Top Ten Most Honest U.S. Presidents
He was a great man. That is all I have to say. Thanks for coming and have an awesome day!
He had his faults, but he is in my opinion the most honest.
Judging by his nickname "Honest Abe"
He was very honest. Ended slavery too!
Carter was not a careless and heartless president. He was forgiving despite delivering weak leadership. The Oil and Fuel Scarcity may have gave him a headache in office because of Nixon's policies. But he was honest and managed to show compassion even after losing greatly against Reagan. He will be handed down as the most honest president in the late 70s.
He should be number 1. I feel like his mediocre presidency is getting in the way of people seeing the stellar character of this man. His charity is near ridding the world of guinea worm from the world (an aweful, painful water born parasite). Say what you will about his time in office, but this mans morality, and honesty cannot be questioned.
This man was told by most of his advisors he could win the election if he started a war with Iran. He said he would never do that as it's not worth the cost in money and lives.
His honesty and integrity probably cost him the election of 1980. Sometimes, we would rather not know the truth and take the easy way out.
George perhaps wasn't as honest as folks think of him given his talent for being a spy master in the Revolution, but He undoubtedly had this country's best interest at heart which is why he was first in the hearts of his country men.
An exceptional leader with strong moral character that earned the respect of a divided set of colonies and drove the formation of a great democracy and nation.
Would love to know what he did for the economy besides stagnation it for 8yrs. What did he do for the Black's and Hispanics? He even hurt the countries middle class, with additional red tape by preventing small business growth or even starting! He was no and still is a fake to all Americans!
Obama was far more educated, aware, compassionate and forward thinking than many of the Republican presidents, especially reagan and trump. There is no comparison between him and the abominable lies that spewed forth from those two morons, on a conistent, basis!
Barack Obama is our only African leader in the U.S he didn't attack the rebels against France he is a dictator for life and for all! He is only 54 years old and said we will protect Africa FOR MILLIONS!
Inexperienced but a Great president. Lead USA at a very difficult time after the great depression. Was honest, but not close to Jimmy carter's altruism and virtue of bold honesty.
An unadulterated liar. cared only for the wealthy and his trickle down economics was the biggest lie we ever had to face. This guys a moron. A hateful, disgusting moron.
He said he would improve the economy- he did. He said that the people don't serve the government- he made sure to serve them instead. He did what he said; following through is huge in politics.
A great president, with a sense of humor. One of the top 5 greatest presidents.
Reagan was also one of the best
JFK did not believe in secret societies running the world and he was the last non-puppet president. In comparison, he was pretty honest.
The man who prevented WW3. He wanted to give back national currency back to people
Every president since has been a criminal in one way or another
He reveals againts illuminatis, and that's the reason why he gets killed
Was horrified with the new America that developed after WW II. He was like a grandfather who was disappointed in the turn from love in each other. A hard man but said it as it was.
Not my party and didn't like everything Ike did, but when he said something you knew right where he stood.
Definitely one of the best, should be on the same level as Lincoln and Washington.
He focused his presidency on keeping government honest.
how is he not number 1
Yes, Trump is an honest person and speaks his mind. But it doesn't help given that he is a racist and an idiot to put it lightly.
And he also gave very big lies, like saying that COVID wasn't a big deal, and his utter ridiculousness and childness when he lost the election, and tried to blame voter fraud.
Is this a joke? Every word out of his mouth is a lie. Every single thing this ass wipe has ever uttered. According to him, with numbers soaring...we have turned the corner regarding the corona virus. What a piece of garbage!
What is interesting is, Trump appears to be among the most decent and honest of the modern Presidents. When you compare him to Kennedy, LBJ, FDR, Wilson, Eisenhower, Hoover, Bush 41, Bush 43, Clinton, Obama, Carter he stands head and shoulders above them in terms of fidelity to this nation and its founding.
Trump has kept or tried to keep (amid ridiculously strong opposition) the core impetus of his promises. He's an honest guy who speaks whatever is on his mind as he knows of it.
Faced adversity despite unpopular opinions. when he spoke you knew he was speaking from the heart not DC
Honest did what he did for the good of the country
John Adams was a moral and upright man who dealt with a lying press that hated him as much as they hate Trump today. Adams was more honest than they all gave them credit for. He was likely one of our most honest presidents ever.
Other than Washington and Lincoln, the one who selflessly worked for the nation's liberty and unity
Harry S. Truman should be in the Top 3 along side with Lincoln and Carter. Why is he #16? Truman was one of the most honest presidents in U.S. History. Truman at the time he was running for judge of Missouri, the Political boss at that time "Tom Prendergast" said "politics is a game of friends" and Truman responded "does that mean I'm suppose to let your friends steal $10,000?!.' Prendergast then said "is that what all this yelling is about." Truman said "Tom I don't care if it's 10,000 or 10,0000 I told you when I agreed to run I wasn't going to stand for any monkey business." Prendergast says "You will do what I tell you." Truman tells Tom "No sir, I don't work for you I work for the people of this county." Truman cared about the farmers and was quite upset about having taking the stolen money which his idea was fundraising it not stealing it. When he was senator of Missouri he called out other politicians for being crooks and he said it himself "you can't get rich in politics ...more
He left office with nothing but his army pension, turned down lucrative offers to capitalise on his former office and returned to a humble life back in Missouri. He was also given no provisions for secretaries or aides after he left office. Truman should really rank at the top of this list.
He refused to sell the White House, calming it's not mine to sell! Refused to profit from being POTUS! Wrote his wife (BESS) over 1300 letters in his own handwriting. Paid postage out of own pocket,(NOT WHITE HOUSE).
A great man. A lesser man could not have accomplished what he had to endure.
Told it like it is. Never tried to sugar-coat anything. Honestly, most underrated president of all time.
Well, I guess he is a bit honest
He is honest too
He spoke softly and carried a big stick.
Madison should be much higher than 19. No scandals, almost universally respected by his peers.
Grant was an every man's war dog. Interestingly his reputation was far worse than the man himself. Many of the habits attributed to him were entirely made up. And let's face it, he won the Civil War for lying Lincoln. Even if I agreed with Lincoln's motives, Honest Abe wasn't so honest.
How is Ulysses S. Grant not in the top tens? He was the one who won the Civil War
Best most intelligent and compassionate president we ever had!
