His political career started with the election as a judge in Jackson County Court in 1922. During the War World Two he headed Senate’s investing committee, checking the corruption and waste.
In 1944 Truman was asked to become a Vice President of Franklin Roosevelt instead Henry Wallace.
However, such a policy is quite seemingly contradictory.
Is it really possible to not instigate conflict when you’re aiding one side and not the other?
In his State of the Union Address, President Truman told Congress that that, “Every segment of our population, and every individual, has a right to expect from his government a fair deal.” The “Fair Deal” set of social reforms Truman spoke of continued and built on the New Deal progressivism of President Franklin Roosevelt and would represent the last major attempt by the Executive Branch to create new federal social programs until President Lyndon Johnson proposed his Great Society program in 1964.
Opposed by the “conservative coalition” that controlled Congress from 1939 to 1963, only a handful of Truman’s Fair Deal initiatives actually became law.
The Fair Deal was an extensive list of proposals for social reform legislation suggested by U. The term has since come to be used to describe the overall domestic policy agenda of Truman’s presidency, from 1945 to 1953.

After returning from the war Harry Truman joined the Democratic Party.
Since then he became an active participant of the local politics.
