Ignore

If you do not know what I mean by this, ask me. But my definition is this: what presidents did something because of pressure on them from either congress or the press or even the american people.

I have two examples:

Lyndon Johnson on the Vietnam War and George H. W. Bush on breaking the read my lips pledge.

What do you think, which presidents did something not because they wanted too, but because they gave into pressure from those around them?

the birth of modern america & onward election Frederick Douglas becomes the 1st African American president of the united states when he wins election to the office in 1892 only 30 years after the height of slavery in the United States. He narrowly wins reelection in 1896 against William Jennings Bryan. Douglas runs again in 1900 and even indicated his interest in a 4th run in 1904 but Grover Cleveland wins the 1900 election.
