Top 5 Most Controversial Heads of State
5) Andrew Johnson
The 17th president of the United States who inherited the presidency. People not only resent him for fighting over the 14th amendment, or indirectly sentencing the Southern region to poverty. It would probably be because of his infamous quote “This is a country for white men, and by God, as long as I am President, it shall be a government for white men."
4) Narendra Modi
The Prime Minister of India will be remembered for being accused for the murder of 2000 Muslims in Gujrat during the 2002 Gujrat riots. Modi was the chief minister at that time and a lot of people blame him for the incident and condoning the atrocities committed against the minority Muslim community. The United States Department of State ultimately banned Narendra Modi from traveling to the United States due to his alleged role in the attacks.
3) George W. Bush
From invading Iraq in 2003 under the pretense that the country had weapons of mass destruction and calling it an “axis of evil” to “securing” Afghanistan in 2001 to topple the Taliban regime, President Bush is certainly one of the most controversial presidents. A lot of people question the interrogation techniques approved by his administration while some blame him for the economic recession during his tenure.
