When Donald Trump is inaugurated, he is likely to be the first president in 24 years to have never used any form of an illegal drug, according to the Daily Caller.

The president-elect has claimed he has never smoked a cigarette, drank alcohol, or used illegal drugs.

In 2015 at a New Hampshire town hall, Trump said he always told his children, "No drugs, no alcohol, no cigarettes." He added, "If you don't drink and you don't take drugs, your children are going to have a tremendously enhanced chance of really being successful and having a good life."

According to the Washington Examiner. his children Eric and Ivanka both said that "every day of our life" he told them not to use drugs, drink, or smoke.

Trump has said a motivation for him staying sober was his brother Fred dying as a result of alcoholism, according to the New York Times.

The previous three presidents have all admitted to using drugs or refused to deny that they used them, the Caller reported.

President Barack Obama has said he used both marijuana and cocaine in his youth, and George W. Bush admitted to a drinking problem, according to the Caller.

Bush, in 1999 while running for president, would not deny that he had used cocaine.

"I'm not going to talk about what I did years ago. I made mistakes," he said.

In 1992, when Bill Clinton ran for president, he claimed he had smoked marijuana "a time or two" but famously said, "I didn't inhale, and never tried it again."

CNN posted a compilation video of Clinton's claim, as well as Obama saying he did inhale.

"That was the point," Obama said.
