Charles Evans Hughes Sr. (Republican), 31st President of the United States of America, 1st Term: March 4th 1917 - March 4th 1921

Theodore Elijah Burton (Republican), 32nd Vice President of the United States of America, 1st Term: March 4th 1917 - March 4th 1921

 

 

The first term of Hughes is very similar to the second IRL term of Woodrow Wilson, the foreign policy of the administration is almost identical to Wilson's second IRL term (Hughes wanted to prepare for the possibility of war IRL), the domestic policies passed in the term included the following: the eighteenth amendment to the United States Constitution makes the production, transport, and sale of alcohol (though not the consumption or private possession) illegal; the nineteenth amendment to the United States Constitution allows females to vote; the Income Tax was lowered and tariffs were increased (Hughes opposed the sixteenth amendment); the eight hour work day for adult workers is done away with; during the American involvement in the Great War the US government created agencies such as the Food Administration and the Federal Fuel Administration to conserve vital supplies but they are quickly dismantled after the war comes to an end, Hughes tries to pass legislation that makes it near impossible to create agencies like those again but runs out of time while focusing on issues.

I'm surprised a League of Nations even existed in the first place here. It was largely Wilson's brainchild, but Evan Hughes is President instead. :P

We'll say he was persuaded by Former President Roosevelt and former GOP candidate William Taft to support the creation of one, also the British government had ideas about one during WWI as well.
