Here are those 5 US  Presidents:

1. James Buchanan

Born: April 23, 1791

Died: June 1, 1868

Presidential Term: March 4, 1857 – March 4, 1861

Vice President: John Breckinridge

He declined to oppose the growth of slavery or the expanding group of states that would eventually form the Confederacy. Even before he was elected president, he backed several agreements that allowed slavery to grow into the western regions won through the Louisiana Purchase and the Mexican War. (The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, for instance, was particularly detrimental to the effort to stop the expansion of slavery because it permitted settlers to specify the position of slavery in their proposed state constitutions.)


2. Donald Trump

Presidential Term: Jan. 20, 2017 – Jan 20, 2021

Vice President: Mike Pence

Trump is the only president still in office and one of the five worst presidents in history. He is also the only president to have been impeached twice. Trump’s highest placements were 32nd and 34th in public persuasion and economic management, respectively. He came in last for both administrative ability and moral standing.


3. Andrew Johnson

Born: December 29, 1808

Died: July 31, 1875

Presidential Term: April 15, 1865 – March 4, 1869

Vice President: None

After opposing Reconstruction policies, such as the 14th amendment, Johnson avoided being impeached. Before he was elected president, historian Woodrow Wilson did a masterful job of defaming Reconstruction, portraying it as a vengeful program that harmed even repentant southerners while assisting northern opportunists, the so-called Carpetbaggers, and cynical white southerners, or Scalawags, who took advantage of alliances with blacks for political gain.


4. Franklin Pierce

Born: November 23, 1804

Died: October 8, 1869

Presidential Term: March 4, 1853 – March 4, 1857

Vice President: William R. King

Pierce’s passion for border expansion, which resulted in the addition of numerous slave states, helped pave the way for the American Civil War. The attractive Mexican War soldier who was elected as the nation’s fourteenth president supported national expansion, even at the expense of creating more slave states. He actively backed the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, which, along with the previous Compromise of 1850, virtually invalidated the Missouri Compromise of 1820 to achieve this goal.


5. William Henry Harrison

Born: February 9, 1773

Died: April 4, 1841

Presidential Term: March 4, 1841 – April 4, 1841

Vice President: John Tyler

He gave the nation’s most extended inaugural address before developing pneumonia, which caused his 30-day presidency to be the shortest in American history. It is an injustice to academic scholarship that the ninth president appears on any list. The Virginians’ most notable accomplishment was a victory over the Shawnees at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811.
