Harriet Tubman, the sword-wielding, gun-toting spy and freedom fighter who led dozens of slaves to freedom in the north after escaping from slavery herself is set to become the first black woman to be featured on American currency—specifically, the $20 bill.

According to a new report from TIME, however, the impending inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump and the administrative changes that will come along with it have some within the Department of the Treasury concerned about the future of the new legal tender.

We have pictures of presidents on those bills. Bad enough the Martin Luther King sits among the presidents.

FWIW, Harriet Tubman was a conservative. She would NOT have approved of the black racism that is currently running wild among the liberals.

If leftists want Harriet Tubman on a bill, just create a $25.00 bill. Leave the Hero of the Battle of New Orleans alone.

OMG, the USA will melt. The Fed doesn’t like $20s anyway.

Solution: Cut Tubman and as a replacement, put Obola on the penny. Since the penny for all practical purposes is worthless, it would be completely fitting. And the Blacks would get to “relive his presidency” every time they put a penny in their fuse box to keep the lights on!

Only the Founders should be on currency. I don’t even want Reagan or Coolidge on money, so it’s nothing against Tubman.

He’d be better off on a $3.00 bill, since he’s as queer as one.

That was feminist bullshit anyway. I have never heard of the woman. I am well educated and quite astute on the actual -history of America and she in non-existent to me. I really don’t want to know so don’t tell me.

Actually, I am for this one. Replacing the founder of the Democrat party with a gun toting Christian Republican female. Excellent trade.
