(AbsoluteNews.com) – Did you know Jimmy Carter is the longest-living president in American history? He was born in 1924 and turned 96 on October 1, 2020. The former commander-in-chief still finds time to help build homes for Habitat Humanity. That’s not the only record broken by an American president, let’s have a look at five others.

  1. Speaking of age, John F. Kennedy at 43 years old was the youngest elected president, but he wasn’t the youngest man to ever serve as commander-in-chief. In 1901, Theodore Roosevelt, 42, became the youngest president after William McKinley’s assassination.
  2. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan won 525 of 538 Electoral College votes, the most of any other candidate in history.

  4. Richard Nixon holds the record for the president with the most TIME magazine covers. He was featured 55 times.
  5. President Donald Trump had the most expensive inauguration in history. It cost a whopping $90 million.
