 Hitler Doesn't Declare War on the US
As the US Atlantic fleet moves to the Pacific, the British navy is stretched to the limit.
US battleships and aircraft carriers in the Atlantic made it less likely that the still formidable survivors of the German surface fleet would sortie into the Atlantic again like the Bismarck had done earlier in the war.
Even in the darkest days of early 1942, the US kept a minimum of over 70 destroyers, some battleships and cruisers, and at least one aircraft carrier in the Atlantic, and the number of destroyers actually rose again to 95 by September 1942 as new destroyers were commissioned.

 The Cruise of the Great White Fleet
When the fleet arrived in San Francisco on May 6, the hills surrounding the city by the Bay were packed with thousands of greeters, many brought in by special trains from outlying communities.
Though this slight was due to operational requirements and unintentional on the fleet's part, it did contribute to the peculiar funk known to the Chinese as "losing face." But Peking rallied, and in order to "save face," told the people that the rest of the fleet was lost in a typhoon.
The enthusiasm of the cheering multitudes waiting on shore to greet the fleet was not dampened by the inclement weather, and once again aboard the presidential yacht Mayflower, Roosevelt responded to the rendering of the fleet's 21-gun salute with enthusiastic waves.
