Best Answer

Actually, Why the U.S. government refused to sign the treaty.

4 Main points

-U.S. republican party was against anything the Democratic President Wilson tried to do. Since the Republican party ran most of the Senate at the time the voting was unfair.

-Senator Lodge started groups against Wilson and his pro-treaty beliefs.

- American people's popular opinion was that if we signed the treaty we would join the League of Nations which Wilson fought so hard to gain in the treaty. But the word "advise" was taken more as an obligation on what the country should do instead of ideas.

- Wilson's stroke really knocked him out of his political momentum he was building towards.
