Andrew Jackson The First tyrant of the United States

Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the United States, did not want to be a villain, but his actions made him one.
Personality- Known to be hot-tempered, violent, over reactive, and emotional. He was the kind of person to not take no for an answer.
The Bank Battle- He vetoed the new charter for the Bank of America even though it was ruled Constitutional because he thought it favored he rich but by doing that he discriminated the rich. He also did not wait for the bank to die out and decided to starve it to death by removing federal deposits and putting them into state banks.
Duels- Andrew Jackson has competed in many duels and in one occasion, he had shot and killed a man named Charles Dickinson in a duel because Dickinson insulted his wife. Yes, Jackson's wife Rachel Donelson, who was also married at the same time she married Andrew Jackson, was insulted and Jackson wanted to defend her, but by doing so he killed a man and was not punished.
Other Actions as President- Replaced Republican officeholders and replaced them with loyal Democrats which resulted in the making of the Whig Party. Also threatened the state South Carolina during the Nullification Crisis.
Indian Removal- When the Cherokee Nation refused to leave their homeland, Andrew Jackson decided to use his army and force the Natives off their land even though the Supreme Court ruled the natives sovereign. It was so cruel that the men that escorted the Indians did not agree with Jackson's actions.
"No one need think that the world can be ruled without blood. The civil sword shall and must be red and bloody."
