When and why did Franklin D. Roosevelt move from isolationist to intervention and did he purposely lead the US into World War 2?

The move from wanting to stay out of the war to intervention was a matter of trying to help the unemployed by helping the UK and creating employment. The attack on Pearl Harbor was what brought the US into the war.
