Additionally, he acquired a reputation in Washington circles as an “anti-American demagogue.” (pg. 2) Overall, he was a very unlikely and surprising person for the U.S. to support especially considering his reputation and feelings about the United States. When President Bush was asked about the possibility of using force to restore democracy in Haiti after Aristide was forced out of the country his response was “I am disinclined to use American force.

On the evening of September 20, when he addressed Congress and the rest of the nation, he became a new President with a new purpose and a new relationship with the American people. Remember "the vision thing"? That was the criticism of his father, whose presidency seemed to have no overarching sense of direction.
