United States Presidential line of succession is the order of who replaces the United States President if the president leaves office before his term ends. If the President dies, quits, or is removed from office, the Vice President becomes President for the rest of the term. If the Vice President cannot do it, the next person in the line of succession acts as President. As of 2016, only the Vice President has replaced the President in history.
The laws about succession were first created in 1792. The second in line, after the Vice President, was the leader of the Senate.

Ну, и сразу, чтобы на возможный последующий вопрос ответить:
In the United States, a designated survivor (or designated successor) is an individual in the presidential line of succession, usually a member of the United States Cabinet, who is arranged to be at a physically distant, secure, and undisclosed location when the President and the country's other top leaders (e.g., Vice President and Cabinet members) are gathered at a single location, such as during State of the Union addresses and presidential inaugurations. This is intended to maintain continuity of government in the event of a catastrophic occurrence that kills the President and many officials in the presidential line of succession.
