U.S. Treasury End Plan To Add Harriet Tubman To Currency

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Wednesday that the treasury will not introduce a redesigned $20 bill picturing escaped slave and abolitionist Harriet Tubman next year as planned.

Reuters reports that President Donald Trump has called the inclusion of Tubman on the $20 bill an example of β€œpure political correctness.” As a presidential candidate, Trump suggested Tubman would be better-suited for the $2 bill, a note that is not widely circulated.
