The Trump administration is reconsidering an Obama-era initiative to make U.S. Mint history by replacing Andrew Jackson with the 19th-century American abolitionist as the face of the $20 bill, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday.
“Ultimately we will be looking at this issue,” he said. “It’s not something I’m focused on at the moment.”
His comment triggered instant ire on social media from the plan’s supporters, including Chelsea Clinton and David Simon, the creator of the TV show The Wire.
