President Trump, speaking at the Hermitage in Tennessee, compared his political rise to that of Andrew Jackson’s Wednesday.
“It was during the Revolution that Jackson first confronted and defied an arrogant elite,” Trump said as he summarized Jackson’s life.
“Does that sound familiar to you?” Trump asked after a pause. “I wonder why they keep talking about Trump and Jackson, Jackson and Trump. I know the feeling, Andrew.”
Trump then quoted Henry Clay’s reaction to Jackson’s victory in the presidential election: “Jackson’s victory shook the establishment like an earthquake. Henry Clay, secretary of state for the defeated President John Quincy Adams, called Jackson’s victory ‘mortifying and sickening.'”
Trump, laughing, said, “Oh boy, does this sound familiar. Have we heard this!”
