Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The US joined United Nations during first world war.President Woodrow Wilson went before a joint session of Congress to request a declaration of war against Germany. Wilson cited Germany’s violation of its pledge to suspend unrestricted submarine warfare in the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, as well as its attempts to entice Mexico into an alliance against the United States, as his reasons for declaring war.

.The Treaty of Versailles was the treaty that set up the League of Nations and not agreeing to it meant not being part of the League of Nations. The next reason that America did not want to get involved in European affairs is because they did not want to risk more Americans dying in a war, as they had in World War I.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

WHY USA JOINED GREAT WAR: In 1915, several months after Germany started to use submarines in the war, one of Germany's submarines sunk the British liner Lusitania, killing 128 Americans. Americans demanded war but President Wilson stood strong on his stance against war.When Germany sunk another British liner, the Arabic, in 1915, Berlin agreed to not sink unarmed passenger ships without warning. Germany continued to sink innocent ships as apparent when one of its submarines sank a French passenger steamer, the Sussex. President Wilson informed the Germans that unless they renounced the inhuman practice of sinking merchant ships without warning, he would break diplomatic relations, leading to war. Germany agreed to Wilson's ultimatum, but attached additions to their Sussex pledge: the United States would have to persuade the Allies to modify what Berlin regarded as their illegal blockade. Wilson accepted the Germany pledge, without accepting the "string" of additions. But they kept on doing it. Another reason is the Zimmerman Telegram a note from Germany to Mexico but was intercepted by the Brits and sent to the Americans. The telegram promised Mexico to reclaim its whole southwest but have to rage war in the US home-front so Germans won't have to worry that America have to intervene in Europe . Nationalism, Imperialism, Militarism and secret alliances were another factor.
