According to their most recent survey, Abraham Lincoln is ranked number 1 (with a final score of 897), George Washington number 2 (with a final score of 851), and Franklin D. Roosevelt at number 3 (with a final score of 841).
But there are two other presidents in history that, believe it or not, are worse than Trump: James Buchanan and Andrew Johnson, who are ranked 44 (with a final score of 227) and 43 (with a final score of 230), respectively.
How exactly were they worse than the former commander-in-chief?
The 15th president of the United States is considered to be one of the most inept presidents in American history because he didn't take any action to bring the country together as one surrounding the issue of slavery. He also didn't do anything to prevent the Southern states from succeeding in the build-up to the Civil War.
Before he became president, he had quite an impressive resume. He was a lawyer who served in the Pennsylvania state legislature and both houses of Congress and had roles as ambassador to Russia and Great Britain, including a stint as secretary of state.
Not too long after Buchanan's inauguration, the Supreme Court notoriously ruled that African Americans were not and never had the opportunity to become US citizens in the Dred Scott case.
The federal government couldn't ban slavery in its territories. As stated on History.com, Buchanan allegedly was influential in the outcome of the case and believed the ruling would put the slavery discussion to rest for good.
As the 17th president and successor after Lincoln's assassination, Johnson made history as the first president to be impeached.
Before he got into the political world, he grew up poor and didn't have a formal education.
He eventually served in the Tennessee legislature and Congress and became governor of Tennessee.
During the Civil War, he was also the only Southern senator to maintain loyalty to the Union.
Before Lincoln's assassination, he formed a plan of reconstruction that would be more lenient toward the South as it rejoined the Union. He also planned to grant a general amnesty to those who pledged their loyalty to the country and obey all federal laws surrounding slavery.
High-ranking Confederate officials and military leaders were excluded from general amnesty.
As stated in Lincoln's plan also noted that a tenth of the voters who had taken part in the 1860 election agreed to the oath within a particular state, and then said state could create a new government and begin sending representatives to Congress.
Johnson was keen to carry out this plan when he became president. But for the Radical Republicans in Congress who wanted to set up more military governments and hard-line terms for succeeded states for readmission. But no side was eager to compromise, which caused a clash.
