Trump tweets about Andrew Jackson, after earlier questions

Trump tweets about Andrew Jackson, after earlier questions

Trump went on to say that his hero had a "big heart".

However, Trump clarified his comments Monday night and said he didn't actually say or think Jackson was alive during the Civil War, but he stood by his broader claim that the seventh president of the USA could have prevented the violence if he would have been alive at the time.

Trump and his supporters have likened his election victory to Jackson's triumph in 1828, when Jackson became the first USA president from what was then the western frontier of Tennessee.

Trump names 10 judicial nominees to fill federal courts
For instance, there is Michigan Supreme Court Justice Joan Larsen , who served in the Justice Department during the George W. Now, instead, with Justice Gorsuch having taken his seat on the bench, Kennedy is once again at the center of American law.


The statement itself is a little far-flung, so some have taken it to mean that Jackson was around when the Civil War was underway (he died in 1845, the war started in 1861).

Based on the reaction to his Civil War comments, Donald Trump may want to make sure he's fully educated on a subject before suggesting any more alternate histories. "Why could that one not be worked out?" the president rambled during an interview on Sirius XM Radio with Salena Zito from The Washington Examiner.

'President Andrew Jackson, who died 16 years before the Civil War started, saw it coming and was angry. But, come on. Everyone knows why there was a Civil War. Would never have let it happen!' he tweeted late on Monday.

Evha's family also requested that the ride is suspended until the inquiry has concluded and the "full facts" are established. She was pulled from the water by park staff then taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to the BBC .


Never mind that Jackson died over a decade before the Civil War started or that his presidency saw, in 1832 and 1833, the Nullification Crisis, in which SC was forced to pay tariffs under the threat of military force, or the fact that Jackson himself was a slave owner. "He said, 'There's no reason for this, '" Trump said. I wish I could say this is amusing and not deeply disturbing. Moreover, we have little reason to suppose that Jackson, whose cotton plantation lay in the heart of what was to become the Confederacy, would have taken the Union's side. So against the advice of anyone that's had the misfortune of watching him try to speak, Trump sat down for a series of interviews with the media he constantly complains about, and is now threatening to eradicate, because he's a narcisstic fuckfrog with a tenuous grasp on reality.

Donald Trump said he could have done a deal to prevent the American Civil War, historian Jon Meacham has claimed.

Trump's question makes a little more sense if one assumes he is referring to Jackson's stolid support of the Union during an earlier incident in which SC threatened to secede over the imposition of federal tariffs in 1832, when Jackson was president.

Microsoft to play nice with iPhones and Android with Windows 10 update
Windows not only sent over the client data that had already been captured, but also the business-app shell that had captured it. The news comes 14 years after " hell froze over " and Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that iTunes was finally coming to Windows.


Trump, during an African-American history month event, seemed to imply that the 19th century abolitionist Frederick Douglass was still alive. I visited her grave actually because I was in Tennessee. You're- you're the president of the United States.
