The old Secretary of Treasury, Jack Lew, wanted Harriet Tubman to replace the 7th President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, on the $20 bill. Most people disagreed. Only small minority groups and liberals/democrats wanted Jackson dropped for Tubman, a decision that most intelligent people considered not only a bad idea but a really stupid idea as well
You don’t just drop a POTUS from appearing on money and replace it with Harriet Tubman. That’s not how it goes and Trump’s team can put a stop to this VERY EASILY!
The thought of knocking Jackson off the $20 bill is not liked by many Americans, claiming that Jackson’s place in history was more prominent than Tubman’s. No one discredits Harriet Tubman for her accomplishments and fights for freedom, but they don’t believe she should replace an American President.
Former Secretary of Treasury Jack Lew announced last year that Harriet Tubman will replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 note. This was an administrative change, however, which can easily reversed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Security is the primary reason behind the currency redesign and the new $20 note is expected to be released after 2026, Lydia Washington, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, told The Daily Caller. “The redesign of the next currency series is still in the early stages and the Secretary of the Treasury approves all final currency designs,” Washington said. Mnuchin faced no questions during the confirmation process about whether he supports the proposed change by the Obama administration, and the Department of Treasury has not responded to repeated requests for comment. If Mnuchin were to follow President Donald Trump, then he will likely reverse Lew’s decision. “Andrew Jackson had a great history. I think it’s very rough when you take somebody off the bill,” the president said in April. Trump added that Lew’s decision was “pure political correctness” and that “maybe” Tubman could do on the $2 note.
I have a better idea. How about introducing a $25 bill. The treasury could place Harriet Tubman on that, leave Jackson on the $20, and everyone is happy.
Or a $35 bill. I don’t care what they do, but you shouldn’t knock A PRESIDENT off their dollar just to appease a small crowd.
Harriet freed 1,000 slaves, but Jackson was the founder of the Democrat party and 7th President.
Another idea is to simply leave the money alone. It is what it is. We don’t need to change anything.
Here’s something hilarious about the $20 bill debate.
Andrew Jackson basically founded the democratic party during his Presidency and the democrats want to knock their own founding Father off his $20 bill?
