President Trump has long admired Andrew Jackson, but Marianne Williamson not so much apparently.
Williamson vows that is she were to become President the portrait of Jackson hanging in the Oval Office will be removed.
Of course, polling at low single digits and having no support from the Democrat party establishment, Williamson is likely to face this remodeling project.
Author and Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson said that she would remove the portrait of former President Andrew Jackson that hangs in the Oval Office if she is elected to be its next occupant.
Speaking at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum on Monday Williamson said, “We will begin by taking that picture of Andrew Jackson off the wall of the Oval Office. I am not a Native American woman, but I find it one of the greatest insults.”
Hinting at the United States’s historic mistreatment of Native Americans, Williamson said, “I want people of the United States to come to understand that what occurred on this planet was one of the great evils of history, but that I believe in redemption for nations as well for individuals.”
“We can atone. We can make amends. And if and when I’m president of the United States, we will.” she continued.
This comes as President Donald Trump has long alluded to Jackson as one of his favorite presidents.
In 2016 before taking office, he dismissed the move to replace Jackson on the $20 bill with abolitionist hero Harriet Tubman as “pure political correctness,” and said at the time that Jackson “had a great history.”
Within days of his inauguration in January 2017, Trump selected a painting of Jackson from artwork in the White House collections to be displayed in the Oval Office.
