    Default A Special President


    Tumps Favorite, offers a reward..

    “ten dollars extra, for every hundred lashes any person will give him, to the amount of three hundred.”

    The ad was signed, “ANDREW JACKSON, Near Nashville, State of Tennessee.”
    [It is unclear if this is 3000 lashes or 300 dollars]

    "Jackson, whose face is on the $20 bill and to whom President Trump paid homage in March, owned about 150 enslaved people at The Hermitage, his estate near Nashville, when he died in 1845, according to records. On Monday, President Trump created a furor when he suggested in an interview with the Washington Examiner’s Salena Zito that Jackson could have prevented the Civil War."

    A terrible president, a terrible human, and a guy who hated the idea of a federal bank. So why is he on a Federal Reserve note?
