You’re the worst president America has ever had, come on!
- Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump, September 29, 2020 Presidential Debate
Many Democratic viewers likely nodded (or shouted) in agreement when Joe Biden told Donald Trump he was the worst president America has ever had. On the one hand, this is true. Trump’s presidency represents an unprecedented departure from the norms established over the course of the country’s two hundred and forty-year history. On the other, Trump is just one of many terrible presidents. From slave owners to electoral college victors, the United States has a history of inept and immoral presidents. In this talk, a US historian asks what the terrible presidents of the past can tell us about surviving – and overcoming – Trump. How have ordinary Americans mobilized against the presidential abuse of power? What tools from the past are available to us today? How can we strengthen the democratic institutions necessary to keep presidential power in check?
