POTUS, Donald Trump Rated Worst US President ever.
In a recent President’s Day poll of political scientists from Boise State University, that rated all U.S presidents till date, President Trump was ranked as the worst U.S president in history.
The experts were requested to rank all 44 of the presidents from George Washington to Donald Trump, based on their overall performance while in office.
The top four presidents were Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin Roosevelt, and Teddy Roosevelt. The biggest declines were for Bill Clinton, who slipped eight spots to No. 13, and Andrew Jackson, who dropped from No. 9 to 15. Trump came last with a score of 12.34, with Obama making it to the top 10.
The authors say Trump has, at least, the most room for improvement when another survey is taken.
On this day in 1848, just as he stands up from his desk in the House of Representatives to defend his no vote on a bill, former President John Quincy Adams suddenly collapses from a cerebral hemorrhage. House members carried him to a bed in the Speaker of the House’s private chambers and immediately summoned his wife Louisa. By the time she arrived, he was not able to recognize her. His last words supposedly were, This is the end of earth, but I am content.
Born on July 11, 1767, in Braintree (later renamed Quincy), Massachusetts, Adams was the son of the second U.S. president, John Adams. He inherited his father’s passion for politics, accompanied his father on diplomatic missions from the time he was 14 and, once grown, entered the legal profession. As a young man, he served as minister to a variety of countries including Prussia, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia and England. In 1803, he began his first term in the Senate and later helped negotiate the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. From 1817 to 1824, he served President James Monroe as secretary of state.
In 1824, Adams ran against Andrew Jackson for the presidency. A tie put the deciding vote in the House of Representatives, and Adams emerged victorious. He served only one fairly uneventful term–his greatest contributions to American politics occurred before and after his term as president. In fact, in his memoirs, he admitted to preferring legislative duties to being president and that he considered his time in the White House the four most miserable years of his life.
Rather than retire from politics after his term ended in 1829, Adams decided to run for a seat in the House of Representatives and he remained a formidable figure in Congress until his death in 1848. He chaired congressional committees on the economy, Indian affairs and foreign relations, and even found time to argue the controversial Amistad slave ship case in the Supreme Court. His eloquent argument for returning the ship’s illegally transported cargo of slaves to Africa cemented his reputation as a dedicated abolitionist. #onthisday#johnquincyadams#stroke#death#uspresident 🇺🇸
