Best Answer

US President Franklin D. Roosevelt did not believe he had the authority to act quickly in case WW 2 caused a threat to the US. He felt constrained by Congress from doing what he deemed necessary to protect the US. When FDR sought to repeal the Arms Embargo Act, he informed the Senate that war might come upon the US. The Senate did not support this and claimed that there was no threat from Germany.
