In a SiriusXM radio interview with Salena Zito, Trump says "I mean, had Andrew Jackson been a little bit later, you wouldn't have had the Civil War. And he was, he was really angry that he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War. He said 'There is no reason for this.' " In fact, Andrew Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War started.
Wrapping up his thoughts in that interview, Trump says "People don't realize, you know that, the Civil War - if you think about it, why? People don't ask that question, but why was there the Civil War?"
