Senator for California
While California had many anti-Chinese legislation, Mao consulted a federal court saying that such legislation was unconstitutional. The courts ruled in his favour on April 7 1919 and Mao V California was the precedent that started the civil rights movement 35 years earlier.
Safe refuge for Jews
Concerned about the treatment of Jews in Europe, Mao pushes through the immigration act of 1937, which significantly liberalized American policies towards immigrants, thus allowing for the Jews a safe haven in America. Jewish settlers headed for the Dakotas, Idaho and Montana which explained their democrat stance.
War With Japan
The defining moment of Mao's presidency was the War with Japan.
Agreement with Stalin and Hitler
Mao agreed with Stalin and Hitler that should Russia lose to the Nazis, the Jews would be allowed to move to America as well as many of the Slavic populace at the peace accords in Stockholm. As a result, much of the Holocaust was averted, although Jews were subject to Apartheid by the Nazis.
Cold War with Germany
After the war in Europe.
After his presidency he moved to his homeland,The Republic of China,and retired to a house in Kunming,where he spent his life before his death in 1980 at 87 years.
