Trump Is Totally Confused About ‘Why The U.S. Had a Civil War’

President Donald Trump gave a series of revealing interviews this weekend as he marked the 100th day of his presidency, making some bizarre comments about the Civil War and his non-existent relationship with former President Obama.

During an interview with the Washington Examiner’s Salena Zito, Trump questioned why the country had a Civil War and suggested former President Andrew Jackson, who was president from 1829 to 1837 and died in 1845, could have prevented the Civil War, which broke out in 1861.

“I mean had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War. He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart,” Trump said during an interview

“He was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War, he said, ‘There’s no reason for this.'”

Jackson, the nation’s seventh president, died in 1845. The Civil War began in 1861.

Trump also touted what he said was a “beautiful” letter that Obama left for him in the Oval Office.

“Look, you can figure it out yourself. He was very nice to me with words, but — and when I was with him — but after that, there has been no relationship,” Trump said.

Asked if he stands by his unsubstantiated claim that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower in New York City, Trump said, “I don’t stand by anything. I think you can take it any way you want.

Our side has been proved very strongly, and everybody is talking about it. And frankly, it should be discussed. I think that’s a very big surveillance of our citizens. Think it’s a very big topic and it should be No. 1 and we should find out what the hell is going on.”
