George Washington's Presidency George Fox University professor Kerry Irish talked about the presidency of George Washington, who was inaugurated in 1789. Professor Irish argued that Washington was aware his actions in office would set precedents, so despite French assistance to the Colonial Army against the British, Washington kept the U.S. neutral during the French Revolution, seeking to avoid entangling the U.S. in European affairs.
