Why Is The Trump Administration Stalling On Adding Harriet Tubman To The Twenty Dollar Bill?

According to the New York Times, the US Treasury Department released a letter to Congress Tuesday praising the civil rights heroine and former slave but made no indication that the Trump administration is committing to making Harriet Tubman the face of U.S. currency.


The former secretary of the department announced in 2016 that the dub was being redrawn to remove President Andrew Jackson from it and add Harriet Tubman to it by 2020.

Now the department is saying it will likely be more than 10 years before a new bill is released.

It looks like we won’t see Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill anytime soon because Donnie’s administration is taking their sweet time.
