Is the Harriet Tubman $20 bill dead?

There is a mention of the project in Omarosa's book "Unhinged," which is then mentioned in this article in the Canadian publication MacLeans:

https://www.macleans.ca/politics/washington/unhinged-donald-trump-no-longer-shocks-which-is-shocking/

As they say in the wallpaper trade, "How's it hanging?"

    I don't think it will happen in this administration, but I hope it does in the next. We have had the same faces on USA currency for a long long time and IMHO it is time to try some new ones!

    CaptHenway, yes it is dead. Hesitant to post this in today’s political environment, but the objective of the current administration is to overturn and undo every single idea implemented or proposed by the prior administration. It will not happen!

    (Munchin was quoted a while back saying it was “not a priority”)

    The most expensive purchase is the forgery.

    One need only look to Trump's hanging of a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval office to divine that Jackson's visage is not destined to be replaced on the $20 note.

    Hello ! You've made me very happy. Give me Eleanor Roosevelt but don't try to give me some stern old scowling granny.

    Sorry.

    What would be the low cost option in getting a genuine cirulated $500 Bill ?

    Entry level minimum is $600 or more, although I recently saw one on eBay for $555.

    Hope so; lacking in broad appeal imo.

    I dunno, Harriet Tubman was a hard-swinging gun-toting Republican... could have some fun with that.

    Personally, I'd love a commemorative release of a redesigned $10, 2 year run each, with

    Frederick Douglas
    Nathaniel Greene
    Thomas Edison
    Amelia Earhart

    designed notes with associated themes. Then, back to Hamilton.

    I recently found a Wooden Block painted up like an Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix Box. I grabed that piece of Folk Art really fast, the wonderful Vibe was too good to pass up. Aunt Jemima had an actual Black Lady promoted as AJ back in the 1800's. This Black Icon might not be as deadpan serious as Hariet Tubman but who doesn't love Aunt Jemima? You don't think Black Lady with Aunt Jemima, you think HAPPY LADY, great Pancakes, great full belly , happy times !

    Is there any lesson here? Image !!!!!!!!!!!

    Even little Rocket Man in NK knows to smile and be HAPPY while threatening us with a Nuclear Firestorm. Hitler didnt seem to know that thing about image. John McCain didn't seem to know that. Obama knew that and kicked gumpy red faced old white mans arse.

    Did Old Lady Tubman ever smile in her life? Probably not. She was dealing with an ugly situation in her time.

    But..... would it really hurt to lighten up on that deadly scowl.... just a little bit?

    Please ?

    If we need to be so PC , I'd prefer to see a historical figure rather than some PC Pop Queen that is just basically ET on Steroids. But of course, all joking aside, Aunt Jemima is a great choice for America, the World AND PANCAKES !

    My Grandma used to make Pancakes.

  • Wow!! If there is a God or a real Admin on this site, I hope they eliminate you FullStrike from further participation here. Unreal.
