Obama Demoted Andrew Jackson on the $20, Trump Visits His Tomb

As CNN reported, Trump is flying south to Nashville, Tenn., to visit the Hermitage, Jackson's home, and lay a wreath on his tomb. "I think Jackson is getting more publicity and press right now than he has since he was president".

Thousands of people are expected to attend the rally including WREG's Bridget Chapman.

The Obama administration announced that Andrew Jackson will be removed from the $20 bill, but it appears the seventh president might get a new image boost by President Donald Trump. The current president even has a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office.


After visiting The Hermitage, President Trump will hold an evening rally at the 9,000 seat Municipal Auditorium in downtown Nashville.

The White House's premier Jackson history buff seems to be Stephen K. Bannon, the president's chief strategist who frequently references Jackson in describing his vision for the future of the country. Andrew Jackson was a war hero who served brief terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, and as a military governor of Florida.

Then, the president posted about rapper Snoop Dogg, seen in a music video firing a toy gun at a man wearing clown makeup and dressed as Trump. The sixth president was America's first populist head of state, and many (including Trump advisor Steve Bannon) have argued that Trump is following in his footsteps. Premiums for plans offered to state residents through an exchange dramatically increased previous year, and competition has fallen, with residents of most counties only having access to one insurance company through the exchange.
