Trump's Man-Crush on Andrew Jackson Isn't Going Away

Back in March, Trump told us that he considers President Andrew Jackson to be his hero. And why wouldn't he be? He was xenophobic, strangely fond of orange (cheese), a racist, a slave owner, loosely involved in ending an endless war with Muslims (the Barbary Wars), oh and he was absolutely insane.

Is this Trump or Jon Voight? 

So today when Trump said that President Jackson would have prevented the Civil War, be dismayed at his absolute ignorance of facts, but don't be surprised:

"He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart, and he was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War," Trump told the satellite radio station's “Main Street Meets the Beltway” program.
"He said, there's no reason for this. People don't realize, you know, the Civil War, you think about it, why? People don't ask that question," Trump continued. "But why was there the Civil War. Why would that one not have been worked out?"
Jackson was in office from 1829 to 1837 and died in 1845. The Civil War broke out 16 years after Jackson's death, on April 12, 1861, when Fort Sumter, in South Carolina, was attacked.
