If we cloned George Washington, could he be elected President again?

Because the 22nd Amendment only restricts President's after its passage (aka Eisenhower forward)

    A clone is a new person who doesn't carry the memories of the original. So, they could serve for two terms maximum.

    He would be eligible. A clone is essentially an artificial twin.

    The original didn’t want to run for a third term. 

    I guess he could run again because he’s grandfathered in.

    A clone of George Washington would not be George Washington, he would be George Washington's twin. Twins are two different people.

    Obviously George Washington would not be electable today. I would say almost all of the previous presidents would not be electable today.

    Most presidents and people back in the day had views extremely different from what most Americans believe today.

    President Trump is leading with the spirit of George Washington. I'm voting for him again.
