Donald Trump Rally in Nashville, Tennessee

Share

President Donald Trump has scheduled another campaign rally, this time in Nashville, Tennessee. Jackson was born in relative poverty, while Trump famously entered the world in wealth, and the presidency without any experience in public service. Trump plans to visit late in the afternoon, laying a wreath on Jackson's tomb, taking a tour and learning more about Jackson.

ACLU-TN's website says the organization has planned an event in downtown Nashville to "mobilize against recent attacks on civil liberties by the White House and Congress - from the Muslim ban to attacks on immigrants to efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and more".

Although a portrait of Jackson now hangs in the Oval Office, Trump's comments on the former president have been vague at best.

In true Jacksonian fashion, Trump will leave the Hermitage for a rally in Nashville's Municipal Auditorium. Similar to Trump, Jackson asserted the system was rigged against him.

"Like [Andrew] Jackson's populism, we're going to build an entirely new political movement", Bannon told the Hollywood Reporter. Jackson also forced Native American nations to move west of the Mississippi River, a ruthless relocation that became known as the "Trail of Tears". On Inauguration Day, Bannon again invoked Jackson. He repeatedly hinted throughout the campaign that he might continue to hold rallies as president.

House Republicans recently unveiled their replacement for the Affordable Care Act, the Obamacare legislation they have long vowed to repeal.

President Trump will be the 14th U.S. President to visit The Hermitage. "This is the plan we ran on all of past year".
