Franklin D. Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the United States and inherited the worst economic disaster that has ever faced our nation, the Great Depression. To combat unemployment, negative attitudes, and the stumbling economy, FDR created The New Deal. In May of 1932 Roosevelt said, "The country needs, and unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something."
