Grant and Trump are similar: "He Fights"


Grant was not everyone's favorite commander during the Civil War.  In fact, President Lincoln was his only major supporter.  The reason for that was, unlike McLellan, the Union Army's Commander-in-Chief who was much adored by his troops because he never put them in harm's way, Grant was a dogged fighter.

Even though he won the battle [Shiloh], Grant came under severe fire for the number of casualties at Shiloh and was moved to a support role. Lincoln still thought highly of him, though. “I can't spare this man; he fights,” was the president’s assessment.
