Sometimes politicians tweet helpful and insightful things. Other times, they tweet things that are regrettable at best and in denial of history at worst.

A tweet from 2016 presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) early Wednesday afternoon fits into that latter category.

You can see the tweet below, which we took a screenshot of because it seems destined for deletion.

Oh boy. Where to start. How about here:

Gawker may have summed it up best with the snarky (and 100 percent correct) headline “Marco Rubio Remembers the Trail of Tears.”

Here’s a quick list of just a few times America has been engaged in armed conflict in order to expand it’s territory:

  • Northwest Indian War
  • Winnebago War
  • Patriot War
  • Mexican-American War
  • Apache Wars
  • Puget Sound Wars
  • Utah War
  • Great Sioux War of 1786
  • Second Samoan Civil War

We didn’t even get into the 20th century with that list.
