The New York Times, August 31, 2017:

"The Trump administration signaled on Thursday that the black abolitionist Harriet Tubman may not replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill after all.

"Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declined to endorse the plan for a 2020 redesign of the $20 bill that was announced by the Obama administration last year.

"People have been on the bills for a long period of time," Mr. Mnuchin told CNBC. "This is something we'll consider. Right now we've got a lot more important issues to focus on."

"President Trump, who has described himself as a "big fan" of the populist rabble-rousing president from Tennessee, made clear as a candidate that he didn't like the proposal to replace Jackson."

THE UNITED STATES HAS NEVER BEFORE HONORED A WOMAN, A BLACK, OR ANY OTHER MINORITY AMERICAN ON ITS CURRENCY. CONSIDER THE PROFOUND RAMIFICATIONS OF NOW DISHONORING THE TREASURY'S COMMITMENT.

NPR , April 13, 2016: "Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced on Wednesday that the countenance of abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman will grace a new $20 bill.

"The decision caps a public campaign asking for a woman to be placed on American paper currency and months of deliberation by the Treasury to replace either Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill or Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

"With this decision, our currency will now tell more of our story and reflect the contributions of women as well as men to our great democracy," Lew said in a letter to the American people."
