Top Ten U.S. Presidents with the Worst Foreign Policies

The Top Ten
1 George W Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician and businessman who was born in July 6, 1946. He served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. He is the eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

Invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, opened Guantanamo Bay and tortured convicts that never had a trial, and expanded the power of the president by an extremely large margin.

2 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, more.

Honestly this guys says some dumb stuff on Twitter but has amazing foreign policies. He managed to calm the tension with Korea, Russia, and China. When your president is friends with Putin, and Jung-Un, you know your in good hands

He's aware that Russia is trying to manipulate our nation and he's doing nothing and still saying that Putin is a friend, which he is not. Plus, he's a massive jerk to all of our allies.

While he hasn't been in office for a year yet, he's already piled up a disastrous reputation. He got the U.S. further involved in Syria after claiming the U.S. shouldn't be involved, he stepped up drone strikes which kill innocent civilians, he's supplied more aid to Saudi Arabia, and the lost, sadly, goes on.

He will Attack North Korea Iran and Venezuela

3 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. He had previously served as the 36th Vice President of the United States from 1953 to 1961, and prior to that as a U.S. Representative and also Senator more.

He lied about wanting to end the Vietnam war in order to gain votes. He actually expanded it, and didn't pursue efforts to end it until it was clear that victory would be impossible without expanding U.S. forces even further, which would've been politically impossible. He also committed treason when he interfered in the initial peace talks during the Johnson administration in order to have a better chance of being elected.

4 Lyndon B. Johnson Lyndon Baines Johnson, often referred to as LBJ, was an American politician who served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969.

"Domestically he was a fantastic president? " Clueless. The "Great Society," which continues to this day, has been an absolute disaster. Massive growth of the welfare state with huge deficit spending and insurmountable debt in attempt to support such naked socialism. Exponential growth in the federal bureaucracy with its inevitable assault on liberty. The destruction of the black nuclear family. Rampant inner-city poverty and crime. The reverse discrimination of Affirmative Action. The list goes on and on. Some 15 trillion in welfare spending later, everything that was supposed to be fixed is, predictably, exponentially worse.

He expanded the Vietnam war passed what Kennedy had ordered. While domestically he was a fantastic president, his foreign policies were his undoing.

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 supported violent dictatorships in Latin America, funded the contras, funded extremist groups in Afghanistan, etc.

6 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.

He invaded Iraq, which began an unfortunate family tradition. He also aided the Reagan administration in supporting dictatorships in Latin America, many of which committed genocide against its own citizens.

7 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

He continued Bush's policies of unnecessary American intervention in the Middle East, which has killed thousands of innocent civilians. He also had U.S. civilians overseas assassinated without a trial because of a possible, but not definite, link to terrorism.

8 James Polk James Knox Polk was the 11th president of the United States, serving from 1845 to 1849. He previously was Speaker of the House of Representatives and governor of Tennessee.

Polk desperately wanted to expand the country's boarders, by force if necessary. Therefore, he agitated Mexico until the country attacked, and Polk threw his hands up and declared that the U.S. would invade Mexico in the name of self defense.

9 Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909. As a leader of the Republican Party during this time, he became a driving force for the Progressive Era in the United States in the more.

Again, no. Roosevelt was a socialist nationalist; or, if you prefer, a national socialist. He believed that financial success was acceptable "only if a man applied it to the welfare of his brothers." He also promised to end private investment in stocks, and would have sought to limit such investments to only the government, using, of course, taxpayer money. He never became the socialist dictator his cousin Franklin nearly did, in part because he couldn't actually win a presidential election. One of the most un-American losers ever to occupy the Oval Office.

Like LBJ, he had a masterful domestic policy, but Teddy was a warmonger. He once wrote, "I should welcome almost any war, for I think this country needs one." Nothing spells patriotism and love for one's country than going to war over trivial things in order to boost soldiers' morale. Night at the Museum will never be the same again.

My teacher hates socialists it seems, but loves Teddy. what?

10 James Buchanan James Buchanan, Jr. was the 15th President of the United States, serving immediately prior to the American Civil War.
The Contenders
11 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 more.

Again, your knowledge is lacking. Communism is not "a form of anarchy." Anarchists are simply useful idiots, used to set the stage for communist revolution, and routinely eliminated afterword. EVERY communist regime - Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Minh, East Germany, Fidel, the North Korean "Kim" dynasty, et al - has been a brutal dictatorship of either one or a handful. Hitler was a fascistic Marxist nationalist. As to Cuba: Are you not familiar with the Monroe Doctrine? It was long ago expanded to address the threat of communism in America's geopolitical neighborhood. It's sane policy.

Kennedy's policy toward Cuba was anti-communist, as it should have been. The botched Bay of Pigs invasion was an attempt first to overthrow the Castro regime to stop communist expansion in the hemisphere, and next to free the Cuban people from the murderous communist regime they've now suffered nearly sixty years. The Cuban Missle Crisis was the inevitable response to Nikita Khrushchev placing offensive nuclear missiles 90 from the U.S., thinking he was calling Kennedy's bluff. But it was Khrushchev that blinked. Your grasp of history leaves much to be desired.

He invaded Cuba, and suddenly got angry when the country began to build a nuclear stockpile in order to deter another invasion. If the Kennedy administration would have recognized Cuba's sovereignty, and not have authorized the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban missile crisis would have probably never have happened.

12 John Tyler John Tyler was the tenth President of the United States. He was also, briefly, the tenth Vice President, elected to that office on the 1840 Whig ticket with William Henry Harrison.
13 Harry Truman Harry S. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States, an American politician of the Democratic Party.
