Trump: Andrew Jackson “was really angry with what he saw happening with regard to the Civil War”

Trump JacksonI have not had a chance to listen to this interview yet, but it sounds like a real doozy.

Here is a taste from Rebecca Savransky’s piece at The Hill:

President Trump during an interview that airs Monday questioned why the country had a Civil War and suggested former President Andrew Jackson could have prevented it had he served later.

“I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart,” Trump said during an interview with the Washington Examiner’s Salena Zito.
 
“He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said, ‘There’s no reason for this.'” 
 
Jackson, the nation’s seventh president, died in 1845. The Civil War began in 1861.
Read the rest here.  I am sure I will revisit this when I get some time.

  1. Good grief. Donald’s ignorance of history and propensity to make idiotic off-the-cuff statements feigning knowledge couldn’t be more transparent than it is in this interview.

  2. To be fair, the Spiritualist Church was in full swing by the Civil War. One of them may have solicited the late President’s opinions.
