    Business Insider recently published its list of our best and worst presidents.

    Trump came in dead last, and Obama was rated #8.

    Even people who identified as Republicans rated him close to the bottom

    Should read: not "dead last" but "mistake" of the century; also who will be able to reverse this downhill trend?

    Yes it is the downfall of Rome all over again; Ceasar's are gone, so will Trump.

    Dutch:

    George W. made a lot of blunders, and it took Obama a few years to correct most of the damage. Ironically, W's rank has improved to #30, but he has been as low as #39.

    I'm afraid that it is going to take more than 8 years to correct the damage that Trump has done, and it won't happen until we get another Democratic president.

    Yes, the "creeps" who are in love with Trump and his cronies, likely will make life of an by Democrats chosen President impossible. Also since Trump has broken all the "rules" how can you fix the "broken" system, if you don't change the laws here as I mentioned so many times. How about an "mandatory" law which states to provide "tax returns" well before you even "run"; if not, forget it to become President, even if you get more votes. It is time to make "black and "white" laws, of which not one lawyer can screw with. Also it is time to learn how to "vet" people; what they are doing now is pathetic; just look at the Kavanaugh thing; everything was already "cooked" beforehand.

    This country has a lot to learn; in 300 years they still don't have an proper system of governing, except zillions of "corrupt" lawyers who like to keep this"system" broken.

    Problem is that many amerikans have lost their moral compass, they really don't give a shit about gropers, grabbers and insulters anymore, they all think it's funny, a joke. Millennials sit on their asses paging through their smartphones in wonder of what their friends are doing, instead of getting out there and voting for good candidates. As long as they're entertained by a buffoon who mocks everyone, they're happy. This country has gone to shit in the past few years.

    In Chicago's mayoral race, voter turnout was only 32%, and Chicago news agencies blamed that on millennials and quality of candidates.

    Even before the 2016 election, a columnist for the Arizona Republic ranked Trump as #42 out of 44 presidents.

    After yesterday's events in our nation's capitol, it's clear that he is now THE worst president in our nation's history.

    Yes he's indeed the worst; ask yourself "why". The answer is that this country refuses to learn from past mistakes; the word "proper vetting" anyone for any job in the government was thrown in the garbage; the qualifications were only "who do you know" and what are your "connections" and are you smart in "stealing" or "bribing". As well do you go bravely to "church"

    So as long as such "stays", forget this country. Adapt the laws to fit 2021 and forget 1800's crap.

    Over time, the public's opinion of a president can change. Frequently, the opinion becomes more favorable, and Harry Truman is a prime example of that phenomenon.

    According to the most recent surveys, Trump is still among the very worst on the list- and that's likely not to change over time. Even years from now, he is still going to be THE WORST president that we have ever had.

    Does all of this help this country? I guess not. In no time we will make sure that we get an even worse President, if we don't change our "system", such as "electing" people without lots of "money" involved and other stupidity as well create solid laws about on how to govern.

    Sorry but I've not got the impression that an Biden will fix these lousy rules and laws here; just go on with the "old corrupted laws" and "broken" rules. Trump is laughing all the way to the bank, because of it.
