Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected president on March 4, 1933. Being at the height of the depression, Roosevelt’s goal was to reform the nation’s economy. He introduced this in his “New Deal” plan. While his plan was unclear, the nation still saw him as a beacon of hope at the depth of the depression. To pull off his “New Deal”, Roosevelt hired many political advisors, including Francis Perkins, the first woman ever to be elected into a presidential cabinet.
During his presidency, he reduced the debt by $23 million. Many years before Jefferson became president, the Barbary states had sent pirates to attack and capture European and American ships, cargo, and sailors. They would then hold the crews for ransom and demanded large sums of money for safe passage. The US and European countries would routinely give into these demands because they knew it would cost less than war. Jefferson had opposed this from the beginning, so when he was president, he made it all change.
But it was true that his presidency was not very recognizable and it had a lot of backfire and different bad moments, the Great Depression had a lot to do with why Hoover’s presidency failed, the people had thought that since he couldn’t keep the stock market together that he would not be able to keep America together. Hoover getting undermined by Congress was definitely not what he thought was going to happen, thinking that he could just be able to rebuild America after the depression would have been easier if he and Congress had gotten along, in the end, Herbert Hoover was the thirty first president of the United States and had served this country and had made sure that it got administered America as though anyone would have if the stock market had happened to crash, it’s good to think back to Hoover’s humanitarian works because he did help out a lot of people in serious need, he did all of this but still having a complete income of millions of dollars working as a mining engineer, he was creative about his ideas and with that he created such things as the Hoover Dam,
Court-Packing Plan Predicament War Throughout the years, mankind has helped its people to the best of its ability; however, the things that people do for others are not necessary the right choice for everyone involved. After the fall of the “Roaring Twenties,” the Great Depression came forward bringing troubles for America economically, politically, and socially. After President Herbert Hoover left office, the American people developed a sense of hope as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt embarked on coming up with programs that would help America; This plan was named “FDR’s New Deal which brought about a new era: The New Deal Era. After having some articles fail to pass, President Roosevelt had a plan for the Supreme Court that soon had effects of distraught and anger on the American people. This was known as the Court-Packing Plan incident.
Even though there is the existence of the arguments from businesses and other places where people who were involved like the community did not relate to where the “government runs everything" desires of the New Deal, many of its best changes slowly accomplished national acceptance. Roosevelt 's projects to help the country were hugely followed in the Fair Deal of President Harry S. Truman 1945-53, and both major U.S. parties in which are Republicans and Democrats came to receive most New Deal changes (for the better) as a permanent part of the national life
Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal redefined the role of the Federal Government in the lives of the everyday citizens. FDR warned the U.S. of the dangers posed by Germany, Italy and Japan before most recognized them as a threat (History.com). After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor Hawaii and war was declared FDR took a leading role in forming an alliance between countries to combat the Axis powers (History.com). Throughout the war effort President Roosevelt took to the airways on a regular basis to report on the war and to rally the American people to support the war. FDR also helped set the stage for a post war peace organization that came to be known as the United Nations (Histroy.com).
The Assassination of President William McKinley William McKinley was the 25th President of the United States, he did many things people agreed with such as leading us to victory in the Spanish- American war, raising protective tariffs to promote american industry and he also urged the annexation of Hawaii which proved to be a smart move for the U.S. Unfortunately not everyone agreed with his views and what he had done as a president and he was shot twice on September 6, 1901 while at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo, New York by 28-year old anarchist Leon Czolgosz. A few, but not many may say that his assassination was justified but I believe it was extremely unjustified. President Mckinley did many great things while in office. He was also liked by many and won his reelection easily.
He tried to keep the United States at peace by refusing to enter the League of Nations and placing high taxes on imported goods. Inside the United States, he cut taxes and took a step back from leading the country. Even though he didn’t say much Silent Cal signed the Revenue Act of 1924 which reduced the top marginal tax rate to 46% and eventually 25% (Calvin Coolidge leads the Roaring 20s). People were thrilled with his tax cuts. It reflected post-war happiness and the economic
After World War II, President Truman warned of communism encroaching on nations vulnerable to Soviet control. The Policy of Containment pledged the U.S. would form strategic alliances and support weak independent nations with military support and economic assistance. A $400 million U.S. appropriation was granted in 1947 to support Greece and Turkey which had lost British assistance. This evolved into the Truman Doctrine that included the Marshall Plan which provided humanitarian aid to devastated Western European nations. After four years and $17 billion these nations established economic security, increased trade with the U.S. and rejected Soviet takeover efforts (ushistory.org).
In general I would say Richard Nixon was a fairly decent president. During a time where there were many protests amongst the American public (especially the youth) against the troops in Vietnam, Nixon was able to pull the troops out of the war. Nixon also reduced the tensions with the Soviet Union, and helped China join the United Nations. He also helped decrease the amount of racial discrimination by segregating schools in the south. It is a shame though, that those achievements of his are not acknowledged because of the Watergate Scandal.
