Of Course They Will

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that the Treasury Department could scrap plans finalized under President Barack Obama to replace President Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman.
There are two reasons. First off, not putting Tubman on the $20 will please the shit out of the batshit racists in Trump's base.

Second, even though Old Hickory likely would have regarded Trump as a coward, Trump seems to believe that he is like Andrew Jackson. Well, maybe he's like Andrew Jackson's feces, but that's as far as it goes.

Also, Trump lied about seeing the effects of Hurricane Harvey. His Administration isn't even bothering to try to cover him on it. What Trump's idea of "first-hand observation" means that, if you watched any of the coverage on The Weather Channel, congrats: You saw it first-hand.

I wouldn't believe Sarah Huckabee Sanders if she said that the Sun was up at noontime.

Jackson HATED the idea of paper money, so his likeness on the twenty is sort of ironic to begin with. Also, they weren't gonna take him off, just move him to the back, which seems sort of screwy to me.
Maybe now they'll go back to the original plan to put Tubman on the ten; Fergus and his boys don't think much of Hamilton, last I heard.

Harriet Tubman isn't going on any paper money anytime soon. This administration won't, no subsequent R administration will, and I'm not sure it will be a priority for the next D president.
