The answer is that several presidents had not previously held elected public office before becoming President: Zachary Taylor, U.S. Grant, William Howard Taft [although he was governor-general of the Philippines], Herbert Hoover, and Dwight Eisenhower.

This now includes Donald Trump.

President-elect Donald Trump never served in any political office, elected or appointed and was never in the military. Herbert Hoover was the only other president who did not hold elected office or serve as an officer in the military. However, Hoover was Secretary of Commerce under Harding and Coolidge.
