3. the last businessman to be President?

Herbert Hoover, who gave us the Great Depression. I'm not counting Harry Truman who was, by his own admission, a 'failed businessman.' (His business went bankrupt.
Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Kennedy, Reagan - not a businessman in the group.
Point 1: running a government is not anything like runnning a business;
Point 2: running a predetory venture capital fund is also nothing like running a business.
