John Adams was the second President of the United States, and was elected in 1797. During his term he continued on the same path as President Washington. During this time France began to become a constant threat. When the public believed that the United States should go to war with France, John Adams tried to keep the peace between the two countries, and settled the disagreements diplomatically. This made Adams a very unpopular President, even though he kept the United States out of war and kept a relationship with France.
