Questioning citizenship


It is no secret that Donald Trump admires President Andrew Jackson. At Trump’s direction, Jackson’s portrait now hangs in the Oval Office, a controversial choice given heightened public recognition of Jackson’s violent legacy.

But it is also an apt choice. By attacking four minority congresswomen, as well as defiantly announcing an executive action to get around the Supreme Court’s recent decision on the U.S. Census case, Trump is embracing the two components of Jackson’s presidency that make him most reviled: his mistreatment of minorities and his abuse of presidential power.
