1 Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, bolstering the federal government, and modernizing the U.S. economy.
He married Mary Todd and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator. He lost the election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for President in 1860.
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.
He was very honest. Ended slavery too!
To be honest, I'm a big fan of Thomas Jefferson but to me I've always like Abraham Lincoln the best and therefore HONEST Abe people
2 Jimmy Carter
James Earl "Jimmy" Carter, Jr. (born October 1, 1924) is an American politician and author who served as the 39th President of the United States from 1977 to 1981. In 2002, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with the Carter Center.
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.
3 George Washington
George Washington (February 22, 1732– December 14, 1799) was an American military officer, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Appointed by the Continental Congress as commander of the Continental Army, Washington led the Patriot forces to victory in the American Revolutionary War and served as the president of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which created the Constitution of the United States and the American federal government. Washington has been called the "Father of the Nation" for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the country.
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.
4 Barack Obama
Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He was the first African-American president of the United States.
A member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and as an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.
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!
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!
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.
5 Ronald Reagan
Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004) was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader until his death in 2004
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.
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.
6 Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and served as the 3rd President of the United States from 1801-1809. He was born on April 13, 1743, and died on July 4, 1826, on the same day 2nd United States President John Adams died.
An extremely intelligent man way ahead of his time.Wrote most of US constitution in a tavern.
7 John F. Kennedy
John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29th, 1917 - November 22, 1963) commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the establishment of the Peace Corps, developments in the Space Race, the building of the Berlin Wall, the Trade Expansion Act to lower tariffs, the Civil Rights Movement, the "New Frontier" domestic program, and abolition of the federal death penalty in the District of Columbia all took place during his presidency.
JFK did not believe in secret societies running the world and he was the last non-puppet president. In comparison, he was pretty honest.
A good man who was felled too early,Not perfect in every ones's eyes but very underrated.
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
8 John Quincy Adams
John Quincy Adams (July 11, 1767 – February 23, 1848) was an American statesman who served as the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829 at the peak of a political career during which he served in various capacities as diplomat, United States Senator, United States Secretary of State, and U.S. Representative from Massachusetts.
9 Dwight Eisenhower
Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower was an American politician and general who served as the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He was a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.
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.
War hero! Honest, honorable man.
10 Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, commonly known as FDR, was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd President of the United States from 1933 to 1945. A Democrat, he won a record four presidential elections and dominated his party for many years as a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and total war.
Amazing former President. Guided us through the war & back to prosperity.
Thanks for helping people during the Great Depression.
11 Grover Cleveland
Stephen Grover Cleveland was an American politician and lawyer who was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States, the only president in American history to serve two non-consecutive terms in office.
He focused his presidency on keeping government honest.
12 Andrew Jackson
Andrew Jackson was an American statesman who served as the seventh President of the United States from 1829 to 1837 . He was born near the end of the colonial era, somewhere near the then-unmarked border between North and South Carolina, into a recently immigrated Scots-Irish farming family of relatively modest means.
13 John Adams
John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts, United States. Adams served as the president of the United States from March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 90.
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
14 Harry S Truman
Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, an American politician of the Democratic Party.
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
Truman was honest, almost to a fault. He could have made money, after he left office, working for corporations but he insisted that the Office of the President wasn't for sale.
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.
A good President underrated a very selfless man of good moral integrity.
Lived well into his 90's, Never asked for much in life.
15 Donald Trump
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States.

He owned the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants from 1996 to 2015, and has lent the use of his ...read more.
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.
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.
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!
I hear these democrats screaming "He is a liar! ", well, can anyone tell me what big lies has he said? Seriously! I'd like to know! Please don't respond with idiotic answers like "watch the news! He lies all the time! ". I really want to know!

A very underrated President whom also helped with drawing up our constitution.
Not to mention his wife who was fearless for her country against the British.
Madison should be much higher than 19. No scandals, almost universally respected by his peers.
23 Bill Clinton
