Who becomes president after the death of the vice-president?

If the US president dies, the vice-president becomes president and a new vice-president is appointed.If the 'new' president dies, the 'new' vice-president becomes president.This process is dealt with under the 25th Amendment to the US constitution which starts off....Section 1. In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President. Section 2. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.


After the Speaker of the House who assumes the duties of US President if both the President and Vice-President are unable to complete their terms?

When the President dies and the Vice become President he then picks a new Vice, and the cycle continues. Vice -> Pres ---------------------------------------- No, that's not how it works. First off the two never travel together so they can't be killed at the same time, but if the president dies the vice precident takes over and does not appoint a vice. The position remains open. If the vice then dies the next in command takes over. That would be the secretary of state. ---------------------------------------- Actually, after the president dies, the vice president becomes president, and if he dies, then the SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE becomes the new president........ ---------------------------------------- To add to the correction, the first paragraph above is correct. The second paragraph (the first correction) is very, very wrong. First of all, the President and VP could easily die at the same time. They could be assassinated at the same function, a nuclear attack could kill both, etc. Secondly, if the President dies, the VP becomes President and appoints a new VP, who then is confirmed by a majority of both houses of Congress. It is only if both the President and the VP die at the same time, or the President dies and then the VP who became President dies before he has appointed a new VP, that the Speaker of the House becomes President. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- the last guy was right, the president pro tempore becomes president after the speaker of the house...comes secretary of state, treasury, defense, attorney general, secretary of interior, agriculture, commerce, labor....finally a couple of people later it ends with the secretary of homeland security...

They serve the remainder of the original president's term. The Constitution was thus amended after the death of Kennedy (1963) and before the resignation of Nixon (1972).
