Through all the facts and evidence, yes I believe that Donald Trump and Andrew Jackson are similar and No I believe they are not similar. The first two reasons why I believe they are similar is because, According to the article by U.S News and world report, they say “Like Trump, Jackson was brash, abrasive, defensive and quick-tempered and both were described as vulgar and unfit to govern. Jackson was also thin-skinned and felt the world was against him and that the ruling elites looked down on him”(Killian). If you hear trumps speeches they are very aggressive and uptight, also i have hear many answers from donald trump when people ask him questions about things he states he is going to do, he answers very aggressive to some people who ask questions that are somewhat against him and his opinions.The second reason why I believe they are similar because, the most common thing between Donald Trump and Andrew Jackson is their use of race to separate the nation and unite their supporters and their regards for the rule of law. The concept of Herrenvolk (master race) democracy is the idea of oppressing one or more racial groups while promoting the idea of equality among the white oppressors”(Killian).
For Trump, this involves Muslims and Mexicans who have become scapegoats for our national security threats and manufacturing job losses. In Jackson’s case, one example was his removal of Native Americans from Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama to Oklahoma in the Trail of Tears where 4,000 Indians died on the journey. The reasons why I believe they are not similar is because there different ways of treating women donal trump treats women poorly, whereas Andrew Jackson killed a man in a duel for insulting his wife. Jackson considered his wife and deceased mother a saint, according to Politico Magazine, “he considered his deceased mother a saint and his wife, Rachel, an angel. He defended the honor of Peggy Eaton, the spouse of his friend and war secretary, John Eaton, against the aspersions of many in Washington”(Brands).
Lastly the reason why they both are not similar is because before office Trump did not show or do anything to show his commitment to public service (Brands), whereas Jackson before his presidency spent his adult life in the service of Tennessee, “He helped write the Tennessee Constitution and was a Tennessee circuit judge. He served in the U.S. House and Senate. He was the governor of Florida when it was a federal territory. Most conspicuously, he commanded the Tennessee militia and then U.S. Army troops in the War of 1812.
Jackson’s victory over the British at New Orleans was the signal triumph for American arms between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War” (Brands). Andrew Jackson was more committed to public service than Donald Trump. There are some similarities with Jackson and Trump but also there are many things that they are not similar by comparison from them both. I believe this is an accurate comparison because not everyone is similar but some of the stuff Trump and Jackson state and did were similar, so there are similarities and some non similarities between them.
