Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was an american president of the United States. He became president in 1933 until 1945. He was the only president to have been elected four times, that is for 12 years. Which is a very long time. Usually the president can only be elected twice. FDR was born in January 30 1882 in New York and died at the age of 63 in April 12 1945. FDR led the americans through the great depression and during WWII. He probably did allot more changes to america than any other president. FDR has done many amazing things. FDR was elected in 1932 because americans believed that he would be able to help america with the great depression better than the opponent. FDR promised a “New Deal”, this was a series of experimental projects and programs, to help the american government and economy get back together. This was very successful and had the americans get more jobs. There was actually two new deals. The first one made the economy stronger. The “New Deal” built dams along the Tennessee river, this was to regulated the flow of water and to avoid flooding. This also made electric power. Also during this time it passed bills to pay commodity farmers. They did this to end agricultural surplus, so it can boost prices of the products. But after all this there was still a lot of people unemployed. The second new deal fixed this by creating the Works Progress Administration (WPA). This was to provide jobs for unemployed people. This was not allowed to oppose the private industry. And to keep the workers safe, the wagner act was there to make sure that the workers were not being treated unfairly. The United States did not want to enter WWII, and FDR was really focused on the post war. FDR also wanted to abandon its neutrality acts and wanted to get Britain and France to buy from them any armed forces. FDR is a very important person. He has done many things that helped the United States become survive WWII and the great depression. He is the one who the United States to what it is today.
