During the 1920′s and 1930s, America had chosen an isolationist government. We were still paying the costs for previous wars and didn’t have time nor the money to get involved with another one. If they kept a distance from the works then they’d be okay! They were still trying to get better from the great depression and trying to make America better! This led to the involvement of ww2 however because even though we tried to stay out, our allies (Britain) was running out of supply and weapons. Of course America helped and it showed they were helping in the war.
