Andrew Jackson was furious with the results of the election of 1824… but never doubted American democracy or the electoral process- he blamed his opponents. Jackson accepted the outcome and promised to right the wrong in 1828. Trump threatens litigation and possibly violence in his disregard for our process.
Clay and Calhoun were thorns in Jackson’s side… and so-called enemies of the “common man.” Jackson stood against his mortal enemy Clay in the election of 1832 and Calhoun resigned as his Vice President the same year. Neither man was arrested or charged with any alleged crimes. Old Hickory waited until the inauguration of Martin Van Buren before finally expressing disgust with his long-time rivals. Trump threatened to arrest and prosecute his opponent before the election.
There is no comparison between Trump and Jackson… for his many faults, Jackson was a war hero, public servant, and self-made man. Trump is nothing more than a womanizing, racially divisive demagogue.
