Defending one of America’s best presidents, the Trump administration refuses to replace Jackson on the $20 bill.

Former slave and abolitionist, Harriet Tubman, will not make the $20 bill until Trump leaves office according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Trump has criticized the change.

 Andrew Jackson had a great history, and I think it’s very rough when you take somebody off the bill 

-Trump

In his early office days, Trump honored Jackson’s grave and hung his portrait in the oval office.

It was during the Revolution that Jackson first confronted and defied an arrogant elite. Does that sound familiar?

-Trump

So wholesome.

Democrat senator of New Hampshire, Jeanne Shaheen, who introduced the Harriet Tubman Tribute Act, called on the Treasury to make the bill change a priority.

 There is no excuse for the administration’s failure to make this redesign a priority. Sadly, this delay sends an unmistakable message to women and girls, and communities of color, who were promised they’d see Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. 

-Shaheen

Another to express frustration was Elijah E. Cummings (D. Maryland).

The administration’s decision to drag their feet and delay the redesign of the $20 until 2028 is unacceptable. Our currency must reflect the important role women, and especially women of color, have played in our nation’s history.  

-Cummings

Mnuchin was questioned by Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. After the hearing  she tweeted: 

Get BTFO'd. Protecc Jackson.
