Biden Admin Ramping Up Effort to Remove Andrew Jackson and Put Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill (VIDEO)

The Biden administration is looking for ways to remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill and replace him with Harriet Tubman as soon as possible.

The effort to replace Jackson with Tubman had stalled under President Donald Trump.

“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.

Psaki rambled on about “diversity” on money before saying that they are “exploring ways to speed up that effort.”

“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.”

The removal of Jackson was announced by the Treasury Department in 2016 during the Obama administration. They had previously hoped to unveil the redesign by 2020, but was squashed by the Trump admin.

The Treasury Department originally considered replacing Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill, but activists demanded they replace Jackson instead due to his “role in moving Native Americans off their land.”

Trump had criticized the decision during his 2016 campaign, calling it “pure political correctness.”
