Besides the shitty corruptness, pointed out by guizot, the thing that distinguishes Trump from all other presidents is that not only was business his main background, but it was his sole background. All the other people on your list spent some time either as an elected official or a cabinet secretary before they were elected president. Trump is the first president we've had that has had absolutely no government experience prior to taking office, and it shows.

I'm hoping that Trump's time in office puts a stake in the heart of the notion that what we really need in Washington is an outsider who will run government like a business.
