Harriet Tubman returns for the 20-dollar banknote

Harriet Tubman, ca. 1885Remember the announcement by President Obama that anti-slavery activist Harriet Tubman would be the next face on the 20-dollar banknote replacing President Andrew Jackson? Well, that nice idea was shelved by his successor President T***p because... well, racism of course. 

But since we now have a sane person in the White House again, Harriet Tubman is back on the table! White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters the Treasury was "exploring ways to speed up" the process. The move would make Harriet Tubman the first African American to appear on a US banknote, and the first woman for more than 100 years. I think that's great news!

(And now, angry mails from MAGA-idiots in 3-2-1...)
