George Bush Senior

The last president to serve only one term was George Bush Sr., who was president between 1989 and 1993.

Mr Bush was swept out of office by Democratic challenger Bill Clinton as America struggled to emerge from a prolonged economic downturn.

He was also followed by a high profile and extremely unpopular U-turn that promised to avoid tax cuts.

Jimmy Carter

Before that, Jimmy Carter, the 39th The US President only had one term before losing to Republican Ronald Reagan, who had two full terms.

Mr. Carter won his presidency ahead of Gerald Ford, who also unsuccessfully sought a second term.

Gerald Ford

This is not the first time Mr Ford has run for president. He was raised to the oval office after then incumbent Richard Nixon fell out of favor due to the Watergate scandal.

His controversial decision to apologize to Mr. Nixon was cited as a reason for the failure of his re-election offer to Mr. Carter.

Herbert Hoover

Herbert Hoover served only one term between 1929 and 1933. In a landslide, he lost to the hugely popular Democrat Franklin Roosevelt.

Mr. Hoover oversaw the stock market crash and the onset of the Great Depression in 1929.

Mr. Roosevelt famously steered America through the end of the Great Depression, was the architect of the historic New Deal social reform agenda, and was in chief for much of World War II.

William Howard Taft (1909-1913), Benjamin Harrison (1889-1893), Martin Van Buren (1837–1841), John Quincy Adams (1825-1829) and founding father John Adams (1797-1801) round out the list of presidents who tried and failed to win a second term.

While only 10 presidents failed in re-election, there are other presidents with a term who served only one term without re-election or who died in office.

The most famous of this group is John F. Kennedy, who served only two years, ten months and two days of his first term before he was murdered.

Donald Trump

On Sunday morning, Australian time, the Associated Press called the state of Pennsylvania on behalf of Democratic candidate Biden and gave him the 270 electoral college votes he needed to win and defeat Mr. Trump.

At 77, Mr. Biden becomes America’s oldest President and the 46th President of the United States.

On Sunday he tweeted, “America, I am honored that you have chosen me to lead our great country.”

“The work ahead of us will be tough, but I promise you this: I will be president for all Americans – whether you voted for me or not. I will keep the trust you have placed in me. ”

However, incumbent President Trump has refused to allow the election and reiterated unsubstantiated allegations of electoral fraud and wrongdoing.

In a statement following the outcome, Mr. Trump alleged that Mr. Biden was rushing to “falsely pass himself off as a winner” and reiterated his baseless allegations of widespread electoral fraud and misconduct.

“The simple fact is that this election is far from over,” he said.
