His remarks about Jackson and the civil war appeared to arise from a discussion of a painting of the seventh president that Trump moved into the Oval Office after his inauguration. Why could that one not have been worked out? He was-he was a very tough person, but he had a big heart.

In March he visited the Hermitage, Jackson's home in Nashville, Tennessee, which was partly built by slaves, and was pictured saluting at the former president's grave. "It was during the revolution that Jackson first confronted and defied an arrogant elite. Does that sound familiar?"
