The President of the United States is the head of state and head of government of the United States.


Since the office was established in 1789, 44 people have served as president. Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms in office, and is counted as the nation's 22nd and 24th president. Thus the incumbent, Donald Trump, is the nation's 45th president.
