A List of the Presidents of the United States

Here, in classic chronological order, is a list of those who have held the office of President of the United States of America from 1789 to the present.

Yes, Grover Cleveland is listed twice. He served two non-consecutive terms, and so is both the 22nd and 24th president. That’s why, though 43 people have been president, Donald Trump is now considered the 45th president.
