The correct answer is Benjamin Harrison

Which U.S. President’s predecessor was also his successor?

When most people think about the presidents of the United States, Benjamin Harrison is one that is often overlooked. Benjamin Harrison was the 23rd President serving from 1889 to 1893. His presidential term falls between the two terms of President Grover Cleveland. Cleveland is the only U.S. president to have served nonconsecutive terms – he was both the 22nd and the 24th president. In one of the most unusual transitions in US history, Grover Cleveland served his first term from 1885 to 1889, lost re-election to Benjamin Harrison in 1888, and then won a decisive victory in their 1892 rematch.

[Ans] Which U.S. President’s predecessor was also his successor?

The Whigs nominated Tyler for Vice President in 1840, hoping for support from southern states’-righters who could not stomach Jacksonian Democracy. The slogan “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” implied flag waving nationalism plus a dash of southern sectionalism.

Clay, intending to keep party leadership in his own hands, minimized his nationalist views temporarily; Webster proclaimed himself “a Jeffersonian Democrat.” But after the election, both men tried to dominate “Old Tippecanoe.”
