Wilson to maintain American neutrality during the Great War?
US President Woodrow Wilson sought to maintain US neutrality but was ultimately unable to keep the United States out of the war, largely because of escalating German aggression. On May 7, 1915, the Germans sunk the British ocean liner RMS Lusitania, which had over a hundred Americans on board.
