Both Adolf Hitler and President Franklin Roosevelt held speeches discussing the current issues that their countries were facing and ways to improve their nations. Hitler was a very charismatic leader who tried to convince his country that it was the right choice to do a better job than the former leader of Germany. “It has been more than fourteen years since the unhappy day, when the German people, blinded by promises of enemies at home and abroad, lost contact with honor and freedom, losing everything ” (Hitler, 1933). Hitler describes the failures of past leaders to get the country on track and how the results were not what the country was looking for. He also talked about communism “With his method of madness” he destroyed his nation (Hitler, 1933). His speech was also used to restore hope to the people of Germany. Hitler also blamed the Treaty of Versailles for his suffering and talked about how the Allies left Germany out of business. Even declaring the land that was taken from them and the large amount of money needed to pay for the repairs that were due, were all the reasons why they lost their self-esteem.
Franklin Roosevelt was aiming to change the United States after the Great Depression. Roosevelt mentioned reasons why the country was suffering. He said: “The values have been reduced to fantastic levels; taxes are increased; Our ability to pay has fallen “(Roosevelt, 1933). He claimed that the trade was frozen, the savings of the people had gone, the peasants had no part to commercialize their products, as well as a large number of unemployed citizens (Roosevelt, 1933). Franklin D. Roosevelt accused the United States for the problems of the “financial decline everywhere, of tax increases, the government having limited incomes, and the trade that becomes firm in the existent market
