The Governments of Bulgaria, Hungary, and Romania have declared war against the United States. I realize that the three
Governments took this action not upon their own initiative or in response
to the wishes of their own peoples but as the instruments of Hitler.
These three Governments are now engaged in military activities directed
against the United Nations and
are planning an extension of these activities.
Therefore, I recommend that the Congress recognize
a state of war between the United States and Bulgaria, between the United
States and Hungary, and between the United States and Romania.
