We should not get involved with affairs with the French!
The constitution says "Don't get involved in national affairs!"
I'm sorry, but there is no way that America can help French with the war.
You are disgusting! We helped you! We deserve your help!
The French helped us! We should have helped them!
WE MADE A TREATY WITH THE FRENCH!
Our country is too new! This war will destroy our government!
That treaty was with KING LUIS! It no longer exists!
The French were in the middle of their own revolution. It was highly debated whether we should assist them in their struggles or stay neutral.
The French have wrecked our ship again!
George Washington decided to stay neutral and not get involved with any foreign affairs.
We love you!
...I may have committed many errors...
Don't leave us!
Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson had very different ideas of how America should be involved in the French Revolution. This caused some division among the cabinet.
Because the French were at a war with England, many of the American's supplies were stolen from ships. As a result, George Washington introduced Jay's Treaty.
Washington MUST do somehting about this!
I propose Jay's Treaty to pay back for the lost ships.
Finally George Washington decided not to run for a third term in order to set an example for future presidents. He wrote his Farewell Address in order to explain to his people why he was not running again.
