Biden Administration Will 'Speed Up' Efforts To Put Harriet Tubman On $20 Bill

I saw this coming when racist bastard Trump squashed the idea back in 2016.


President Joe Biden will move forward with a plan announced five years ago and stalled by the Trump administration to place abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.

"The Treasury Department is taking steps to resume efforts to put Harriet Tubman on the front of the new $20 notes," said White House press secretary Jen Psaki. She said it is important that the country’s money "reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that."

The Obama administration announced in 2016 that it would be placing Tubman on the bill, replacing Andrew Jackson. But the Trump administration said in 2019 that the change would be delayed until at least 2028 because of technical issues. Psaki said the White House is "exploring ways to speed up that effort."

You are incredibly uninformed. There is a lot more to the backstory than your typically slanted reference and your cherry-picked comment indicates. How pitiful......get some REAL news - try Reuters.
