"Time magazine called meru and a funny little man but he got elected and he got elected. You know we we say. Donald trump keep information from joe biden over the past several weeks that that he desperately needs to prepare administration. But fdr did something. I think possibly worse he. He counts all information from from harry. Truman dead all relevant information. So they'd only met two times in office in their three months and after his first cabinet meeting it was secretary stimpson who asked the new president. Harry truman hey can we have a word in private about the manhattan project and truman was absolutely shocked. Had no idea this program was going on despite the fact that he had run the truman committee and do an awful lot about vince but he was he was completely blind. Sided by it. All and yet despite that with the help of extraordinary cabinet with george marshall and dean atkinson george kenan evren herrmann. Who is his ambassador to the soviet union. He created a foreign policy construct that has really shaped. It created the american century but whealy shaped everything that happened over the past seventy years. Every president the twelve presidents had followed republican or democrat alight. They walked around the world stage on stage. That was and built designed by harry. Truman and that is really extraordinary for a man who just a dozen years before he became commander in chief and learned about the manhattan project was a county administrator in jackson. County missouri worrying about roads and making payroll so talk about the challenge faced at the end of the second world war so truman came in april of nineteen forty five. They were still fighting a war with in europe and in the pacific and truman had to bring those two wars to an end. He also had to make the fateful decision on whether to drop atomic bombs on japanese said. He's until they surrendered deciding that millions of lives would be saved if he did drop those bombs and then it was critically important for him to rebuild europe because a continent that was starving to death a continent with with millions of refugees a continent whose industrial base have been completely shattered and taken to the ground by bombing and and this massive war was right for stalin and communism and so truman had to move quickly and i thought it spoke well of truman. That one of the first people he reached out to in rebuilding europe was actually herbert hoover who have course had been..

"Wallace still wanted to stay in the job. Jimmy Byrne, who had been a former senator and Supreme Court justice, who was now heading the office of War Mobilization for roles about hey, was a possibility. In fact, Truman was going to go to Chicago and nominate Jimmy Byrne. Alban Barkley was another possibility, and the Democratic Party leaders made the calculation. Not that Truman was so well qualified for the job, but that he would work hurt the ticket. The lead He's only 2% of a Gallup poll supported Truman. But they thought, you know he wouldn't do any damage. So that was that was that and he came to Chicago and did not want to pay the vice president. And they finally hooked up a call in a Chicago hotel room s O that Truman. They called him in, and he could over here. The Democratic Party chair Hannigan talking to rose about who was in San Diego at the time, and it was all set up and Roosevelt said, Well, have you got Not that Missouri senator to sign on, and Hannigan said No, he is the contrary. It's Missouri Mule I've ever met and rose out, said Well, if he wants to break up the Democratic Party and see my presidency in the middle of World War two anyway, they put Roosevelt on the phone and the protests didn't resisted for a little bit And finally side of the commander in chief wants me to do it. I'll do it, so he was on the ticket. They get elected there. Inaugurated in January, January 2040. Five and Roosevelt completely forgets about Truman was vice president for 82 days. He had met with Roosevelt in private twice and those 82 days and as you point out, he is sworn in as president about 6 15 6 30 on April 12th and he trusted the covenant tells him I want you all to stay on. They all leave and the Secretary of War, Henry Stimson, says, Mr President, I need to talk to you takes him into a private room and says, I need to tell you About an immense project to develop Ah, weapon of indescribable power. That was literally he'd been vice president, as I say, for almost three months. That was literally the first inkling that Truman had about the existence of the Manhattan project to develop the atom bomb. Roosevelt had never shared it with. So were do we know if any senior members of Congress had been briefed on the project? No. No members know members of Congress had been briefed on the prize. How interesting thing Truman was keyed into all about. It's possible. He was the head of something called the Truman Committee, which was specifically involved and authorized to look into defense spending. And at one point he had been poking around about an installation in Washington state, which in fact was part of the Manhattan project. And when Stinson the secretary of war, got word about this, I think Eh? Three or four. He calls up Truman and says, Listen, Senator, I know all about that project and you know, I just want you to know it's okay and Truman completely backed off and said, if you know if that's what you say, Mr Secretary, I take your word for it. And that was one of the things Truman was astonished by because Congress had appropriated $2 billion in the previous two years, but it had been all secret and Woman couldn't understand. All that kind of money could have been turned over from Congress to the administration, and they didn't know what they were spending little. Where did the Manhattan Project at its name? Well, Ah, lot of the scientists were in Manhattan at the time. The basic history is that in 1939 let me back up just a little bit. So you have a number of Jewish German refugees who leave Germany, A skipper rises to power and they understood that a CZ Jews that they weren't long for this world and they go to England. Or they go to the United States on that includes Albert Einstein, and there is an increasing fear as we get to the late thirties that Germany which still has a lot of brilliant scientists may develop a nuclear weapon, an atom bomb and the last thing any of these scientists what is tohave Hitler? Have access to the on ly atom bomb in the world. So in 1939 Albert Einstein writes a letter to FDR and basically says, You know, we think this technology is out there and the U. S. A free world needs it to develop before Hitler and the Nazis do. Roosevelt kind of sets you on it until 1942. When shirt show on. There were some of these scientists who were in in Britain says Rose about, you know, we really need to get going on it. And in 1942 he starts the Manhattan project. As I say. A lot of the scientists were in Manhattan in one of the things that happens is they assign a major general named Leslie Groves to start putting this together and grows realize you can't have all these fine is all With the country. You've got to put them all together on DH. That's the really beginning in the Manhattan project, and you see three major installations. Oh Bridge in Tennessee, which ends up becoming and a regiment uranium enrichment site. Same thing for Hanford, Washington and then the really brainpower. About 8000 scientists and technicians on engineers at Los Alamos in kind of a very Hurted area of of New Mexico, where Robert Oppenheimer, the scientific director of the project, had spent some of his time growing up is a kid and he convinced Groves. Let's put the really laboratory there on C SPAN radio. This is Q and day. Our guest this week is Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on his new book Countdown. 1945. Can you tell me a little bit more about Robert Oppenheimer's 40 years old at the time? What did he bring? The table for this project. Absolute brilliance. He was ah, brilliant, theoretical physicist, astonishingly intelligent brain power. He knew six languages. He he learns the sand script so we could read a Hindu devotional upon the bag. Abad Guica, which later comes into the story on DH, you know ones were the instinct thing he was seen as You know something about from Adana as a lot of the scientists were, But Groves decides he's the right man for the project. And it was this fascinating combination of groves. Who was this six foot, £250 bulldozer of a guy who in 1941 and two and about a year and 1/2 built the Pentagon on and you know, which is the biggest office building in the world. And, you know, just Massive project and built it right on time. And so the government decides and Roosevelt decides he's the right guy to do this massive project and that he then recruits Oppenheimer to do it. And so you have the military push and drive and discipline of groves. And then you have the sheer scientific brilliance of Oppenheimer, who was the scientific director of the program, And I think Oppenheimer really is the key figure here because on the one hand And you had grows demanding military discipline and security and deadlines, and a lot of the scientists were were bucking out of office. And somehow Oppenheimer kind of had to keep the scientists on board while on the other hand, trying to meet the deadlines that the growth was setting, and Rose was not Marie was not for a patient. He called the 8000 scientists and Los Alamos a bunch of prima donnas and said that he was He was conducting a giant opera. So it was a kind of clash of temperaments and wills. But somehow it worked. I was struck by the quote you had of Oppenheimer's reaction on the news of his death. The quote was Roosevelt was a great architect. Perhaps Truman will be a very good carpenter was Truman knew absolutely nothing about the Manhattan project. The scientists knew nothing about Frumin. You know they had been working, not hand in glove, because obviously that there was some separation and Roosevelt have a lot of other things on his plate. But they knew they were working very much of the direction of the president and that he had taken a keen personal interest in starting and funding and keeping the Manhattan project going, And now suddenly he's gone..

"By the summer of Nineteen, forty four, after was constantly battling illness, and he was losing the fight, FDR's personal secretary grace, tully wrote I observed the signs of cumulative wariness, the dark circles that never quite faded from under his is the more pronounced shake in his hand, as he lit his cigarette, the easy slump, the developed in his shoulders. The White House did their best to hide. FDR's worsening condition, but many Democratic leader could see the writing on the wall. In the face of FDR's declining health, it might have been a good idea for Democratic leaders to opt to go in a different direction, but their campaign slogan showed where they stood. Don't change horses in the middle of the Stream FDR was a wartime president and the country was at war. The Democrats would stand behind him. Still Health did lift up the importance of choosing a suitable vice president, and for most Democrats Henry. Wallace was no longer the man for the job. If Wendell Willkie was too liberal for most Republicans for most Democrats. Vice President Henry Wallace was on another planet. Wallace was stridently anti racist and pro civil rights at a time when those views were far from the mainstream, but his extreme progressivism wasn't the only strike against him. There was also the deer. Guru scandal. Decades before the nineteen forty four campaign Henry Wallace had developed an interest in an eccentric Russian. A Nicholas Roerich a mystic whose teachings were not at all. Christian Wallis had admired mortgage so much that he traded letters with him wherein he seemed to discuss US foreign policy. Roerich is loyalty to the US was questionable at best as was the severity of his influence over Wallace during the nineteen forty presidential campaign, these previously undisclosed letters had fallen into Republican hands. Hands and if released, the letter would have damaged Wallace's credibility and FDR's judgment, but the letters were never released mainly because the Democrats had dirt on Republican candidate, Wendell willkie and they threaten to expose. We'll keys illicit affair with powerful magazine editor named Rita Van Doren, but in Washington's inner circles, the Guru letters were common knowledge, and with Wilkie out of the race and any chance of reciprocal extortion gone. There is always a chance. Wallace letters might be released. In nineteen forty, FDR had refused to cut ties with walls. You was a close friend and progressive ally, but by the summer of nineteen, forty four, nearly the entire democratic establishment had turned on walls, including several members of Roosevelt's inner circle and Bob Hannigan, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee these party leaders made it clear that if FDR stock with Wallace. He might not win a fourth term. In the summer of nineteen, forty, four after Yar began to accept the inevitable wallace would have to go. Is July tenth nineteen forty four at the White House Vice President Henry? Wallace has just come from meeting in the executive offices as he makes his way through the lobby Wallace's hounded by some forty reporters. I. What did you and the president discussing? You're meeting? Well we had a very lengthy conference about China. We discussed nothing else. The situation is very great vice president. Are we to take it that the one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four political situation was not even mentioned. No, it was not mentioned Mr Wallace. Are you a candidate for nomination again for vice, president? Recently FDR's advisers privately told Wallace that he was a political liability and suggested he cost the president boats. The asked him to resign, but today when Wallace confronted the President about this FDR was cagey so now Wallace's frustrated. He doesn't WANNA. Make it public spectacle. He flashes. A smile gives them measured answer. We'll have to talk about the nomination at some future time. Are you going to the Convention in Chicago next week I'm the chairman of the Iowa delegation. Of course I'm going. Are you their favorite son? Wallace pauses for a moment considered his response to this very loaded question. If he says no, he'll be publicly conceding the contest for the vice presidency. If he says yes, they'll be throwing down the gauntlet by defying Democratic Party leaders as he hesitates. Reporter presses the question. What do you say? Mr, vice-president are you Iowa's favorite son, or aren't you? I I am. Wallace's conversation with reporters in the White House lobby was added in the New York Times too many Wallace's intentions were crystal clear as the Times explained. Wallace responses were taken to mean that the vice president intended to go to Chicago next week as an avowed candidate for the renomination. For FDR. Bad News because Wallace wasn't going anywhere. While Henry Wallace was making waves in the press. Democratic leaders grappled with a question of his replacement, going into the nineteen forty four convention the democratic. Party was deeply divided in the north. Labor leaders were at war with Pro Business Party bosses in the south many were fed up with government intervention, especially on the issues of voting rights for black. Americans Roosevelt had held the loose democratic coalition Together for twelve years, but FDR's popularity was waning. The vice presidential candidate might make or break party unity and sway the outcome of the election so for FDR, the choice was a monumental one. As one DNC official would later write the decision to shell vice. President Wallace and nominate senator. Harry Truman in his place is one of the episodes in American history that will baffled scholars of the future, because not accounts of at agree completely and some very widely. Harry Truman had made a big impression leading one party leader to call Truman a cinch for the vice presidency but Truman didn't want the job in June. He had written a prominent democratic business leader. Please don't run me for Vice President I like my job as a united, states senator and that is where I want to stay. But party leaders wouldn't take no for an answer. On July, eleventh, nineteen forty four, Roosevelt and his advisors gathered at the White House to pick a candidate. As the names of potential VP's were bandied about. FDR was unusually client after listening for some time, the long list of candidates FDR finally broke his silence, and said all right bob start talking. Bob Hannigan chairman of the Democratic National Committee was a longtime friend of Harry Truman. Hannigan like Truman hailed from Missouri and Truman owed Hannigan as he helped electric to the US Senate, a Truman presidency was easy for Bob Hennigan to imagine. Truman lived in Missouri, a border state to the southern region which would calm the fears of many southern voters who are souring on FDR. Truman also had name recognition, his leadership in the Senate Truman Committee at Save the government billions of dollars and made him extremely popular. Hannigan made his case and afterwards, FDR. Said Bob. I think you and everyone else here want true. It wasn't exactly a resounding endorsement for Hannigan. It was more than enough. When, Hannigan gave Henry Wallace the bad news, it didn't sit well offended. Wallace went straight to the president's office and offered his resignation in response FDR on quite the show, saying I could not think of accepting FDR trying to console walls, saying while I, cannot put it just that way in public I hope it will be the same team. After Yar, acknowledged that another Wallace Roosevelt ticket was an unlikely scenario, but not to worry. He told Wallace. You would find a job for him regardless. Wallace wasn't fooled by FDR doublespeak. He would later write in his diary that are wanted to ditch me as noiselessly as possible. But Wallace was fully prepared to make some noise and put up a fight going into the Democratic convention, but he wasn't the only one James F, Byrnes FDR's director of the war mobilization office did not want wallace to be vice-president either Burns wanted the number two job for himself..

"Dick that deputy editor of roll call newspaper and you can take we found out this weekend that speaker Pelosi wants a fourth stimulus bill moved in a matter of weeks on Capitol Hill how is that received by the White House and by Republican leaders in the Senate so you're they've been talking about a a fourth stimulus package for over a little bit a little bit and trading you know ideas about what might be in such a attack Eje even missing Connell those kind of your leader who is typically one of Nancy Pelosi's antagonist with with us your choices like this I said before they even passed the third stimulus that they were going to need a fourth one since then they've both camera Carthy who is the house minority leader and Mitch McConnell who is the Senate Majority Leader had said we want to see how this phase three the third package that they that they passed recently and the president signed late March and see how it's going seeing how it's being implemented but right off the bat we've been hearing from particularly small businesses that you almost three hundred and fifty billion dollars in the last ten is not enough to keep them afloat you know it anyone ever from restaurants to bookstores kids anything like that is you know get you really can have difficulty making payroll and paying people's insurances of course so the you know the the speakers said that they're gonna need to you know maybe double that amount in the next stimulus package the speaker had floated some us some ideas last week with her own colleagues about whether or not they want to do a stimulus around infrastructure package in this next English package the the president himself and said we should go big we should spend up to two trillion dollars on infrastructure you know it's infrastructure week is is one of those sort of things it gets routed out every once in awhile as it's almost become a you know as a signal that we're gonna have a weird week I mean this is I was in a regular times but that was that was bandied about is simply the president wanted to do it the speaker wanted to do it there publicans in Congress said like Hey let's focus on health care workers let's focus on some things so right now this the speaker sent out a letter over the weekend in which she said that the next round is going to be focused on small businesses and healthcare workers in particular so it's still taking shape you know Congress both both chambers and said that they're not going to necessarily be back here until April twentieth unless something is extraordinary is were choirs them to be back in Washington also that this is they've got a little bit of time to trade these are these things these things back and forth a story from roll call on some of the leverage and lobbying efforts Lindsey McPherson when your colleagues with this story state request for more systems probably the biggest leverage for a phase for stimulus according to pelo see talk us through a little bit about what what governors and mayors are doing sort of the the bottom up lobbying campaign here yeah I mean I I think that because the president and his task force are are are do these briefings every single day and talking about CDC guidelines it seems like they're the ones who were directing most of the response and that's you know that's just simply not true mayors governors county executives these are the people who are direct responses including you know from the National Guard you know they're they're little they got as governors who are activating their national guards to serve and and these for the prompt to testing sites and in hospitals and so forth we even have some members of Congress who responded to that you know they they're quickly running out of money in a lot of states a lot of cities can't run deficit spending insane with the federal government can and so they're going to they're going to need help pretty quickly particularly with you know it as does the C. some first responders get sick and then have to deal with it spindles in in areas that are on the front lines I mean the big cities like New York obviously I've been at the epicenter of this and and we've we've we've seen the kind of response that Andrew Cuomo the governor New York is designed to serve Courtney for not just his city the New York City but the rest of the state to minorities to disturb very distinct kind of regions upstate and and in the city but he's kind of you know sort of corny all this stuff all at once in the middle of it being sort of the epicenter something with New Jersey so these governors and these mayors who are dealing with quarantines and and sort of you know lock downs and so forth and they're the ones who are are going to pressure the the you know Congress and the White House the most isn't that joining us this morning from his home on Capitol Hill usually with us when he can be but sat covering it off for a capital hometown newspaper roll call roll call dot com is the website if you want to see all of their work and chasing Dick we we found out that last week that it too close he wants a a new select committee overseeing a corona virus response a would be headed she wants by congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina Carson Cliburn was on CNN's state of the union yesterday he talked a little bit about that role that that that his select committee would have here's what he had to say my understanding is that this committee will be forward looking and we're not going to be looking back on what the president may or may not have done back before this crisis yet the crisis is with us American people are now out of work it is a vampire the work the question is whether or not the money there's appropriate it will go to support them and their families well not this money will end up in the pockets of a few profiteer is terrorists and that's what I understand we are to do we are pattern in this after the trump a minute and I spent the weekend looking deeply into the Truman committee and what happened since March one nineteen forty one everything was stood up and stayed up for five years and what would be very very successful and I'm trying to base my work on this committee on the history that's found that with the work of that committee James Clyburn on CNN yesterday case index what does it take to get a committee like that up and running and what's been the reaction since need to close he unveiled his plan last week salute I mean the reaction from the the the leadership in one of the reasons that Nancy Pelosi wanted Jim Clyburn to leave this committee is that he does he is one of the people who commands a lot of mutual respect us so far Republican's deeply Kevin McCarthy the minority leader you have been skeptical about the need for a select committee to look into you know pandemic spending of the stimulus spending their as as the engine cover was saying on CNN and you also spoke to us for a crown of our special report podcasts on Friday he said that you know this is about making sure that people spend this money wisely not not it's not just any taxpayer money you know expect as this is you know this could be the difference between life and death and is modeled over the the Truman committee during World War two which is really the the sort of platform that launched every two minutes the vice presidency and then the presidency Ken McCarthy and other Republicans are said you know I I don't think that this is necessary it seems kind of redundant there are some oversight authorities that are that are baked into this last stimulus package the phase three you know including a panel of inspector general's inspector a special inspector general for the for the stimulus spending that the president's nominated and and then there's the congressional oversight commission that would need to be selected by the the leaders in the in the house and Senate that's and that does sound like there could be some redundancies asked the majority whip Jim Clyburn about this and he said that well it you got to remember that the day that the president signed the legislation he also issued a signing statement the that he was going to feel free to ignore some of those oversight requirements such as inspector general of sharing information with Congress this is the the the sort of a a consistent conflicts between the administration and Congress I think that what it seems that what Nancy Pelosi and and Russians press one is that they want to be able to say no I mean when the president doesn't even let the ink dry on the signature of the of the bill before saying that he's going to ignore some of it you we want to make sure that we can you know make sure that the money is spent wisely and it gets the people who need it the most so it is I I hesitate to say that it's gone into part typical partisanship but that seems like a fairly partisan reaction I would think that eventually that this will get through the I mean you do need to vote to stand up in a committee that that that being said when I can be back at least until April twentieth in in the house and Senate the house though it eventually will get its way just like they did with the stimulus spending we can it doesn't seem it it seems like a long time ago was only last week or two weeks ago I'm not quite two weeks ago that the house voted the another member of the house had to come back because one of their members didn't want to use unanimous consent of a voice vote to pass that third package so it will eventually get this but you do need you need to vote on it but that doesn't mean that some of the groundwork can't be started and I'm guessing that the the speaker has plenty of ideas about how to start some of that J. as in Jack here to take your phone calls via zoom in this morning that's how he's joining us and you could even maybe ask about some of the books on that very crowded shelf behind him Donald's up first I let me give the phone number so before we get to Donald eastern or central time zone this is a recorded programme from earlier today no phone calls at this time please two seven four eight eight thousand one now Donald from Michigan go ahead good morning America god bless your better front lines battling this over nineteen us to see thank you thank you all I would like to say to all of these Republican polisher color name saying that trump's done a good job only slow growth J. yet at the end Sir we are there three months back in January in the second Merican people know what was going on and get stuff prepared foods epidemic deaths from China we did not so one more thing I like to sleep on the home and then who are you now central time mountain time and he need to get back to the Republicans Democrats clients and are independent so we can get zero zero among the people called in there and one more quick thing in a bar one of trump's the bills in the majors me how Republicans never seen a tax breaks for the one percent did they didn't have any problems passes but when we got legislation for the working poor and middle class and people trying to survive due to September they won debate debate debate list these bills get this country back on and get rid of Donald Trump the twenty twenty tablets in there that's Donald in Michigan I'll take the.

"truman committee" Discussed on This American President

"Mm it didn't help that. FDR didn't prepare me all for the job he didn't include any war strategy meetings or and other meetings General George Patton just who was Harry Truman well he came from very different pedigree than FDR while Roosevelt was raised in a wealthy prominent New York Family Truman had far more modest upbringing he was born in eighteen eighty four and raised in Missouri the son of a farmer in his youth truman learn to play the piano and developed lifelong fondness for history he was voracious reader on anything from ancient Greece to the American civil war after graduating high school he enrolled in call College in Kansas City but left after year he then worked a series of random jobs is a timekeeper at a railway where he slept in camps for Hobos in the mail room of a newspaper and as a bank clerk although he studied for a little while in law school he quit school altogether he was the last American president did not have a college degree true join the National Guard and when America entered World War One he became a captain of an artillery regiment that was sent to France in one thousand nine eighteen it was there that Truman first exhibited the qualities that would mark his tenures president tenacity and leadership he transformed his unit into an active fighting force and they performed admirably while enduring intense combat during the war he was a feisty leader while at the mountains in France he and his soldiers came under heavy German fire when his men started fleeing Truman unleashed a foul mouthed tirade that stop them in their tracks and got them back to fight in another instance he led an attack on the Germans that save many lives in the US Army's Twenty Eighth Infantry Division these were critical experiences is life giving him confidence as he pursued a career in public service when he returned home he quoted a woman named Bess Wallace who he had known since he was six and she was five he proposed to her in nineteen eleven but she turned him down he was persistent and they finally married in Nineteen nineteen they eventually had one her name Margaret Soon Trim went into business and opened up a haberdashery basically a store that sells men's clothing accessories and fortunately this her failed when the economy tanked in the early Twenties Truman was bankrupt but he caught the eye of a local Party boss named Tom Pendergast who was looking for a candidate for public office while most people didn't see much in Truman to pendergast he was an ideal candidate a veteran who is known for hard work and honesty he can Vince Truman to run for County Judge Eastern Jackson County in nineteen twenty two basically being a county supervisor he won the election thus truman began his political career. Although Pendergast was typical political boss seen by many as corrupt and power hungry German got a reputation for comp sense and integrity he adopted political views in the tradition of Jacksonian democracy fighting for the interest of rural citizens and common folks against the corrupt establishment this helped him get elected a US senator in nineteen thirty four Truman arrived in Washington at the start of the Roosevelt Administration as it was implementing it's new deal policies to deal with the Depression Truman was a loyal Democrat and supported many of FDR's programs but it was during World War Two when Truman really made a name for himself he was appointed to chair a special Senate Investigative Committee which became known as the Truman Committee to investigate wasteful defense spending according to some estimates the trim committee saved the taxpayers about fifteen billion dollars or about two hundred ten billion in today's dollars by nineteen four eighty four Harry Truman was sixty years old although he was well respected among his colleagues most Americans didn't know anything about him he likely would have retired an obscure political figure had not been for the events at the nineteen forty four Democratic convention that year FDR was running for his fourth term but he was McMahon in fact his doctor told him he would likely not survive a fourth term especially given the strain of running the war effort and it showed anyone who saw FDR by then already knew that he was in poor health he was too thin for his clothes his jaw often hung open and his skin was Pale Grey Democratic Party leaders had a hunch that he would die in office the problem was that the incumbent vice president was a man named Henry Wallace who was far too liberal for most at the Party and who was a bit of an oddball he had a history of engaging in spiritual mysticism and had poor political skills he was often feuding with other members of the administration but Wallace was popular with the liberal rank and file enduring the convention there was a push to renominate him for vice president but the party bosses engineered for him to be removed from the ticket in his place they found someone with few enemies Harry Truman the evidence indicates that Truman had sought the office but fate had other plans the Roosevelt Truman ticket won that November in Harry Truman became vice president in January nineteen forty five within three months Roosevelt was dead and the former Haberdasher a man with no college degree was the commander in chief of the United States during a pivotal Senate in world history the new president now had to confront the growing conflict with Joseph Stalin a man who had ruled the world's biggest country with an iron fist I for about two decades American advisors were getting more concerned about the Soviet Union by taking over Eastern Europe and installing pro Soviet regime in countries like Poland it was violating the Yalta agreements many Americans felt that Roosevelt had been too lenient on Stalin at Yalta almost all of Truman's major advisers had served Roosevelt for years and gave Truman different advice on how to handle stolen on one side was averill Harriman. America's combat Asadollah to the Soviet Union he was wary of Russian aggression and felt the United States might have to resist any expansionist moves but he also believed that cooperation and was still a possibility after all the Americans and the Russians had been cooperating for years against the Nazis it was better to try to continue this cooperation and not rock the boat too much especially since any daylight between the allies might encourage Germany or Japan to continue the fight on the other side was secretary of the Navy James Forrestal who believed that the conflict between America and the Soviets was inevitable he therefore felt the Americans had no time to lose that we had to confront the Soviets now before they strengthened their position in Europe to Secretary of war Henry Stimson an army chief of staff George Marshall for or stalls idea was sheer lunacy after all Germany and Japan still hadn't surrendered those nations still had to be defeated did we really want go to war against the Soviets when the Nazis and the Japanese were still holding out the Germans might've been on the ropes but the conflict with Japan was fierce so fierce that the Americans hoped the Soviets would enter the war against Tokyo. FDR had asked Stalin to enter the Pacific Theater and Stalin had agreed to do so are the Germans were defeated American strategists hope that this would convince Japanese that they had no chance to win perhaps the war could end sooner with Soviet help thousands of American lives might be spared besides stimpson felt that the Soviet incursion in eastern Europe was less about domination and more about it pushing a buffer zone for their own security they had just been invaded by Germany twice in the past thirty years I during World War One and then during World War Two both times leading to absolute catastrophe and millions of Russian deaths in Stimpson's is it wasn't unreasonable to expect that the Soviets were taking action in to prevent another invasion from Europe these were the immediate decisions that the new inexperienced president faced in his first months in office decisions evolved fates of millions of people around the world on one hand Truman was being told to stand up to the Soviets that they were potentially our next adversary on the her hand he was told that we needed their help in the war against our current adversaries if he pushed the Soviets too hard he might jeopardize the alliance against the access power ars. And if the Nazis and the Japanese had a sense that the allies were quarreling with each other it might encourage them to fight on could prolong the war on the other hand allowing the Soviets to impose their will over eastern Europe could signal to the Soviets that the Americans were unwilling to enforce the altar agreements it could be seen by Stalin as a sign of American weakness in emboldened him to undertake further aggression it could give the Soviets a stronger hand in the postwar world and it could mean sacrifice.

"Midwest and up to Michigan and back to Washington DC covers thousands of miles in his little car he came back to Washington stood up behind his desk on the floor of the Senate chamber and said I have some deep concern and so he devised a strategy and even the hint that the Truman committee may be coming to investigate a particular planter particular corporation will lead to internal changes so that there will be no need for an investigation it's a really effective committee that exist all through wartime and arguably he would not have been vice presidential candidate with out his chairmanship of the committee it really raised his national profile and so battles over executive privilege in the kind of information that Congress has the right to look at that has often led to some of the most notable Senate investigation and he we think of the army McCarthy hearings I mean it's a terrific clash between the legislative and executive branches in nineteen fifty three senator Joe McCarthy Republican of Wisconsin makes a very splashy claim that he has evidence that communists are working within the federal government he makes a really bold claim that the United States Army is perhaps protecting some communists who work for it there are enough people in the central government at that point willing to defend the army that even though Joe McCarthy had quite a following and had accumulated a great deal of power as chairman of this committee that they were willing to sort of push back against some of the cars these charges alternately the way that Joe McCarthy has treated members of the Senate and witnesses over the course of his investigation leads to his declining influence in the Senate and he's alternately censured in nineteen fifty four I think the idea of of congressional investigations as sort of political theater has really the and that has been something that developed in the nineteen fifties and continues with us today hearings on the the proconsular no anti contra need a broad ministration nor I'm tired ministration we are not prosecutors and this is not an adversarial proceeding we're used to seeing the Senate investigating something or the house investigating and they don't always agree they don't always work together but in the case of the Iran contra investigation it was such an important issue and they had such national significance that they brought committees together to form a joint investigating committee and so you have members of the house and the Senate side by side looking into the issue of aid to the contras reminded and I hopefully everybody the executive branch the Congress has a role in foreign policy did.

"Dr Kirk Graham is the director of the Harry. S Truman Presidential Library in Independence Missouri next year will be seventy five years since Truman succeeded. FDR's president and an anticipation of that anniversary sorry the Truman Library has undertaken a major renovation. Kurt join me in studio last week for a wide ranging and fascinating conversation on the importance of history. Sorry the founding of the State of Israel and Truman's legacy today Kurt. Thank you so much joining us great to be here. I WANNA start with kind of a Meta question from that thirty thousand in foot view before even dive into Truman. Why is it important to study history well. I mean if you think about where we've been that gives us. A good sense of is it provides context for where we are so I think the main reason to study history is to get context for your own time but also to expand your your experience we all lead fairly limited lives and I think you go back in the past and meet characters in the past for the same reason you take a plate of cookies and go meet your neighbors because that that expands your horizons expand your experience. It introduces you to people who don't think an act and talk and look like you do and I think that's always very beneficial. There's an interesting kind of debate. The in the community of historians think about or maybe a debate in the general public about whether history repeats itself your typical historian would say no but you can still learn something thing from history about maybe not learn about the future but as long as we know the lessons of history it can inform the way we address the future. Where where do you fall out. I think yeah I mean I think that people who who are fearful that somehow we're not learning the lessons of history. We're doomed to repeat some catastrophic decision. The fact of the matter is the context. The circumstances are always different so you you can't go back and say well see we learned this from World War. Two or we learned I mean honestly one of the reasons that Vietnam went the way it did is because we were applying the lessons of World War Two and it was a very different kind of engagement and so I I is obviously very worthwhile to study history to know ourselves better and to have a broader experience because it just makes us better the decision makers in general but the idea that we can go back and figure out what you know what Abraham Lincoln do in this situation well you know I mean you know people. Ask that all the time. What would the founders under. Do you know around this. You know global warming or something well. That was the furthest thing from their mind. They wouldn't have even known where to start with that question so we need to be bold enough to make our own decisions and not try to pass it off on other people who you know grab a quote and taken out of context and say we'll see here's what Emerson would have done or here's what Jefferson would have done well yeah. Maybe I'm picturing someone explaining leaning twitter to Abraham Yeah. I'm not sure how that would and trying to explain it. Not only one hundred forty characters Kurt your. AJC AJC story starts in two thousand eighteen at the AJC global forum in Jerusalem when you spoke on our main stage and you said quote you believe there's no better place in the United United States to tell the story of the founding of Israel than the Truman Library for our listeners who don't know that part of history. Can you tell us about Truman's role in the rebirth of modern Israel well. It is just to pick up on that on that statement. I appreciate you starting there. Because there is no other place there is no other museum. There is no other think tank. There is no other sort of university department or unit that is pursuing this important question and the thing that is important to me is that Harry Truman literally changed the map of the world. The fact that this farmer from Missouri became president it says a lot about a lot of things but it does have an impact on the world far beyond just farmers in Missouri so certainly his decision and desire hire to recognize Israel immediately upon its declaration and to have been concerned about that problem to have been concerned about the Holocaust about the DP camp. Some of this had been playing him for years. This was not oh he got three memos and you know sort of weighed this in in an afternoon decided what to do this decision which was momentous. Mantis was years in the making and and it speaks to the heart not just a crisis in the world and what needed to be done it speaks to WHO Harry Truman was he always was concerned about people who are being abused or or taking advantage of some ways I mean his civil rights. Legacy speaks to that he was ahead of his time in terms of an I don't know maybe that's not even the right phrase ahead of his time. He was concerned about others. It was a very basic principle whole there's a humanity to that. There's there's a reality that that Truman just always went back to kind of moral core when he made those kinds of decisions. I'm glad you mentioned that and Holocaust there. If I recall correctly Truman spoke at a rally in either New York or Chicago in Chicago. It was called. I'd like Rally for our Doom Jewish brothers in Europe something like that right to demand rescue the doom Jews I believe was the phrase and this was where where was this was in nineteen forty three when he was still in the US Senate yeah so he was a little known political figure at that time I mean he was getting known and being known for the Truman Committee which he went around the country in a crisis that we have on display at the museum the traveled No no first class jet travel in those days so he went from place to place and he was investigating fraud and abuse in government contracts around military installations and that kind of thing so so that was kind of what he was known for him he was getting known a a sort of a a guy that really knew how to find waste and fraud and the budget and whatnot but the idea that he was this voice for the underdog that he was this great humanitarian this champion the rights of other people even though those of us who look back on his career well of course I mean this was this was this was this was growing all along but the fact of the matter is that speech in Chicago was was a turning point for the rest of the world to hear from him with with that kind of clarity and this is a young senator with ambition establishing a foreign policy credential or this is just someone who feels called to speak out against injustice in the world. Oh I think it's I think but I think it's more the latter. I mean I really don't. I don't know that Truman at that time. I think that you know not only was he not necessarily trying to carve out his exact thing. You know we're we're used to the United States Senate Senate today being a place where as soon as people get there they start thinking about how they get on the ticket and what they do to position themselves for that next bump Truman was a senator senator. He was very hesitant to become vice president he wanted to stay in the Senate. you spoke a little bit about what the founding of if Israel would have meant to Truman and certainly what it meant for the world. Can you just back up a little bit and tell us the story you know my understanding is that kind of all of his advisors here in the states. All of his official advisors were saying you pump the brakes right so what happens in. May Nineteen forty eight well you know it is an interesting moment and it is not a moment that would be the easy to predict. I mean if you didn't know how the story turned out and somebody said okay. Here's all the data points leading up to this decision. How do you think it's going to go. I don't think you can clearly guess us what is going to happen because I think the decision was rooted. Not In policy not in the particulars was rooted in character and it was rooted in this deeper kind of humanity yeah the story was was that Truman with these DP camps and we had the Harrison report. He had all these things telling him look things are not good in Europe. These people are displaced in many cases. Don't have homes to go back to so this idea of a of a partition plan of the following through on the Balfour Declaration. which was you know? World War One product which basically basically promised the Jews a homeland and Truman just felt that that's something that should be honored but you're right. I mean he had to go against his own State Department. Many of his I mean including General Marshall who was very close friend mentor advisor someone he respected probably more than anybody else at the time he also had a to grapple with an ally the British who were were not wanting to take people from Europe allow them to land in in and with a called Palestine because they didn't you know the problems at that would create from their perspective but Truman valued and follow that partition plan that idea of sort of what we would call today a two-state solution didn't go that way obviously but but nevertheless it was something that he felt was important so when when the country was going to be declared this this new nation was going to be sort of birthed if you will he was right there within literally within hours of that declaration the United States recognized the new state of Israel. There's this famous story of high invites men who would go on to be the first president of Israel was in D. C. and the Jews in mandatory Palestine the Jewish community designers community unity in America kind of thought that the best chance for US recognition I think would be vitamins sat down with Truman and there's a fellow named Eddie Jacobson who kind of facilitates dates this right right the so Jacobsen is a as a World War Two buddy of Truman's they ran the commissary together and then after the war they went into business together in in Kansas City and that's the you've heard the failed haberdashery clothing store that went out the because the economy was bad they couldn't make a go of it but he Jacobsen Simpson Jacobson of course with Jewish and they were very close friends which when you go back into that time thinking about a southern Baptist an Jew being close enough friends to to actually go into business together you know I it speaks a lot about about Truman. I think even even then but they went into business and you know when that business failed. Truman's mom was the KKK supporter or something they were there. These overcoming some family history overcoming civil rights legacy the same..
