This evil man should be impeached as soon as possible. He is a huge disgrace to America and the world. He only wants to give benefits to rich conservative white men and wants everybody else to suffer. He's so rude to others and everything he's done so far in his awful presidency is so bad. I don't care what any of you say, if you roast me, I won't listen. Impeach him now.

Giving people more jobs is the only good thing that Trump has done so far. - PerfectImpulseX

I don't hate Trump or anything but he definitely is controversial. You have these republicans saying "Oh yes, Donald Trump should withdraw from the Paris Agreement" and these liberals saying "No! Trump is going to make Earth look like crap! ". How much support and backlash does he get on each of his actions? - CobaltCards

Like the other person said, his approval rating was pretty low when he started, but it always was. I'm not going to throw in a bunch of evidence to support my conspiracy and make a million character essay, but the polls were definitely controversial. - Zakattack2

He has certainly said some things that have left people completely mixed on him. I think it's very agreeable however, that he isn't the worst or the best. - isaaonrtdmtr

He also dueled with other people over 50 times - ikerevievs

I heard he's a very tempered man and that's what caused him to be involved in duels. - Kevinsidis

The Indian Removal Act is better than Trump?

Are you kidding me? - DCfnaf

5 Bill Clinton Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States. He previously served as governor of Arkansas.

6 Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson Andrew Johnson was the 17th President of the United States, serving from 1865 to 1869. Johnson became president as he was vice president at the time of the assassination of [Abraham Lincoln].

This man is the most controversist president in the USA

7 Warren G. Harding Warren G. Harding Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death in 1923.
8 George W. Bush George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

George W. Bush leads when control counter attack to the heart of terror and safe the major towers. In memory the rebuild and upgrades were even larger than anyone could imagine. Hopes lives with a President this way. - iliescu

I hate gearge w bush he did terrible in office how can he not be number one

9 James Buchanan James Buchanan James Buchanan, Jr. was the 15th President of the United States, serving immediately prior to the American Civil War.
10 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt Romney.

He is going to look like a total chump after Donald Trump is done. Obama's eight years of "new normal" for the economy is being destroyed by the growth under Trump in just the last two. And that is just economics. If you run down the list of other areas under the POTUS' watch, Obama is going to look like a fool. Not to lefties of course, but to anyone willing to step back and think about it.

When history fairly scrutinizes Obama's record, this country and the world will see him as he truly was; a master of deception, a charlatan and a first class "used car salesman".

Well, I won't deny how people perceive him is polarizing. On the bright side, at least his approval rating is pretty good. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Approval rating is fake. They don't even ask the whole population - 2storm

Why you people against Obama? Osama died yes but it wasn't his fault. Osama crashed planes and almost destroyed the US Planes. You people hate him because he's black. I just know it
