He wasn’t one. And didn’t belong to any party, and he hoped political parties wouldn’t be part of the government. :( :( :(
He was elected based on his actions during and after the Revolution. The Founders wrote the Constitution with him in mind to be the first President. His greatest feat was peacefully leaving when he wanted to after his second term. For 150 years 2 terms in office was the most for any president until the USA, and the world, was faced with an existential crisis.
