History shows Trump right on Buchanan
A few weeks ago, President Trump opined: “Had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later you wouldn’t have had the Civil War.”
From the pompous media to pompous academics, the anti-Trump progressives denounced the president for what they claimed to be an ignorant remark. Too bad those self-proclaimed defenders of their self-proclaimed truth didn’t spend more time studying history and less time being self-righteous.
Trump’s comment was in reference to the Nullification Crisis of 1832-33. This crisis was precipitated by the enactment of the U.S. Tariff of 1832. This was a protectionist tariff sought by northern state manufacturers. It imposed tariffs as high as 45 percent on certain manufactured goods.
