Top Ten People In American History That Should Not Be Hated

The Top Ten

1 George Washington George Washington was the first President of the United States, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

He is the reason we are here today

We need more presidents like him

How could anyone hate one of the best U.S Presidents of all time? - RiverClanRocks

He's a better president than Obama, that's for sure. - Minecraftcrazy530

2 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis.

This list doesn't make any sense. By reading the name, I inferred that you meant that you would be listing people who are normally hated, but do not deserve all of the hate. To put it into simpler terms, "Underrated." But, you just listed a bunch of people that Americans love, which makes no sense, because there are tons of lists about the best people of all time, and the best Americans of all time. This is just a copy of those lists. - Alpha101

He was also an Honest president

You should like him because he freed slaves

Of course, he kills vampires

3 Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin was an American polymath and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.
4 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Why anyone would hate this man is beyond me. He was hands down the best civil rights leader in American history--and a peaceful one at that, he was an extremely well educated man, and even a great pastor! When you look at his life and see all the positive things he has done it is hard to think that people could hate him.
But alas there will always be bigotry and hate among men. Simply because people who are like MLK are outspoken and fight for what is right even when others were angry about it.
Very admirable very courageous.

5 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, more.

We don't know the whole story. Link with the Maffia, scandal with Marilyn Monroe... Someone killed him for a reason we will never know. Maybe he was not a saint after all.

JFK saved the world. He stopped many nuke operations and peacefully negotiated with the USSR.

6 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

Democrats continue to pretend that the president can and should be Santa Claus, spending other people's money like there is no tomorrow. Reagan showed the president can and should be a leader.

Actually, I will say this is accurate, even though I am a Democrat. Reagan's policies were God awful, and we still haven't fully recovered, but he was a very likable person.

Come on, one of the worst on political matters. Neo-liberalism at his worst. Because of his political views he created together with British prime minister Margaret Tatcher a disaster that was felt many years after ( stock exchange scandals in the 21st century, corruption on high levels... ). Doesn't belong here ' cause we still feel his wrong policies now and we are still recovering by paying the price.

Reagan was the Greatest president. He did wonders for this country.

7 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.

8 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.

All the people who voted for Trump will soon realize how fortunate we were to have President Barack Obama leading our nation. He served our country with respect and dignity. He truly wanted to improve the human condition for everyone in our country. The country is in much better shape than it was when he took office and he left office with a high approval rating. He would've been able to improve upon much more if not for the Republican opposition he faced over the past eight years. Trump only cares about serving himself and his rich buddies, not us. Our taxes won't go down. Our cost of living will go up because the tariffs imposed on the auto industry and others will be passed on to the consumers. Trump is a delusional liar who lacks the knowledge, experience and judgement necessary to do his job. He is a threat to our democracy and national security. He has disgraced our nation through his actions and words. History will show that Barack Obama did his job well and that Trump failed ...more

Why do people hate him? It is very hard to be elected a president yet alone being black.

It's very hard to be elected president and he was the first black president.

He is responsible for the decline of America, both MORALLY and FINANCIALLY!

Why is this guy so hated? He did a 2 hour inaugural speech in the rain without a coat to prove that he was a great president regardless of his old age. This shows that he cared for americans. - DogeFan132

He is hated because of the Watergate scandal but nevertheless he's the one who did make an end to the Vietnam war that started ( not many people knows about it ) with the overrated J.F. Kennedy.

You'll be a nice man when you stop listening to Limbaugh and Hannity. Smarter, too.
