Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson on Monday told a Native American forum that she will remove the portrait of former President Andrew Jackson that currently hangs in the Oval Office if she is elected to the White House.

While Trump has espoused a populist brand of politics similar to Jackson’s on the campaign trail, the slave-owning seventh president signed into law the Indian Removal Act in 1830, which precipitated the forced relocation of Native Americans known as the “Trail of Tears.”
