That's not what the thread is about. Every president since Andrew Jackson has left us with a national debt. Just about every fiscal year in the last 50 years has seen a budget deficit. There were only two or three exceptions. No one can blame our national debt on any single president. The OP is about each president's personal debt.
Listen, my brain saw President and the word debt. And I thought Obama. :(

Nobody seems to have come up with examples. There are some that have obviously acquired wealth and others not. It isn't like being President of Mexico, where you at least used to come out a billionaire. However, some recent ones have profited.
