Former Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson said Wednesday although he’s a fan of legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman, her likeness shouldn’t replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
Asked in an interview on Fox Business Network about the announcement, Carson said Jackson, a slaveowner, was a “tremendous” President who balanced the federal budget.
“In honor of that, we kick him off of the money,” Carson cracked. “I love Harriet Tubman, I love what she did, but we can find another way to honor her.”
Carson, who endorsed Donald Trump’s campaign for the White House, suggested they put Tubman on the $2 bill instead.
