~ President Richmond during his State of the Union address

Robert Richmond was the President of the United States before he was killed in the Capitol Bombing when delivering the State of the Union address. He was the father of Tyler Richmond.


Before the events of the series, Robert and his son Tyler had a falling out and hadn't talked to each other since. Unbeknownst to Tyler, however, Robert secretly attended his spring recital in the back of the room.

Tom Kirkman suggested topics for Richmond's State of the Union speech, but the latter scrapped them all.

Not long before the bombing, Richmond ordered his chief of staff Charles Langdon to remove Tom Kirkman from his administration. He was killed instantly when the Capitol exploded.
