ⓘ Warren G. Harding

Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States. Before becoming president, he was a senator and the assistant governor of Ohio. Before he was in government, he was an important newspaper manager. He was the president starting in 1921 until his death in 1923.

                                     

1. Presidency

After World War I, he was elected on the promise to return the United States back to normal. He supported limited government in the economy. During his term, he lowered taxes and believed that the economy should not be regulated too much.

Warren G. Harding made the mistake of appointing his friends to high political positions. In result, they corruptly abused their power for their personal gain and several scandals happened during his presidency, including the infamous Teapot Dome scandal based in Teapot Dome in Wyoming and involving Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall. Other untrustworthy people included Edward Doheny and Harry Sinclair.

                                     

2. Personal life

Harding cheated on his wife with Carrie Phillips, a family friend. She supported Germany during World War I. In fact, many people thought she was a spy.

He also cheated with Nan Britton, who was over 30 years younger than him. He fathered a child with Britton. Afterward, she wrote a book called The Presidents Daughter, telling her story, but most people didnt believe her. However, in 2015, DNA testing confirmed that she was telling the truth about the baby.

                                     

3. What happened after his death

His vice president Calvin Coolidge became president after he died.

Historians generally consider him one of the worst presidents because of all the scandals he was a part of.
