    I appreciate Harriet Tubman being honored on the $20 bill. It's not insulting to me.

    Is Hamilton in, and Jackson out, on U.S. currency?

    The saga over adding a woman’s picture to a major American piece of currency could get a big twist this week, with reports that Alexander Hamilton will stay, Andrew Jackson will go, and women will be presented on two bills.

    Last June, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced a five-year process to find the right woman, or women, to go on the new version of the $10 bill, replacing Hamilton, the father of the Treasury Department and one of the seminal Founding Fathers.

    Bye-Bye, Andrew Jackson—the Treasury Department Is Putting a Woman on the $20 Bill


    As you might recall, last year the Treasury department announced it would replace the image of Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill with a portrait of a woman who helped shape U.S. history. However, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce plans this week to instead replace the image of the nation's seventh president, Andrew Jackson, on the $20 bill with a portrait of a woman. According to a government source, the new bill will honor the struggle for equal rights and racial equality. As for the $10, the Treasury Department will keep Hamilton on the bill and redesign the reverse side, replacing the likeness of the treasury building with a mural-style image of the woman's suffrage movement.

    Harriet Tubman Will Be on the $20 Bill — And Racist and Sexist Trolls Reacted as Expected



    The U.S. Treasury Department announced a plan Wednesday to replace former President Andrew Jackson with abolitionist Harriet Tubman, a former slave, on the $20 bill. In the 226 years that the Treasury Department has existed, not one woman has ever appeared on U.S. paper currency.

    While the change will be a milestone for the country, it didn't take long for the racially charged, inflammatory and sexist comments to surface.

    Despite her accomplishments, many commented on Tubman's physical appearance ...

    Trump: Don't put abolitionist Tubman on $20 bill


    ... Citing Jackson’s “history of tremendous success for the country,” Trump said it would be nothing but “pure political correctness” to displace him from the widely used note.
