Step aside, William Henry Harrison and James Garfield, a new president is in town and he's ready to beat your record...for shortest presidency. 

The moment Donald Trump was elected as president, people started asking, "Well, when will he be impeached?" Considering Trump's track record, most Americans couldn't see him lasting a full four years.

Professor Ronald L Feinman, who teaches at Florida Atlantic University, predicted that Trump's presidency will last somewhere between the 31 days of William Henry Harrison, who died of pneumonia, and the 199 days of James Garfield, who died after being assassinated.

Feinman added that a "Pence presidency" is almost inevitable, considering what Trump has done so far as president. 

"Many foreign policy professionals are shaking their head at Trump's inappropriate behavior and language every time he speaks in public, or issues a Twitter comment, and his instability and recklessness," Feinman said, explaining why Trump could be the first president to successfully be impeached.

Oh, believe us, we'll be counting down the days...
