President Andrew Jackson
Hero or Zero? Definite Zero.
Tyrant, Obsessive Vetoer...
History and Story
Trail of Tears and Constitution
Andrew Jackson was also compared to a king, abusing his power, giving his friends and followers government positions, vetoing too much, and didn't consult Congress when needed. He used the power of the veto and not consulting Congress to assume control of the government, which is why he was known as "King Andrew" by the cartoonists and those who didn't like him. Andrew Jackson used the veto twelve times, an obvious abuse of the power, and more than the presidents before him.
