Why so much pushback on Andrew Jackson leaving the 20?

So this "debate" has had me thinking.

I admire Andrew Jackson for several reasons, but one came to mind.

The man was adamantly opposed to a central banking system for several reasons. In my mind, having him on currency in a system that he opposed is more disrespectful than taking him off.

So is it just who's getting put on, and if so why?

Good question.

Hopefully not much. Although they upgrade the security and get new dyes anyways, so would it be much more for something that has to happen at some point anyways.

Yes it is.... just who they want to replace him with.

Do you honestly think that trump wants this on his legacy?

What ever it is.... it will be higher nine years from now.

Its not like its not going to happen. Its going to happen.

Trump just doesn't want the fact that a black woman was put on US currency during his presidency.

Period.... We all know why the delay.

At this point they aren't even trying to hide their racism.

SO you can read his mind.

Impressive!

What am I thinking right now?

I have always thought that the man who thought his greatest accomplishment was "killing" the second attempt at a central bank would have been mortified to find that he was on a note printed by the third and final central bank of America.

However, the push by Obama to instead have a Harriet Tubman $20 was just too much political correctness.

Of course Trump doesn't want this.

He identifies with Andrew Jackson, after all.

Which if you read a little of Jackson's Presidential history makes sense.

The decision has now been changed to after Trump leaves office.

As for who goes on the bill, does it really matter to the average citizen?

Really? Because even good old Snopes says he suggested the $2 bill instead of the $20.
Doesnt fit your narrative, does it?

Personally my favorite thing to do would be revert the banks back to Andrew Jackson's wishes and keep him on the 20 in honor of the change.

But I'm a realist more than a dreamer, so I know the odds of that.

“Why would they want to take him off?” would be a better question, because there is no reason to.

Well, you think you know the answer...

He doesn't think like you so he has to be racist.

The left needs to get another card... they have played the race card for so long as an excuse that you can't even tell what's on the card anymore.

All the while dealing in identity politics and the actual racism that is the foundation of the Democratic party.

It is just stunning, the level of stupidity at play to justify their ideology.

No wonder one of your Democratic leaders calls the Democratic base "Useless Eaters."

/facepalm

Ya... not much of a chance at that happening, which is truly unfortunate.

I fear our actual owners are here to stay.

The stated excuse is that we need more "diversity" in our currency and you know that Jackson was an evil white slave owner, so he and his legacy should be erased from modern memory.

You know... revisionist history.

That that striped sun dress is very slimming??



Harriet Tubman was an altogether admirable person, well deserving of commemoration. Having said that? My life will not end if we have to wait a bit to see it.

**shrug**

This nonsense that the delay is because "bad Orange Man" is racist, is just that, nonsense.

If I were him, I wouldn't want my face to be on something I fought against (our current banking system).

And I don't want that this thread to represent a position from Trump. I merely talking about society and the conversation.

My main point of contention is if we're going to "virtue signal" our currency now, why not just put Jussie Smollett on the 20!
