Has any U.S. president quit the presidency?


Richard Nixon is the only US President who resigned while in office.

One could argue that George Washington “quit” by choosing not to run for a third term when he probably would have won.
Back then there was no term limit by law or precedent for the office of President, and Washington wanted to set a precedent of two terms (and finally retire to his home).
