Trump Doubles Down On His Civil War Idiocy By Claiming Andrew Jackson Was A Psychic

Despite the fact that Donald Trump’s Andrew Jackson-Civil War comments were met with harsh backlash from historians and leaders of all political stripes, the president took to Twitter on Monday night to – what else? – double down.

Responding to the widespread criticism of his assertion that Jackson – who died nearly two decades before the Civil War even began – was “really angry” about the war not being avoided, Trump claimed what he really meant was that America’s 7th president could predict the future.


Trump’s claim that Jackson was a psychic follows his initial comments, which were aired in a radio interview on Monday: “[Andrew Jackson] 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.'”

Let’s just come out and say what probably happened here.

When Trump first made his comments about slave-owner Andrew Jackson being troubled that the Civil War wasn’t avoided, he clearly didn’t know that Jackson had died 16 years before one of America’s bloodiest wars even began.

Instead of admitting that he has a worse-than-elementary level grasp of American history, Trump doubled down and now claims that Jackson could predict the future.

In making yet another comment about Jackson’s supposed role in the Civil War, he is only keeping the spotlight fixed on his ignorance and giving this story more mileage than it probably would’ve otherwise had.

It also begs the question: Does Donald Trump know the name of any U.S. president besides Andrew Jackson?
