The US Treasury Department, led by Joseph Biden, announced that it will change the image of the $ 20 bill.
The photo of seventh President Andrew Jackson, seen as the founder of the Democratic Party and a slave owner, will be removed from the $ 20 bills.
It was stated that the idea of placing the portrait of African-American Harriet Tubman on the $ 20 bill, which advocates social reforms in the country and helps plantation fugitives to move to the USA, was discussed under the presidency of Barack Obama. However, it is claimed that this process slowed down after Donald Trump was elected president and came to power.
This was announced on January 25 by Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary. According to White House spokesperson Jen Psaki, the placement of such people will help reflect the country’s history and diversity.
It is said that the new US President Joe Biden wants to speed up the exchange of the $ 20 bill. Authorities are currently investigating various ways to do this. Therefore, the exact date on which the new banknotes will be put into circulation has not been announced yet.
