The Tubman thing is among the least damaging bad things the Trump administration has done, but the fact that they put so much effort into preventing a *wholly ornamental* gesture against white supremacy tells you a lot about where they're coming from. https://t.co/QYbxeIqqhZ
We obtained a preliminary design of the Harriet Tubman $20 bill. The Trump administration recently delayed its release. https://t.co/Jfnr0rUREt
Donald Trump's day so far:
- Deranged interview with Fox & Friends
- Attacks Don McGahn
- #JohnMcCainDay is trending
- Trump has a Harriet Tubman scandal
- It's Trump's birthday
- Happy birthday asshole
- Impeachment is coming
- Trump is going to prison
- It's still only 11:30am
Remember when Steve Mnuchin told us the Harriet Tubman $20 would be delayed for 6 years for technical reasons and may never have her likeness? Well, here it is. We got a peek at the design, done in 2016! https://t.co/ketGMH2M1m
Here’s an early design of the Harriet Tubman $20 bill created by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Steven Mnuchin said designs would be delayed until 2026 and a future Treasury secretary will decide who’s on the face of the note. https://t.co/brRwxuu8F1
Visitors to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington are being told that the Harriet Tubman $20 bill has been scrapped for political reasons. https://t.co/h7TjAt04Y5
I am 100% behind Harriet Tubman appearing on the $20 bill, but it really needs to be this image, which captures this awesome woman so well:
This is the design the Treasury Department approved for the new Harriet Tubman $20 bill. The plan was to unveil it at next year’s 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. But the Trump administration killed it.
Harriet Tubman should just be on all the money.
Let's be absolutely clear: Trump and Pence ordering Mnuchin to delay introduction of the Harriet Tubman $20 bill is purely an action motivated by white supremacy. It is white rage in action. That's all this is.
The Harriet Tubman $20 Bill design is beautiful and stirring, and Mnuchin’s claim that it can’t be implemented before 2030 is not credible. https://t.co/QGGDS2qrkH
Unpopular and correct opinion: Andrew Jackson should stay on the $20 bill.
The Harriet Tubman $20 bill would be fine too, but revisionists have unfairly smeared Jackson.

Simple. Mnuchin's decision was that protecting the security of the currency is much more important than virtue signalling. Preventing counterfeit bills is far more important than whose image is on the notes.
An image of a new $20 bill, produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and obtained by The New York Times from a former Treasury Department official, depicts Tubman in a dark coat with a wide collar and a white scarf. https://t.co/sB0dZMTVev
Donald Trump: America's braveliest President:
Afraid of bone spurs
Afraid of his own school grades
Afraid of his own tax returns
Afraid of Harriet Tubman
Afraid of French drizzle
Afraid of Windmills
Afraid of USS John McCain
Afraid of Ghost of John McCain
The people who claim the Republican Party is still the "Party of Lincoln" in 2019 have to explain why Trump hung a portrait in the Oval Office of racist Andrew Jackson, the founder of the Democratic Party, and why he wants Jackson on the $20 bill instead of Harriet Tubman.
While you’re checking out that Harriet Tubman $20 bill mock up, this is what they do to the Lincoln $5’s in Kentucky. https://t.co/jcJfdguvpb
The Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin, had said the new $20 bill featuring Harriet Tubman would not be ready until 2026 due to technical reasons. The NYT has found a design that's been ready for years. https://t.co/mFmOgqvrvx
Instead of asking why Harriet Tubman isn’t on a 20 dollar bill, ask yourself what all the other symbolism & text on the money is.
Steve Mnuchin says that we can't have a Harriet Tubman $20 bill before 2030 but in 1991, we got 700 thousand U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia in four months.
Trump has criticized the decision to swap the current image of former President Andrew Jackson in favor of Tubman. In 2016, he praised Jackson’s presidency, saying he would prefer Tubman on the $2 bill.
I got off work 15 minutes early stg I feel like Harriet Tubman
NYT: Mnuchin misled Congress on why Harriet Tubman's image won't appear on $20 bill anytime soon https://t.co/d1AiVlbVD7
@SenatorShaheen @Suepe_Z @nytimes
They want to put HIS ass on it instead of Harriet Tubman, if they did that I’d head straight to the bank or a store and trade it for rolls of pennies if I had to so I could get it off my person😡🤦🏼♀️
i forgot they were making prints of harriet tubman on the $20 bill
Once the Harriet Tubman 20$ bills are everywhere I propose we call dubs “tubs” instead
The Harriet Tubman $20 looks ugly as hell. Who wants a black woman on our money?
Harriet Tubman "The General" was an unbelievable force! No superman, spiderman, or HULK could compare to this phenomenal, fearless, woman! I so want to recognize and honor her courage and achievements!
