It seems like allot of Americans are on board with the idea of Donald Trump becoming the Republican nominee, and perhaps even President (God forbid). Hypothetically, if Trump became President, are there any Presidents in American history that are similar to Trump in any way? In other words, is Trump a historical anomaly, or have there been past Presidents that hold something in common with him? Personally, I can't think of anyone who has become President with a background similar to Trump. Every other President has had a position in politics before becoming President, whether it be a governor, a senator, a representative, a vice president, a general etc. In addition, it seems like Trump is much farther to the right than most presidents have been. What are your thoughts?
