In a recent speech President Trump remembered the controversial former-President Andrew Jackson on the 250th anniversary of his birth at national heritage landmark in Hermitage, TN.
“It was during the revolution that Jackson first confronted an 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.”
President Trump remarks at the Hermitage (03-15-2017)
President Andrew Jackson, referred to as the People’s President, is said to have launched a campaign to battle government corruption and centralized power. I also known for planting a magnolia tree at the White House. His administration took a strong stance against the banking cartels, reffered to as The Bank War (1829–1837) on wikipedia. Coincidentally, President Jackson is portrayed on the common $20 federal reserve banknote.
The 7th President of the U.S. and founder of the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson is in the midst of being replaced as the face of the $20 (USD) bill with legendary spy Harriet Tubman (1822-1913), notably it was Democratic President Barack Obama who touted this change. Now with republican President Trump, things might be changing again, as Trump has indicated he will reverse the plan for the Tubman $20’s but the time the final design is ready in 2020.
“I think it’s pure political correctness,” Trump said during an April appearance on NBC’s “Today” show, suggesting that Tubman, who he allowed “is fantastic,” be placed on another denomination. “Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill,” Trump suggested.
“Andrew Jackson was a military hero and genius and beloved President, but he was also a flawed an imperfect man, a product of his time. It is the duty of each generation to carry on the fight for justice.”
