In 2016, Trump complained that having Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill was political correctness, wanting to keep Andrew Jackson on it. He said if she had to be on money, she should be on the $2 bill, which is no longer produced.

Today Mnuchin announced that Harriet Tubman was no going to even be a possibility under a Trump presidency; the soonest would be 2028.

I would love to see her get this honor, but I also revere Old Hickory.
So...mixed emotions.

I am against her being on it. Nothing against her, but others are more deserving of such.

At that, I am against any person being on money.

Trump disrespects women and is a birther so no surprises here.

Oh, I'm sure black people won't mind waiting a few more years to see a black liberator honored.

Harriet Tubman on the twenty is fine with me. I never much cared for "Old Hickory" anyway.
