Donald Trump a Jacksonian?

Not so long ago, the 45th president of the United States Donald Trump fancied himself a Jacksonian, referring to the 7th president of the Republic as his role model in public life. Relying on splendid historiography by H. W. Brands, I discuss this very question on my podcast.

So, then, are there any similarities between Trumpism and the Jacksonian era?
