Trump likes the guy who did more to commit genocide against native Americans than any other president. Trump is also chronologically-challenged.

Note to President Trump: Andrew Jackson wasn’t alive for the Civil War

“I mean, had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later, you wouldn’t have had the Civil War.”

This is in the vein of imagining various alternate histories of the United States.

“He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart.”

Jackson was known for his temper and his loyalty to his friends, so this is OK.

“He was really angry that– he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War.”

Jackson did not, because Jackson was dead.

“He said, ‘There’s no reason for this.'”

Big, big heart.
