Donald Trump tweets that former President Andrew Jackson, who died 16 years before the Civil War, saw it coming and was angry about it. Um, so, he was psychic? That’s since Jackson was a slaveowner.
Trump tweeted: “President Andrew Jackson, who died 16 years before the Civil War started, saw it coming and was angry. Would never have let it happen!”

Um, instead of walking away with a shred of dignity after being caught being ignorant, Trump has to put out fake news because he cannot admit being wrong or being an ignoramus.
Of course, Twitter erupted into more mockery:

Guess in fairness had Andrew Jackson had the steadying hand of Jarod Kushner he might have stopped the Civil War.

@adirado29 Trump's long time friend Pavarotti who DT recently mentioned is doing well must have given him another 10 min history lesson re Civil War.

@realDonaldTrump Yeah, he and Frederick Douglass and Jesus were all pretty angry about the Civil War. 🙄 GTFOOH, you didn’t know what you were talking about.
