Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announced on Wednesday that Alexander Hamilton will be kept on the $10 bill, and that Andrew Jackson is being removed from the $20 bill. The person replacing Jackson is someone the government feels will appeal to liberal race-baiters everywhere.
According to Politico, sources have confirmed that Harriet Tubman will replace Jackson on the $20 bill.
Lew is expected to also announce more changes that include putting leaders of the women’s suffrage movement on the back of the $10 bill, and incorporating civil rights era leaders and other important moments in American history into the $5 bill. Jackson himself will likely remain on the back of the $20 bill.
Last Summer, Lew started a controversy when he announced plans to take Hamilton off the $10 bill. Many were furious about this, as Hamilton create the Treasury Department and the modern American financial system. Instead, critics suggested Jackson be removed in his place, since Jackson played a large role in moving Native Americans off their land.
“There are a number of options of how we can resolve this,” Lew said last July. “We’re not taking Alexander Hamilton off our currency.”
Liberals are already celebrating about Tubman’s spot on the $20 bill.
“If this is true, great news! Tubman on $20 is the right call,” tweeted Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.). “The redesign needs to happen as soon as possible. Women have waited long enough.”
