Andrew Jackson a villian and a scoundrel

Andrew Jackson is considered a savior to some; but a monster to others.

To the Cherokee Indians Jackson was a monster for moving them off their land and the land of their fathers. The trail of tears was when nearly 125,000 natives were moved form their home to Oklahoma.
Jackson was also had rivals such as Henry Clay because of the unfair bargain, and John C. Calhoun his Vice President.
After Jackson being President he said he only had 2 annoyances...
..."After eight years as President I have only two regrets: that I have not shot Henry Clay or hanged John C. Calhoun."
This shows that Jackson wasn't the nicest guy around.
He even got a political party formed against him called the Whig Party. Which was essentially an anti Jackson party.
While many believe that Jackson was doing the country a HUGE favor for getting them land and money...
They forget how many suffered for them to be happy and wealthy.
So while Jackson was helpful for the growth of America; the cost to get it wasn't worth it.
