For all his foreign policy belligerence, Teddy Roosevelt was undoubtedly the greatest President as far as conservation of the natural world was concerned. Not to mention breaking the power of the `Robber Barons`, in his seminal documentary series `America` Alistair Cooke said he had mentioned no President for decades before his time, because none really counted, they were not where the real power was.

Think a few tech companies now, they cheer them over Trump, wait till they do the same over any other President that turns against their power? Next time it might be a reforming liberal they shut out?

"Conservation increasingly became one of Roosevelt's main concerns. After becoming president in 1901, Roosevelt used his authority to protect wildlife and public lands by creating the United States Forest Service (USFS) and establishing 150 national forests, 51 federal bird reserves, 4 national game preserves, 5 national parks, and 18 national monuments by enabling the 1906 American Antiquities Act. During his presidency,Theodore Roosevelt protected approximately 230 million acres of public land."
