Correction: The president's remarks in front of The Hermitage were not open press. Here are highlights with an assist from WashPo's Abby Phillips:

Trump's speech again made comparisons to himself and Andrew Jackson in front of The Hermitage, Jackson's childhood home.

"It was during the revolution that Jackson first confronted and defied an arrogant elite. Does that sound familiar?" Trump said to laughs from the crowd.

"What a great visit. Inspirational visit I have to tell you. I'm a fan."

"Captured by the red coats and ordered to shine the shoes of a British officer, Jackson simply refused."

"From that day on Andrew Jackson rejected authority that looked down on the common people."

Trump said Jackson was the people's president and launched a campaign to root out government corruption.

"People are proud again of our country and your going to get prouder and prouder and prouder," Trump concluded.
