Because both the Executive and Legislative branch had a majority of Republicans, it made it easier for him to pass policies:
Pure Food and Drug Act:Banned food that was labeled falsely/impurely that is sold, shipped, or bought.
Meat Inspection Act of 1906:passed after the public was angry at companies who abused meat packaging
Treaty of Portsmouth: helped meidacte the Russo-Japanese War (won a Noble Prize)
He was able to pass many policies, but one fault is that he exercised too much power
ex: He tried to change the rules of Football.
Because he had the advantage of not having a divided government, he was able to pass many policies & therefore have a strong role as Chief Legislator.
