Donald Trump has made no secret of his admiration of Andrew Jackson, who is widely reviled as one of the worst presidents for Indian Country. But do you know what Trump is really trying to do? Poet Tiffany Midge, a citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, has more from the White House:
President Donald Trump laid his body down and drifted into a necromantic state at the tomb of Andrew Jackson last week in Nashville, Tennessee. Prior to the visit, which was planned to commemorate Jackson’s 250th birthday, President Trump consulted a witch doctor and held a séance in the Oval Office with his closest cabinet members.

A White House spokesperson said: “The president is seeking a spiritual allegiance with the seventh U.S. Indian killer…uh, I mean President. He’s been trying to conjure Andrew Jackson since before he took office. I mean, he just loves the guy! It’s a regular bro-mance, despite the fact Jackson is dead. I mean, all I can say about their relationship status is that it’s complicated.”

In his first week in office President Trump hung a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office. Trump described his honorable master in a set of Tweets: “Some people might consider Jackson an unearthly beast, a black stain upon the universe, a reveler in anarchy and wickedness among the enclaves of darkness and shadows, but I think people should give him a chance! Jackson’s a great guy!”
