How do you compare Trump to Franklin Roosevelt?

During the Great Depression Franklin Roosevelt would give comfort to the American people with his fireside chats. He gave us hope in a time of crises, put millions to work In the WPA. He said " We have nothing to fear but fear itself." Trump has not given one word of comfort on a regular basis today as Franklin Roosevelt did and he hasn't put millions of us back to work. Trump has failed as a leader.

    FDR isn't worthy to even be mentioned in a comparison to Donald Trump or anyone else. He was a traitor and, contrary to Marli's comment on Gerald's reply, he did everything he could to start WW2.

    The bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese was orchestrated by Roosevelt as a means to pressure Congress into supporting his efforts to get involved in the European conflict that he worked to ignite.

    In provoking the Japanese to attack an American possession, he committed treason.

    His New Deal policies were failures and so he turned to a proven method of creating mass employment - war. His Zionist brain trust had declared war on Germany in 1933 and held great influence in Roosevelt's administration to get the United States into the war also. Congress wouldn't support the idea because America didn't have a dog in the fight - Roosevelt solved that problem with Pearl Harbor.

    In his 1940 presidential campaign, he promised to keep America out of the war (Woodrow Wilson promised to keep America out of WW1 too, but lied) while, at the same time, used scare tactics to justify "preparedness" against a possible invasion by Germany which never came - Hitler had no interest in attacking America.

    Not long after war broke out in Europe, FDR, while promising that the USA would stay out of it, repealed the neutrality acts and started shipping war supplies, first to the British, and later on, to the Soviets.

    Quite simple:  Roosevelt was a good and competent president.  Trump is a bad, incompetent, corrupt joke of a president.

    No he hasn't.  Any speech he gives the media tries not to show it.

    It's difficult to compare Trump to any other president.

    Or to any other reasonably functioning human for that matter.

    Franklin Roosevelt created WW2 he printed Billions of Dollars to give Americans jobs which in turn found its way to the rich who invested in Germany,  people like Henry Ford and Germany built a huge military force and became Nazis , it looks great making funny money but its not right and human nature will be punished
