Europe and USA (march-april-may 1916)

Jun 2017
If France would have been completely defeated in Verdun in march-april-may-june 1916 just before the battle of the Somme (july-august-september) would the USA have decided to make an intervention in Europe ?
US decision was based on Zimmerman telegram. War in early 1917 wasn't going strongly one way or another at that time. If the war is over in the West there probably is no declaration though because there's no fight to send troops too and the US wasn't going to unilaterally attack Germany.
