He was the President of the United States. Wilson was one of the crucial members of the 'Big Three' (Clemenceau, Wilson, Lloyd George) at the Paris Peace Conference that decided what should be done with Germany after WW1.

After the Germans sunk the Lusitania (a US ship with civilians on it) and they tried to send a telegram to Mexico saying if they attack the US the Germans will help and give land back to Mexico. After finding this out he decided to submit a declaration of war to Congress.
