8. George W. Bush

In 2001, many Democrats thought George W. Bush would be more cautious because he had lost the popular vote for 500,000 votes. When Bush took office he acted as if he had a large mandate. He pushed all of the policies he wanted and attacked Democrats when they tried to block. On some occasions he even attacked Democrats when it was Republicans who were trying to block his agenda.

I would not be surprised if Trump acted the same. Trump has the benefit of having both the House and Senate controlled by Republicans.
