Does Andrew Jackson deserve to be on the $20 bill?

Andrew Jackson is so annoying, he only shared the idea of sharing political power to everyone so that citizens would vote for him in the 1828 election!
i agree, he also replaced government officials with his supporters... I think it became known as the spoils system. He only did that to seem more likable and friendly to his supporters, so pathetic.
He also did something called the Indian removal policy, He forced Native Americans to leave their homes because he thought it would strengthen the Southwestern frontier. He's crazy! He definitely doesn't deserve to be on the $20 bill!
don't forget that he gave states their own individual rights because he believed that the limits were too strict to the Federal's government under constitution. thi was one of the best things he has ever done!
He also did an investigation into the bank because he objected the unusual economic power and lack of congressional oversight in business dealings, this was later known as the war on national bank! I thought what he did was pretty cool! I still don't believe he should be on the $20 bill.
