Destroyers-for-Bases - 50 ships sent to Britain in exchange for America’s use of British bases in the Atlantic. Loophole - the deal did not involve an actual sale, the Neutrality Act did not apply.

Four Freedoms - After winning reelection in 1940, Roosevelt expanded the nation’s role in the war. Speaking to Congress, he listed the Four Freedoms for which both the United States and Britain stood: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.
Lend Lease Act - allowed the U.S. to send weapons to them if they agreed to return or pay rent for them after the war (not a sale, so did not go against Neutrality Act)
