Trivia Question: What modern U.S. President was born Leslie King, Jr.?

Gerald Ford

Bill Clinton

Barack Obama

Ronald Reagan

 

The answer is : Gerald Ford

The man born Leslie Lynch King, Jr. is today better known as former U.S. President Gerald Ford. When King was still a baby his parents divorced, and after his mother moved to Michigan and remarried, King’s new stepfather Gerald Ford Sr. named the future President after himself. Aside from his little-known birth name, Ford holds a unique distinction in American history: he is the only Vice President and President to enter either office without being elected — he became President Nixon’s VP after Spiro Agnew resigned, and then became President after Nixon’s resignation.
