Jackson,one of five best presidents?

Andrew Jackson

The video is an hour long. It is advertised as a lecture about Jackson as a general, but it is mostly about Jackson as a politician and as president.

Andrew Jackson doesn’t even make into the top 10 presidents.

He also doesn’t make it into the list of top 10 generals in US history (even if you don’t consider Confederate generals).

Is this something based on Trump liking Jackson?

The speaker does mention Trump, but only briefly. The speaker, in many ways, agrees with you about Jackson. I think you will find that the video has good information about Jackson.

Yes.

Jackson was quite the character.

In today's world he would likely have ended up in prison for a major portion of his life without ever having spent a day in the White House.

But that was then, this is now.

Yes, could be true, and the same might be said of George Washington.

Political Scandals of the Founding Era

The information about Washington begins at 7 minutes and 40 seconds and ends at about 12 minutes and 50 seconds.

The video has information about the scandals associated with the location of the national capital.

I understand why Trump idolizes Jackson...

Jackson was a man's man in a young country... much of what was a pioneer frontier... Jackson was a kick a** and take no hostages kind of guy... getting married to a woman who was already married was no big deal... his political enemies feared him...

Much to be envied by a draft dodging coward who seems to wish that he was really a Mafia Capo.
