Donald Trump’s Latest WTF Remarks: ‘Why Was There a Civil War?’

civil war trump

Donald Trump made some bizarre remarks about the Civil War today, referencing slaveholder and plantation owner Andrew Jackson, who died 16 years before the Civil War began, as as someone who would have been angry about the Civil War and would have stopped it.

Said 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 a Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?”

Writes the WaPo: “One glaring issue here: Jackson wasn’t really angry about what was happening with the Civil War, because he died more than a decade (1845) before it started (1861).”
