"BRAIN TRUST"

Characteristics

Although some Americans weren't happy with all the decisions made, people don't realize that not everything can be fixed at once. Roosevelt tried to help everyone but not all the decisions had a positive impact on everybody. He went through with the New Deal with a "can do" attitude. He had small chats on the radio that gave the citizens the feeling as if he was talking to them personally, which made the people of the U.S. more secure and trustworthy of Franklin. It was at first a very warm and positive atmosphere.
