After serving four terms as president, Franklin Roosevelt passed away due to hemorrhage in the brain. Doctors attempted to revive him, but there was no use. When he passed away, Harry Truman picked up the role as President. He tried to push forward the same policies that Roosevelt did, but he was not as successful, and he was not as popular with the people like Roosevelt was. He did, however, manage to push forth the same types of policies that Roosevelt did during his four terms.
