In Europe there was war going on. Roosevelt said that it is not are war and we will stay out of it. Roosevelt was making war equipment behind the citizens because he knew that we were going to have to enter the war.
In 1941 the USA had entered WWII. In 1944 Roosevelt was in very bad health but he still ran for his 4th term because he thought he got them in the war he will get them out. Roosevelt said "You don't change horses in the middle of the strem." ("Franklin D. Roosevelt.")
After being elected for his 4th, term the war was coming to an end. Roosevelt died about 3 months after he started the 4th term. He served the president of the USA for the longest time in the history in the USA.

I believe that Roosevelt was a very good president for the USA. He had to think and deal with many struggles in his life and he made the best decisions that he could in the hard time to do what is best for the country. You never know where we would be today if we didn't have Roosevelt to lead the USA through the hard times.
Franklin D. Roosevelt was a very good president and he could be considered a role model because he gave it his all when trying to turn the country around and get it heading in the right direction.
