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!
No one really knows what Lincoln believed in his heart but as a stateman, a speaker and negotiator he was brilliant.
He had his faults, but he is in my opinion the most honest.
He was dealt a poor hand between the poor economy of the post-Vietnam era and the horrible status of the US in the world. He tried to avoid running up the debt. His integrity was his greatest asset.
Kind of a moron from a political standpoint and a horrible economic and business minded president. I do think he was honest to a fault.
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.
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.
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!
My favorite quote has got to be 'I notice that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.' So thankful he didn't die in office.
Brilliant stateman, he's on par with Lincoln for how he could get people to work together. As far as honest. I think he always meant well but was willing to bend the rules.
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.
An extremely intelligent man way ahead of his time.Wrote most of US constitution in a tavern.
Honest hard worker - especially for a nepo baby. Sadly got the job in murky circumstances which doomed him.
He focused his presidency on keeping government honest.
JFK did not believe in secret societies running the world and he was the last non-puppet president. In comparison, he was pretty honest.
Who doesn't love JFK if he had lived America would be a much better place . He took a HUGE stand against communism!
A good man who was felled too early,Not perfect in every ones's eyes but very underrated.
Amazing former President. Guided us through the war & back to prosperity.
Thanks for helping people during the Great Depression.
Ike had some issues in terms of thinking too much like a soldier (should never ever have gotten involved in Iran), but at least was relatively honest.
Dwight seemed to be very upfront honest. He came a a different era. You where blunt and honest. His heart knew he truth I think but when your fighting most of your life to save your country I think is can make you look the other way at times for a greater good.
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.
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
A straight shooter. Had limitations given that it was the late 1940s / early 1950s - but I think he helped set the stage for later progressive movement.
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 unless you're a crook." He left office with a 32% approval rating because he made not the most popular decisions, but the right ones. He wanted to establish civil rights legislation because he didn't like the injustice but Republican Congress obstructed it. He won an election everyone thought he would lose to Dewy and he won in spite of the critics calling him a wild accident of history. He was upright and his values were never questioned.
Trump is not part of the deep state or the establishment. This is why the dems, rinos, corporate elites and the deep state hate him. Surprisingly he has not already been disappeared. Considering how he's been treated by media, the politicized doj, fbi, cia, military and the white house it's also surprising he's not in jail for something.
If trump wins in 2024 you might see a massive blood bath in upper level staffing in many of the government agencies and rightly so. Pandemic has opened many eyes to the extent of the staggering left wing politicization of so many government departments over many years. America can't continue to keep going so crazy left wing or the country will be lost to socialism. The tremendous influence of the military industrial complex must also be brought back under control to reduce the endless unnecessary wars. The western world needs America. America must clean up their education system, destroy hollywood, stop listening to corrupt corporate/government narrative legacy media and clean up all of their corrupted government institutions. Maybe trump the man to get the clean up started before it's too late. Look at the damage Canadas douche bag prime minister has done.
Another president who had limitations, especially in terms of women and race, but moved overtly and powerfully in the directions he could.
He spoke softly and carried a big stick.
Faced adversity despite unpopular opinions. when he spoke you knew he was speaking from the heart not DC
Told it like it is. Never tried to sugar-coat anything. Honestly, most underrated president of all time.
He is honest too
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.
Best most intelligent and compassionate president we ever had!
Smart clever left the country after 8 years in the best economical shape in modern times.Slick Willie.
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
