Roosevelt Republican

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This official portrait of Theodore Roosevelt was painted by John Singer Sargent.

Roosevelt Republican is a term used in discussions about politics of the United States to describe people with beliefs reminiscent of American President Theodore Roosevelt, a politician who spent much of his career as a Republican. Roosevelt implemented a wide variety of various ideas during his tenure as President from September 14, 1901 to March 4, 1909.

In terms of specific policies, being a "Roosevelt Republican" has been described as supporting the conservation movement and having sympathies for environmentalist measures aimed at protecting natural landscapes. This is said to entail an emphasis on hunting and fishing along with wildlife tourism under the backdrop of government ownership of certain lands, with a more limited room for more invasive uses of public areas such as mining.[1]

Individuals who've self-identified as such include Ryan Zinke,[1] a Montana politician and U.S. Navy veteran who became the 52nd U.S. Secretary of Interior on March 1, 2017.[2]
