How many U.S. presidents have been sworn into office?

  • 42
  • 43 correct

    If you head on over to the White House website, click on the list of presidents and scroll down to the bottom, you will see that it says: 44 presidents. But before you go writing us to tell us our mistake, take a second look at President #22 and #24. Both are Grover Cleveland. Sneaky, sneaky, America! You see, Cleveland was a two-term President, however, unlike the other two-termers, he had a president in between so he often gets categorized twice. We are sorry that your entire elementary school Government class was a lie. Source: The White House official website
