Indians voted for a “Swashbuckler”?

How many Indians voted on November 8th 2016

for this

“Swashbuckler”?

Thousands from what I have seem.

Notice the word

“Indian”?

Deepest apologies to my friends from India.

I did not use words like Natives or first people!

“How do you like him now”?

Trump called Andrew Jackson

“A swashbuckler.”

The Cherokees called him

“Indian killer.”

By Deneen L. Brown The Washington Post

WASHINGTON – Donald Trump has a portrait of Andrew Jackson hanging by his desk in the Oval Office.

On Monday, in an interview with Salena Zito, the 45th president lauded the seventh president,

calling Jackson

“a swashbuckler”

who could have prevented the Civil War.

The Cherokees had a different name for Jackson.

They called him

“Indian killer.”

The Creek called him

“Sharp Knife.”

On May 28, 1830, Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act, which Native Americans say was a form of legalized ethnic cleansing.

The act forced more than 60,000 Native Americans from their lands in the Southwest United States,

clearing the way for white pioneers.

Native Americans were forced to walk hundreds of miles

to resettle west of the Mississippi River.

Historians believe more than 15,000 died on the difficult journey.
