During the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover passed through three stages: * Deny the crisis * Blame foreigners * Say government can't do much about it That's pretty much what Trump has done, too. I talked to historian Eric@rauchway  about the parallels:

People like Senator Mitch McConnell and President Trump who say let's “pause” and do nothing more, they remind me of Herbert Hoover. They could lead us into a second Great Depression.

Sen. Schumer on GOP senators choosing inaction: “You know who they remind me of? Herbert Hoover. When we were on the edge of a potential depression, Herbert Hoover said, ‘Let’s do nothing.’ That’s what these guys are saying.” #inners 

We need to go big and bold But Pres. Trump and Sen. McConnell are saying they want a PAUSE At the outset of the Great Depression, Pres. Hoover was also reluctant to use national resources If Republicans go the way of Herbert Hoover again, we could see a second Great Depression

Trump on donating his salary: "They actually say George Washington may have been the only other president who did..See whether or not all the other of your favorites give up their salary. The answer is no." -- ❌False. Herbert Hoover and JFK donated theirs

Herbert Hoover (?right of JFK), the 31st president, was the first American executive in chief to refuse a salary. He was a multimillionaire from a previous career as an engineer and businessman and donated his paycheck to charitable causes
