"He said. 'There's no reason for this'". Jackson, a populist who railed against the educated elites of his time, occupied the White House from 1829 to 1837 and died in 1845 - the Civil War began in 1861.
"He used the phrase, 'If Andrew Jackson had been there a little later, ' meaning if he had been president, he might have been a whole lot less passive than (President) James Buchanan was", Lord said. One exchange focused on Andrew Jackson, and President Trump seemed to say that Jackson witnessed the Civil War. They also hit him over his statement over the cause of the Civil War, which was fought after Southern states seceded over President Abraham Lincoln's demand to free the slaves.
And, as it turns out, Jackson was president during a precursor incident, the Nullification Crisis (see wikipedia as well as a PJ Media article by Tyler O'Neil), in which SC asserted that it nullified federal tariffs that it opposed. That controversy, though, was not about slavery, and the eventual compromise that preserved states' rights is viewed as a milestone on the way to the Civil War.
In a separate interview Monday night, Meacham, who wrote a biography on Jackson, called Trump's comments "disturbing". The comparison is thoroughly apt, and Trump is known to admire President Jackson. He is saying that things would have been different if the Hero of New Orleans had been charge instead of Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan, who are routinely ranked among our worst presidents because their decisions made the Civil War all but inevitable.
Trump continued: "People don't ask that question, but why was there the Civil War?". Just last week, in an interview with Reuters, Trump suggested there was really no reason for the Israelis and the Palestinians to have been fighting for all these decades.

The president of the United States reveals that he does not understand the most basic truths behind the war that birthed America as it exists today.
First off, as most of the internet has pointed out by now, Andrew Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War even began and owned 150 slaves when he cashed out. I think our side's been proven very strongly. And frankly it should be discussed. "So we're looking at that, and we're also looking at the potential of going to Saudi Arabia".
CBS journalist John Dickerson, then asked, "I just wanted to find out, though".
Trump responded, "You can take- any way. So I don't know why the president gets into these messes that he doesn't need to". "That's the counterfactual question you have to ask". "You can have your own opinions". "I think it was pretty clear that I was to escort myself out, or I would be escorted out-I would be moved along", he said. "Thank you very much".
