Letter: Roosevelt could teach Trump about tolerance

Roosevelt could teach Trump about tolerance

A recent poll gave President Trump an F for his response to Charlottesville, Va. Before Teddy Roosevelt became the leader of our country, he was the head of the Police Board in New York. When a German preacher, rector Hermann Ahlwardt, came to the U.S. to preach anti-Semitism, he was met with angry protests by American Jews, and appealed to Roosevelt for police protection. Roosevelt assigned 40 police officers and one police sergeant for this duty – all Jewish.

Oh, and Roosevelt helped pass the Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Amendment to the Agricultural Appropriations Act, and prevented development of wilderness land and added 125 millions acres to our protected national forests.
