The Top Ten

1 Donald Trump 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, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, ...read more.

People really need to chill. Yeah, he has his faults, but the sexist things he said do not make him a bad president. Plus, he didn't cause a war with North Korea and managed to have peaceful meetings with Kim Jong Un. Overall, he is doing pretty good, minus the trade agreement with Canada and Mexico that didn't do any good for anybody. - RogerMcBaloney

He was a bad president but he wasn't the worst. - B1ueNew

Hate to say it, but Obama is slightly overhated. Although I think he was a bad president still. - PackFan2005

Good person but not a good president - Randomator

He did not really like the USA at all.

3 Ronald Reagan 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

His tax and deregulation policies caused decades of inequality and stagnant wages, his foreign policy empowered murderous dictators and terrorists, he ignored the AIDS epidemic, and he made the US the most imprisoned country on Earth. It's not just quotes. - Y2K

I believe Ronald Reagan is the best president ever. Some of the hate he gets is just Democrats trying to downgrade Republicans. - 2storm

He was a monster - iliekpiez

Reagan is similar to Trump in many ways. Both actors and quite famous. Everyone hated Reagan for his statements like “trees cause more pollution than automobiles” and stuff like that. Quotes aside, he was a great president. The economy boomed, unemployment was very low, and he even survived being shot, and made it back to the Oval Office in two weeks time. He’s definitely overhated by some. - PackFan2005

4 George H.W. Bush George H.W. Bush George Herbert Walker Bush (June 12, 1924 - November 30, 2018) was an American politician who served as the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993. Prior to assuming the presidency, Bush served as the 43rd Vice President of the United States under Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989.

Also gets too much hate, but I thought he was a great successor to Ronald Reagan. I was fine with both Bushes, but this one is the better of the two. Still overhated to this day. - PackFan2005

He said he would reduce taxes.
He then raised taxes. - iliekpiez

5 Franklin D Roosevelt 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 ...read more.

You could say he was one of the most important reasons Hitler was stopped not to mention he got us out of the depression. Sure he had his flaws like deporting immigrant Jews back to Germany and not attacking concentration camps even though he knew some of the atrocities going on, but all in a he was a great president - 2storm

Could any other leader have gotten us through the Great Depression? Herbert Hoover failed, but Roosevelt succeeded. He calmly led us through the Depression and WWII, and succeeded. Some people say he was terrible, but I disagree with that. - PackFan2005

He's liked a lot, I don't know many people hate him - B1ueNew

How is he overhated - Nonpointed

6 Harry Truman Harry Truman Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, an American politician of the Democratic Party.

Truman's actions are justified. If he would've invaded inland many people of both sides of the war would've died. He cared about America First. A good president over all. - 2storm

He was a great president. - iliekpiez

I’m not really a fan of Truman, but he gets too much hate for the atomic bombs he dropped. However, he ended the war with Japan, and I’ll appreciate him for that. Still kind of overhated for that specific event. - PackFan2005

7 George W Bush George W Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

He doesn't he deserve some of that hate. He did everything in his power to make America successful. And on the most part he did. - 2storm

He deserves all the hate - iliekpiez

Awful, this idiot was definitely near the worst - B1ueNew

Geez, cut him some slack. It seems that every time there’s a Republican in office, everyone goes nuts and bashes the president. Guess what? Bush didn’t do 9/11. He wasn’t a bad president either. He combated Terror, which some presidents didn’t even try to do. - PackFan2005

8 Bill Clinton Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton (Born August 19th 1946) is an American politician who was the 42nd President of the United States. He previously served as governor of Arkansas.

Deserves the hate - DarkBoi-X

Good president, But man a bad person - B1ueNew

Nah, he is directly to blame for the Recession. - iliekpiez

Okay, hear me out. I don’t like him, but at least he was better than Obama. He gets some random hate, which makes him slightly overhated, but he deserves the hate for the Monica Lewinsky thing. He was a bad president, but not the worst. - PackFan2005

9 Richard Nixon Richard Nixon Richard Milhous Nixon was the 37th President of the United States from 1969 until his resignation in 1974, the only president to resign from office.

Extended war into Laos and Cambodia anyone? - iliekpiez

He was actually more honest and trustworthy than his contemporary, Lyndon Johnson, and a mere lightweight in comparison with Hillary Clinton.

He was the worst president ever. He was a warmonger. - iliekpiez

When people mention Nixon's name they think of Watergate. People avoid all the great things he did in his presidency. - 2storm
