Best World Leaders


The Top Ten

1 Barack Obama Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II is 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 Romney.

He was such a blessed interlude between the idiocy and criminality of the Bush administration and the absolute schizophrenic mood swing chaos that has been Trump so far. "No Drama Obama" may have been low-key, but he served this country with intelligence, decency, dignity, wit, and no little diplomatic skill. He represented our nation so well in the world that he was consistently voted the most powerful world leader on lists in which Trump could not buy inclusion. His elegance, sense of propriety, knowledge of Constitutional law, and gift for communication are sorely missed.

He was diplomatic, measured, intelligent and articulate with compassion and a heart. Who could have foreseen that his successor would be such an incompetent, intellectually bereft, thins skinned, moronic infant!

He inspired many in good ways and bad. He inspired people to be and do better, but he also inspired racists to be bold and they quickly were joined by others and helped to derail his agenda.

Best leader forever

2 Vladimir Putin Vladimir Putin Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has been the President of Russia since 7 May 2012, succeeding Dmitry Medvedev.

Best world leader? Just because he said " no " to the US doesn't mean that he is the best. He is known to be a corrupt ( like all politicians by the way ) person.

He is the best because he can outsmart dumb Obama and he's cool because he likes trump

I'm american and I think he's a great leader and the US needs to really be allies and we need to agree.

4 George Washington 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.

Guys this man is the foundation of the most OP country right now, USA. He defeated the British when he was outnumbered. He is one of the best strategists in the world

5 Isaac Newton Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution.

He was the best british prime minister, he even fought against the French kings. The best strategist, he conquered Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Africa, Belize and almost won against the Thai and Germans.


6 Mustafa Kemal Ataturk Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Of course he! He has to be in #1st!

The best leader, commender, founder in the history!

Ataturk was a genius. He gave turkey independence, power and the ability to move forward. Incredible man he is. - 12cc

Atatürk is best example on the claim that legends never die. This adopter of 7 children, with his unique character and eternal spirit, who kept his inner child alive until his last breath- deserves the #1 spot. He's the only one on this list who made another variety of an entire alphabet on his own (which he did at night in his tent during warfare). He also made contributions to equality and the eradication of illiteracy more than any other leader has done (less than 100 years ago above 90% of Turks where illiterate. That, however, took a turn during & after his leadership). He's the only leader in modern world history whose foremost joy was in being a teacher. Because of him Turks can proudly say "Ne mutlu Türkum diyene" thousands of years after his departure.

7 John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy, 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 in November 1963. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the more.
8 Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist, who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

He's dead, absolutely no power from the grave

He, alongside FW de Klerk, and other great leaders ended a devastating division between the races of South Africa. We, as South Africans, owe that warm, fuzzy feeling of pride, when we hear the words "rainbow nation", all to him. A leader that changed South Africa, but influenced the entire world. We owe all this to a great man. Mr R. Mandela.

9 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Come on he at least should at least be no. 5!

He's a good guy

10 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, more.

He might not have the usual style, but he has the fearless substance needed to lead, and the street intelligence to fight dirty against corruption. A new kind of leader, a rebel against an archaic system of governing...future leaders will copy his direct style after his gone.

What he is a racist a sexist and a aleadist

He is now the strongest man in the world, EVER.

Having reigned since 9 June 1946, he was, at the time of his death, the world's longest-serving head of state and the longest-reigning monarch in Thai history, serving for 70 years, more.

He is the best king. He love every Thai people even disliked people. He worked tirelessly for his country in all his live.

One of the best kings in the world. He worked tirelessly for his country and loved his people.

He is the best king forever. I think the best world leader must be him - JadeAsia

12 Calvin Coolidge Calvin Coolidge
13 David Cameron David Cameron David William Donald Cameron is a British politician who is at present the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Leader of its Conservative Party, and Member of Parliament for the Oxfordshire constituency of Witney.


14 Abraham Lincoln 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 through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis .

Abraham Lincoln was a great man he thought slavery was wrong and went to war against the confederates in the end the union won but five days later he gave his life for America, he would never lie to anyone and gave great speeches.

15 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 is one of the WORST

16 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of more.

In terms of military strategy, he was a great leader--he seized a bunch of territories. As a leader in economic and foreign affairs, he was absolutely despicable. Germany was a mess because it invested a huge amount of resources towards the Third Reich, and was--irrefutably--an awful person.

He was a terrible person but a great leader, he managed to take a whole continent.

Good at what he did, what he did was not good

No he one of the worst - ikerevievs
