Gerald Rudolph "Jerry" Ford, Jr. (born Leslie Lynch King, Jr.; 14 July 1913 – 26 December 2006) was the 38th President of the United States, serving from 1974 to 1977.
Ford's administration was influenced by Abstergo Industries, the public front of the Templar Order. The administration, and namely the Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, supported the military junta of Argentina. Under the rule of the junta, American corporations transferred their debt to the people of Argentina, and thousands of its opponents were killed.
