FDR Justifying his Loaning Weapons Activity
Roosevelt was the commander-in-chief during US entrance to World War 2. He indirectly supported their allies: the British, during a fight. He justified his leasing program of American-made armaments. The program was meant to help military operations and collated with Britain and the Soviet Union (Sweeney, 2017). This coalition led to the victory of the Nazis. He insisted that some vital countries needed to be supported to aid in the British Victory. This plan lends Roosevelt the power to justify his actions. He hoped that he could be paid after the wars by supporting the British with firearms and war materials. It made his claims crucial and reliable
