When Mr. Donald J. Trump is inaugurated as the President of the United States, American citizens will be under the guidance of a man who has had neither previous experience in the military, nor held a public office.

Mr. Trump comes to the office with a background in business, but in January he will be the first American president without either military service or public office. Most presidents have had both military and public office experience; in fact, there are only three presidents who have had exclusively military experience, and eleven who have had only public office experience.
