The US got into World War One because German submarines sunk the passenger boat Lusitania and among the dead was 128 Americans. Also the Germans had sent a telegram to Mexico stating that Germans would finanace the mexican army to retake the territories of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona but this was intercepted by Britian and given to USA . The Germans did this so that if the Americans would join the war they would have fight mexico and Germany would not have to face xtra allied troops.
The US joined the war because of many reasons the main reason i think they joined was because the GGerman sub destroyed American merchant ships that were supplying England
