Get him off my bill!
Did you hear he did this to win the election!?!
I heard he hired a lot of his own political supporters. He sounds like he did some bad things.

The Indian Removal Policy is An act by congress that requests the government makes treaties with Native Americans to move them west.
Andrew Jackson used the Indian Removal Policy to his advantage by gaining land for settlement. He did this by making the Native Americans move West, away from their homes. This gave him all of their land to settle in.
He moved the Native Americans to the west so that he could settle their land! I don't know how someone could do that!
