Rules former presidents have to follow.

Reddit shared a Grunge article showing "Rules former presidents have to follow -- Being president of the United States is one of the most coveted jobs in the country, as evidenced by the many candidates we hear from every election year. Getting to choose the direction of the country is pretty appealing, even if it is a ton of work to both get the job and to actually do it.

But one thing no one tells you is that the job doesn't stop when the presidency is over. Even former presidents are expected to do a lot, like attend events, raise funds, give speeches, and do tons of interviews about what it was like to be commander-in-chief.

The job also stays with them in other ways, too, because once someone stops being president, they're part of an elite club of ex-presidents for the rest of their life, and that also comes with a lot of restrictions. Yeah, just because you were the commander-in-chief, that doesn't mean you can do whatever you want. From driving cars to using cell phones, these are the rules that former presidents have to follow..."
