Order of Presidential Succession

If you've ever wondered about what happens in a scenario where the President and Vice President both have to step down from their offices, you're not alone! The federal government of the United States has actually set an order in place for just such an occasion, outlined most recently in the 25th Amendment to the United States Constitution. While the country has never had to go down the line of succession beyond the Vice President, it's good to know that there are plans in place in case there are numerous vacancies.
