“The Biden administration is looking at ways to speed up the process of putting Harriet Tubman’s image on the $20 bill after the effort stalled under the Trump administration,” according to The Hill.
“‘The Treasury Department is taking steps to resume efforts to put Harriett Tubman on the front of the $20 notes,’ White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during a briefing with reporters.
“‘It’s important that our notes, our money … reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that,’ she added. ‘So we’re exploring ways to speed up that effort.’…
“Former President Trump himself had expressed opposition to putting Tubman on the $20 bill at the time it was first announced, calling it “pure political correctness” during the 2016 campaign.” [emphasis added]
