The Ignorance Of Donald J. Trump – ‘Donald Trump – “But why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out”?
It leaves me speechless that the person sitting in the Oval Office has no understanding of the moral, legal and economic conditions slavery was driving America to.
Let’s set aside for a moment that Andrew Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War………
From an interview on Sirius XM airing later today:
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “His wife died. They destroyed his wife and she died. He was a swashbuckler, but when his wife died you know he visited her grave everyday? I visited her grave actually because I was in Tennessee”.
SALENA ZITO: “That’s right, you were in Tennessee”.
TRUMP: “And it was amazing. The people of Tennessee are amazing people. They love Andrew Jackson. They love Andrew Jackson in Tennessee…”
ZITO: “He’s a fascinating…”
TRUMP: “I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said “There’s no reason for this.” People don’t realize, you know, the Civil War, if you think about it, why? People don’t ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out”?
