TUNE IN: Brian Kilmeade Goes Inside the Life and Legacy of Andrew Jackson
Airing on Fox News Channel, Sunday at 8:00pm ET
"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade is bringing you a must-see special that goes inside the life and legacy of America's seventh president, Andrew Jackson.
"Andrew Jackson: Hero Under Fire" airs this Sunday at 8:00pm and 11:00pm ET on Fox News Channel.
Kilmeade said the special will explore Jackson's critical decisions that helped shape our nation and the controversies that threaten his legacy today.
"He was the most famous man in America, who was orphaned at 13 years old. This guy should have been a criminal, he should have been a vagrant, he should have been a no-name. Instead, he was a congressman, a senator, attorney general, a legendary general and a two-term president," Kilmeade said. "That's what America's about."
He said the special will also examine some striking similarities between Jackson and President Donald Trump.
Kilmeade explained that when he started working on his book "Andrew Jackson and the Miracle of New Orleans: The Battle That Shaped America's Destiny" a couple years ago, he thought it would be a great history piece, but he had no idea that he would discover parallels between Jackson and the current president.

"Both get under fire for what they say, both are very similar candidates for what they did," he said. "Both of them do not know how to back down from a fight."
