Gerald R. Ford. Ford was selected and confirmed as the vice President on December 6, 1973, while he was a US Congressman, after the resignation of Vice president Spiro T. Agnew. Ford then became President on August 9, 1974 with the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.

The Constitutional requirements to be president are:
1. be at least 35 years old
2. be a natural-born US citizen*
3. live in the US for 14 years.
* The Constitution specifically states that one must be a "natural-born" US citizen not "native-born." "natural born " is not defined by the Constitution and has not definitively been defined by the Supreme Court but is generally interpreted to mean either born in US territory or born of US citizens (see the Related Link below on US Code Title 8 for more information).
The exact words from the Constitution in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5:
"No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. "
The 22nd amendment gives an additional requirement in that it makes a person ineligible for president if he had already been twice elected president or has been elected once and also served more than two years of a term to which he was not elected.
The US does not hold special presidential elections.

Washington wore many partial and full dentures over the course of his life, but contrary to popular belief, none were made out of wood. Instead, they were made from ivory, lead-tin alloy, copper alloy, silver alloy, real human teeth, and probably cow and horse teeth, too.
Dentures made of wood weren't common in his time, and although his false teeth were very uncomfortable, they were also fairly advanced for the late 18th century. The wooden teeth myth probably stems from the fact that as the ivory dentures were used and stained, they developed a grainy look, possibly being mistaken for wood.
Unfortunately, the real human teeth he used were likely purchased from slaves, and they didn’t really have the option to refuse the purchase.
Donald J. Trump is the current President of the United States. He was elected on November 8, 2016 and succeeded Barack Obama on January 20, 2017.
General George Washington (1732-1799) was the first President of the United States of America under the US Constitution. He was elected in 1787 and again in 1792 and served as President from April 30,1789 until March 4, 1797.
The Hanson argument--
Sometimes, John Hanson is referred to as the first US president due to his ancestors' success of convincing the Maryland Legislature that he was the first President to serve under the articles of Confederation--- but that is NOT the same as the elected President of the US. The Hanson Family's lobbying effort was so complete that in 1903 Maryland included his statue, as one of two, allocated for each state in the US Capitol's Statuary Hall. Although Hanson served as President of the United States Congress Assembled, under the Articles of Confederation, , this was very different from that of a modern-day U.S. Presidency. Moreover, Hanson was actually the third President of the United States in Congress Assembled. The Articles of Confederation Presidency lineage as follows:
William Howard Taft is the only person in US History to serve as both President of the United States and and a member of the US Supreme Court.
In 1921, President Warren G. Harding nominated Taft to replace Chief Justice Edward Douglas White, who had died in office. The Senate confirmed his nomination in a secret vote by a margin of 60-4. Taft presided over the Court until 1930, when he was forced to retire due to ill health.
The Senate (Legislative branch) votes to confirm or reject the Presidents' (Executive branch) US Supreme Court (Judicial branch) nominees. Approval requires a simple majority of the Senators voting, unless a Senator attempts to block the vote by filibuster, in which case a three-fifths (60) vote is required to end the filibuster. under current Senate rules.

The US president has earned $400,000 a year since 2001, along with a $150,000 expense account, a $100,000 nontaxable travel account and $19,000 for official entertaining and $10,000 per year in franking expenses (letters and postage). All of the President's salary and expenses are approved by Congress. And all of this - except the $100,000 per year in travel expenses per year and the $10,000 per year in franking expenses - is taxable income.
Obama's total is $569,000
- Salary - $400,000
- Expense Account - $50,000
- Travel Account - $100,000
- Entertainment Account - $19,000
US presidents are elected to a four-year term. The maximum number of full terms that a president can serve is two. Presidents who took over for another president and have served more than two years can seek only one additional term.
There have been 44 men who served as US President as of 2011. It is often said that President Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America. However, President Obama is only the 43rddifferent person to serve as President of the United States. This is due to the fact that President Grover Cleveland served non-consecutive terms and so is usually counted as both the 22nd and the 24th President.
US Presidents who were assassinated and their assassins:
Abraham Lincoln: April 14, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth
James Garfield: July 2, 1881 by Charles Guiteau
William McKinley: September 6, 1901 by Leon Czolgosz
John Kennedy: November 22, 1963 by Lee Harvey Oswald
More details on the assassinations
1) Abraham Lincoln was shot on Good Friday, April 14, 1865 at approximately 10:15 p.m. President Abraham Lincoln was shot by actor and Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth while attending a performance of Our American Cousinat Ford's Theatre with his wife and two guests. Lincoln died the following day-April 15, 1865-at 7:22 a.m., in the home of William Petersen. Booth was shot on April 26 in Virginia.
2) James Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881. He did not die until 2 months later, on September 19, 1881 and it is now believed that he died from blood poisoning due to poor medical treatment. Guiteau was tried, convicted, and hanged. The James A. Garfield assassination took place in Washington, D.C., at 9:30 a.m. on July 2, 1881, less than four months after Garfield took office. Charles J. Guiteau was the assassin. Garfield died 11 weeks later, on September 19, 1881 due to infections caused by substandard medical care.
3) William McKinley was shot twice on September 6, 1901 and died September 14, 1901. The assassin was anarchist Leon F. Czolgosz who was convicted and electrocuted.
4) John F. Kennedy was shot at 12:30 PM CDT November 22, 1965, and was dead on arrival at Parkland General Hospital in Dallas. Lee Harvey Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby two days later. Kennedy was shot while riding with his wife Jacqueline in a presidential motorcade through Dealey Plaza. Although Kennedy was not formally declared dead until half an hour after the shooting, he effectively died instantaneously. The ten-month investigation of the Warren Commission of 1963-1964 concluded that Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald, an employee of the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza. The United States House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) of 1976-1979 later determined that Kennedy's murder was probably the result of a conspiracy that included Oswald.
Unsuccessful attempts at assassination
There have been about two dozen actual attempts on many other Presidents.
Andrew Jackson was not hurt after a man pointed two different pistols at him at close range and pulled their triggers, but miraculously they both failed to fire.
Theodore Roosevelt was shot while running again for President in 1912, and the bullet remained in him until his death in 1919. Ronald Reagan was shot two months after his inauguration in 1981, but fortunately survived the ricochet wound that penetrated his lung. Gerald Ford was the target of two female assassins, fired upon once but was not hit.

Impeachment is the process used by a legislative body to bring charges of wrongdoing against a public official. Basically, it is the indictment of an appointed or elected public officer on serious criminal charges. The legal basis for impeachment is stated in Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution:
"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."
The House of Representatives is the only body that can impeach federal officials. If a federal official is impeached, a trial by the Senate follows, which is where guilt and the potential removal from office is debated. It is important not to confuse impeachment with conviction. Impeachment is just a formal accusation; it is only the first step in removing a public official from office.
The idea of impeachment in the United States is usually discussed in reference to the president, although only two presidents have ever actually been impeached, compared to seventeen officials in other positions. Andrew Johnson was impeached on February 24, 1868, on charges of violating the Tenure of Office Act by removing Secretary of War Edwin Stanton from office. William ("Bill") Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998, on charges of lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstruction of justice. Both Johnson and Clinton were acquitted in the Senate. Impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon had made it out of committee, but he resigned from office on August 9th, 1974 before it could be debated on the House floor.
Impeachment inquiries have been attempted on a number of presidents throughout the United States' history, including John Tyler, Harry Truman, and Ronald Reagan. In fact, every elected president since 1980 has been the subject of at least one Congressional resolution that suggested impeachment inquiries.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) was the only U.S. President elected to four terms: 1932, 1936, 1940 and 1944. He died on April 12, 1945, only three months into his fourth term, and was succeeded by his Vice President, Harry Truman.
On February 27, 1951, almost 7 years after FDR's death, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution was ratified essentially limiting the term of the U.S. President to two 4-year terms.* Prior to the 22nd Amendment, there was no limit on the number of terms a President could service. Prior to FDR, Presidents followed a precedent set by George Washington to only serve two terms, even though they were not required to limit themselves.
*The 22nd Amendment actually allows an individual to serve a maximum of 10 years as President, but they can only be elected as President for 2 terms. In order for an individual to serve as President for 10 years, they would have to first be Vice President and assume the Presidency with less than 2 years remaining of the outgoing President's term, and then win 2 terms as President.
Thomas Jefferson was first to be in office a full eight years, from 4 March 1801 to 4 March 1809. George Washington , the first president, served two full terms, but his first term started late and began on April 30 , instead of the intended March 4, date due to delays in the government set up, in this very first presidential election. Therefore his first term was a little short of four years and he did not serve a full eight years.
