Top 10 Most Corrupt U.S. PresidentsThe question of who are the most corrupt U.S. Presidents opens up a fascinating dialogue about the intertwining of political power and personal ethics. It allows us to explore the gray area between leadership and manipulation, between serving the nation and serving oneself.
This isn't about clear-cut villainy; this is about shades of grey and questionable decisions. It's about understanding that power can sometimes lead even the best of us astray.
In this context, corruption is a multifaceted concept that encompasses a wide range of questionable actions and behaviors. It could be financial graft, political manipulation, abuse of power, or even actions that undermined the values and principles the U.S. holds dear.
The Kremlin's Kandidate has been indicted four times. In his four-year rule, he could never get any law agency to "find anything you can against Joe Biden." Not to mention his attempts to invalidate a free and fair election. But that's just according to the law. 75 million American patriots know for a fact that storming the US Capitol in order to disrupt or somehow change a democratically elected government is justified if their Kandidate loses.
Most morally corrupt of all. He didn't even pretend to be honest or moral when he was campaigning. He showed his true colors at the beginning. Yet, he became President of our country. What does that say about the people who voted for him? I guess those storming the US Capitol answered that!
He was close friends with Epstein. He had to know there were underage girls during his trips with him. The whole government is corrupt, no matter what president.
Money from programs he initiated went to ISIS via Saudi Arabia, weapons purchased by American taxpayers from programs he initiated were sent to ISIS via Eastern Europe. At a time when ISIS was slaughtering & raping anybody who wasn't them, he & his government knowingly initiated programs to assist them, all because they wanted to be friendly to Saudi Arabia & Turkey, which countless government reports show have been allied to this terrorist network. He put his fingers deep into this attack on the civilized world. It makes the corruption in Chicago of rigged elections pale in comparison.
Obama 3.0. You have to hand it to him. He's the first to get a third term. Gets to sit in his basement, in his sweatpants, and pull the strings of crooked Joe. He created tremendous division within America, and by the time his second term approached, he never failed to play the race card. His foreign policy was a failed warmongering military complex advancing strategy, and his favorite play was drone striking everything and anything.
Biden has reached to a new low. His corruption has gotten more and more blatantly obvious. He gets caught with a tape of bombing Ukraine. Magically deflects another major story that should be taken seriously, and instead turns that around to go after Trump once again. For no legitimate reason other than to just set up his opponent of negative press. Abuse of Power!
What an absolute disaster this guy has been. Our service members die during a hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan where they were only given 18 days to exit, leaving billions in military hardware to our enemies. Failed economic and energy policies. Rampant inflation. Emptied our strategic oil reserves with no plan to refill them just so he'd artificially keep gas prices 'low'. Corrupt business deals overseas with his son. Hiding classified docs that he himself called 'irresponsible' when Trump had some declassified docs found in Florida.
A fool who lined his family's wealth following his dad's efforts as the chief spy of the CIA.
Too much into globalism and not American sovereignty. So sorry I ever voted for him.
Number 1 worst human being in the world. Number 1 mistake.
Beginning with their allegiance to China's spy ring that facilitated nuclear secrets and embedded Chinese spies in every level of corporate and government agencies and Democrat senator offices.
Though he was found to be a promiscuous President, he was not found guilty of any financial mishandling. He was one of the greatest Presidents in terms of financial soundness, as he was the first to balance the national debt through bipartisan cooperation. Though promiscuous, he was only found guilty and impeached for lying to a Congressional Committee about inappropriate acts. By most Americans' counts, he profited from a global warming scandal.
Juanita Brodrick accused him of rape while he was serving as Arkansas governor on a business trip. He was accused of sexually harassing many women, and his wife established the "bimbo eruption task force" to pay off and intimidate these women when they dared speak during his 1992 campaign for president.
He makes the list for initiating a new level of corrupt abuse of governmental agencies that those after him have since legitimized & exported to other countries.
Only found incompetent during the Watergate Scandal, which was an election spy operation that utilized government agencies which are in use today by current presidents.
Really, the gold standard of corruption in office. Until Trump. In retrospect, Nixon was merely Trump Lite.
Reagan was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands, personally extended and expanded the AIDS epidemic, and committed treason many times, the worst being arming Iran and replacing democratically elected governments with criminals all over the planet. He gets my vote.
More of a figurehead than a leader, Reagan's time in office was marked by repeated scandals, a corrupt Attorney General in Edwin Meese, and a domineering wife who based her decisions on US policy on the soothsaying of mediums.
He made us proud to be Americans.
He lied about Vietnam war involvement in the beginning to justify US involvement and had ties to companies that profited from construction work on military bases in-country.
He pushed America into the Vietnam war and profited from the "War Machine," like many Presidents after him, killing almost millions of American and other national men and women during the conflict.
This guy was the architect of the JFK assassination just so he could become president and pander to the military-industrial complex by vastly increasing the American presence in Vietnam. He was one of the least trustworthy people (after Trump) to ever sit in the Oval office.
He was the first architect of the Conspiracy of the New World Order (NWO) and allegedly made billions, if not trillions, on arms deals and oil companies that he owned.
A fool played by neocon warmongers at the expense of Americans' rights and freedoms.
He got away with the Teapot Dome scandal, but others went to prison.
He was the swamp - selling business connections to enrich himself.
The corruption is more on the part of Edith Wilson for acting as President by obfuscating the fact that Woodrow Wilson was incapacitated by a stroke, even to his close aides. This effectively denied Vice President Tom Marshall from becoming the president, as is the constitutional protocol. Woodrow's complicity stretches to his hiding of his health issues, including a number of strokes prior to his presidency.
The worst political traitor to American principles of all time due to his support for the Federal Reserve and the wealthiest individuals.
His wife pretty much ran the country, and his buying into the League of Nations really hurt the country.
A Democrat who worked to sabotage Lincoln's Reconstruction of the South and integration of Black Freedmen into American society. Opposed the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments ending slavery, extending citizenship, and the vote to black freedmen in the south. Looked the other way when early KKK terrorists murdered black and white Republicans until Grant surged troops into the South to stop it.
Messed up African American rights for years to come. One of the main factors for segregation.
Sinks to #2 after Trump, who will easily be #1 as most corrupt.
Slaughtered Native American men, women, and children without remorse.
Trail of Tears.
First gay president who was a feckless leader.
This was a nice man, but he was not presidential in the least. He self-describes how he was just a family man and a good Christian.
An idiot who should never have been President. Double-digit inflation and high unemployment displayed his total incompetence as a leader.
Not really corrupt by comparison to most, it may be that his total incompetence is being confused with corruption. He was simply unable to do the job.
He's second, but incredibly better than number 1.
Before Biden's term, this administration was historically seen as the most corrupt of all.
He was a supporter and president in charge of the Slave Trade. Not only did the Slave Trade hurt the Africans, but it also hurt the churches.
