We shouldn't get involved with the war at all, our military is too weak.
A war between Britain and France had broken out in Europe.
Washington, the current president at the time, was advised by other political figures on who's side to take. On one side, the US owed France for helping out in the Revolutionary war; on the other, Britain was one of America's most important trading partners.
Hamilton convinced Washington that involvement in European Conflict would result in nothing but harm for the US. After that, Washington adopted the Proclamation of Neutrality, which led in the US being unbiased in any foreign affairs and minimized any unnecessary political involvement. He included this policy in the Farewell adress.
