One of the finest Presidents in US history as he put the interests of the nation above his political party. Even though he was a Republican, TR fought against child labor and corporate monopolies on oil and the RR. He supported the Pure Food and Drug Act which helped keep contaminated food and beverages out of the supermarket. Through mediating peace between Russia and Japan and sending the Great White Fleet out for nationalistic and humanitarian purposes, TR proved the US was a major player in global affairs.
America has not had a truly great president since Theodore Roosevelt.
