Top 10 Most Divisive Politicians of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Donald J. Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968... read more

A highly polarizing figure already, the Donald became the unexpected 45th president, beating longtime political figurehead, Hilary Clinton.
Infamous for his unfiltered statements, twitter usage, and tendency to call out others by name, Mr. Trump is definitely not an average president. However, it’s his often unsavory statements that have gotten him labeled a racist by some and criminal by others that land him here.

Here are the three most divisive politicians in my opinion, politician #1, Donald Trump, he did pretty good at some stuff, like controlling the job forces, but his former Twitter is... interesting.

2 Jair Bolsonaro Jair Messias Bolsonaro (born 21 March 1955) is a Brazilian politician and retired military officer who served as the 38th president of Brazil from 1 January 2019 until 31 December 2022. He was elected in 2018 as a member of the conservative Social Liberal Party before severing ties with it.
3 Justin Trudeau Justin Pierre James Trudeau PC MP (born on Christmas Day, December 25, 1971) is a Canadian politician who is the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada (assumed office November 4, 2015). He is the leader of the Liberal Party and the second-youngest Canadian prime minister after Joe Clark. His father, Pierre... read more

It is hard to comprehend just how Justin Trudeau has divided Canadians. He never misses an opportunity to slander someone as a racist, Nazi supporter, misogynist, or extremist. This comes from the person who can't remember how many times he's worn blackface and invited a 98-year-old Ukrainian Nazi into the Canadian House of Commons and honored him with a standing ovation.

He called Leslyn Lewis a racist and Melissa Lantsman a Nazi supporter. He called truckers heroes in the early days of the pandemic only to then label them as racist, misogynist, and extremists during the trucker convoy protests in Ottawa.

He then invoked the modern-day version of the War Measures Act to crush the protesters while never engaging them in dialogue. He also forced banks to freeze their bank accounts and jailed many of them without charges.

Justin Trudeau is a lying hypocrite and an arrogant narcissist who is corrupt to the core and morally bankrupt, as well as completely incompetent with a track record of catastrophic failure. As we approach 2024, it's time for a change.

Regan was the Trump of the 80s. Difference is, there was no social media back then. So, people were able to say whether they liked or loathed him more peacefully.

Extremely divisive. She got England out of the economic problem, yet ruined the livelihoods the northern miners. She won the Falklands war, yet murdered many in the process. She was the first female prime minister, yet did nothing to help women's rights. Talk about divisive!

The Iron Lady was a no nonsense figure in British politics. She was known for her refusal to work on compromise, leading to outright resentment of her from the Labour Party.
