Trump Admin Delays Harriet Tubman $20 Bill

Just as abolitionist leader Harriet Tubman was set to make history again in 2020 as the first woman highlighted prominently on U.S. paper currency, the Trump administration appears to be dragging its feet on the matter.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said that Tubman’s image on the new $20 bill probably won’t take for another even or more years — after Trump will have departed the White House.

Meanwhile, the president and members of his administration have been called out for their public insults toward Black women, who include Reps. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice and journalists Abby Phillip and April Ryan.
