Why did Hitler declare war on the United States?
Because of his alliance with the Empire of Japan. Germany declared war on America two days after it declared war on Japan.
The pact with Japan, as I understand it.
Why he honored it I do not know, as it wouldn't have been the first time he had told those with whom he had treaties to go pound sand.
I really don't know either then the pact, but as Dude points out, Hitler did not keep always keep commitments.
The same reason he attacked Russia and tried to invade during winter: because he was an idiot.
Barbarossa was launched in June, college boy.
Did he or did he not attempt to continue his push into Russia when winter came?
Has or has not every invading force in Russia's history been defeated by the winter and Russia's 'scorched earth' philosophy?
If you fail to move into Russia and establish a secure hold on the region and the most secure supply lines ever seen by winter, you do not push onward or you will die.
His Mum Doris Hitler told him to.
I think the agreement with japan was just an excuse, for one Japan was not attacked. I think Hitler was an ego maniac, underestimated the US thinking we were only good for support and producing goods. Plus we were already aiding Britain and selling most of their enemies arms and other supplies.
I vaguely recall reading of Hitler promising Mexico it could have the US if it attacked us and helped him take us out.
