Does Donald Trump Channel Teddy Roosevelt?

It has been many years since we had The Trust Buster or The Lion (nicknames for Teddy Roosevelt) who campaigned on

“Speak softly and carry a big stick”.

Many of us today can only glimpse a bit of his boisterous bravado, that was well earned, through his volumes of writings and newsreel footage:

and famously quoted:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Though dissimilar in career paths, both Teddy Roosevelt and Donald Trump (not dissimilar in nature), desired/are determined to keep and Make America Great Again!
