The understanding of Donald Trump's story has never been particularly firm. Here are six times that he is particularly wrong.
No, Canada did not burn the White House
When Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asked how America could justify the new trade tariffs as a national security measure, Trump would have replied: "You have not burned the White House?"It was apparently alluding to the time of the War of 1812 during which British forces set the White House on fire and Canada would not exist until the age of 55.
No, America has not saved France alone
As good as this piece on the beach of Omaha where a guy is walking holding his own arm is recently cut off, Save Private Ryan has a lot to answer for. France was liberated by Allied forces, including the United States, in 1944, but British, Canadian, Australian, Czech, Norwegian, Polish and French troops also contributed to the landing and crossing of France. Moreover, the eastern front of Russia was fighting in the same way. Trump's grip is extremely cheese-eating monkeys.
No, the Soviet Union has not invaded Afghanistan because of terrorism
At a cabinet meeting on Jan. 2 this year, Trump suggested that "the reason Russia was in Afghanistan was because terrorists were entering Russia." They were right to be there ". Regardless of the fact that the United States has always been of the opinion that the Soviet invasion was not really a reality, on the grounds that wading in Afghanistan is not as funny as the others do it, the reason Russia went to war had nothing to do with terrorism. Afghanistan has never launched a terrorist attack against Russia. In brief: after a coup d'etat in 1978, the Afghan Communist Party appointed its president Nur Mohammad Taraki as president. Unfortunately, the Taraki regime was inspired by the reign of Stalin at the head of the Soviet Union to suppress dissent, kill political prisoners and slaughter civilians. Armed uprisings inevitably followed, Taraki was assassinated on the orders of Hafizullah Amin, his rival and successor to the presidency. The Soviet Union fearing that Amin was too friendly with the West, they intervened, staged a coup, killed him and put Babrak Karmal, his Soviet loyalist, at the controls. The guerrillas ensued and lasted a decade. So, nothing to do with terrorists.
The story continues
No, Frederick Douglass is not alive yet
"Frederick Douglass is an example of someone who has done a remarkable job and who is increasingly recognized, I noticeTrump said in February 2017, either changing his time or not realizing that the activist for abolitionism and suffrage had been dead for 122 years. "I think it was obvious to anyone having heard [Trump’s] comments or reads his comments that he was not aware of who Frederick Douglass was, "said Douglass's great-great-grandson Kenneth B. Morris Jr.
No, Andrew Jackson was not angry at the American Civil War
In May 2017, Trump hinted that President Andrew Jackson – whose portrait is now hanging in the Oval Office – was absolutely furious at the outbreak of the Civil War and would have prevented him, even though he died 16 years before his start. "I mean, if Andrew Jackson had been a little bit later, you would not have had civil war. It was a very hard man, but he had a big heart"Trump said in an interview with Sirius XM." He was really sorry to have seen what was happening in the context of the American Civil War, he said. "There is no reason for that." Hundreds of slaves he owned – which would likely have made his compatriot opposed to the war – or the Indians he had forced out of their ancestral lands. Swelling of the heart muscle could lead to heart failure. Trump could also refer to a Dane named Andrew Jackson, the huge breed of remarkable dogs / small horses, who can also fight huge heart problems But Trump was not on the point of retreating.
No, the civil war could not just be "over"
In the same breath, Trump then asked why the civil war had occurred: "People do not ask this question, but why was there a civil war? it could not have been solved? " Two questions and two answers: slavery; and slavery.(# You might also like,,)
