Biden Administration in Push to Put Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill
February 4, 2021
In April 2016, then-President Barack Obama announced that Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Obama wanted the release of the new bill to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment in 2020 that gave women the right to vote. However, Trump had expressed an affinity toward Confederate figures and sang the praises of Andrew Jackson, claiming that he had led the U.S. to great success during his two-terms in office from 1829 to 1837.
