Donald Trump's favorite president: Andrew Jackson as father of the "white republic"


October 3, 2019

If there is one president that Donald Trump wants to associate with himself, it's Andrew Jackson.

The 45th president has repeatedly praised Jackson in his speeches and tweets, placed a portrait of the seventh president in the Oval Office, insisted (illogically) that the Tennessean could have prevented the Civil War and told an audience at Jackson's plantation, the Hermitage, that Jackson "confronted and defied an arrogant elite. Does that sound familiar to you? I wonder why they keep talking about Trump and Jackson, Jackson and Trump. Oh, I know the feeling, Andrew."
