In the age of Trump, alternative history is a thing. In audio posted this Monday, it seems that the current President of the United States thinks the 7th U.S. President Andrew Jackson was alive during the Civil War, and even had opinions about it.
According to President Trump in an interview with the an interview with the Washington Examiner, Jackson was “really angry” about what was happening in the Civil War. The problem with that assertion is that Jackson died in 1845, which is 16 years before the Civil War began.
“I mean, had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later, you wouldn’t have had the Civil War,” Trump said.
After describing Jackson as being a “very tough person,” but with a “big heart,” Trump said this:
“He was really angry that– he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War. … He said, ‘There’s no reason for this.'”
Of course, Jackson never said or felt any of those things. He was dead.
