He didn't. The vikings sailed there almost 500 years earlier.
He did not plan on finding land he was trying to reach the indies/India for money. And he found. Trying to go past the world in a different way that most people would not try.
America was not found by Columbus. Columbus stumbled across the Western Hemisphere in 1492.

America was founded by a group of gentlemen we refer to as the founding fathers.
