Donald Trump Not Cool With Harriet Tubman On $20 Bill

I mean really? Seriously Donald Trump? Guys, I have to say, when it comes to Donald Trump we are talking about total douchebaggery. I get up this morning and I start reading the news and then their is this article about how Donald Trump is up in arms about Harriet Tubman being put on the $20 bill: MSNBC Article. Doesn’t this guy have better things to do with his life?

So, Donald Trump thinks we should keep a racist, slave owning, responsible for genocide of Native Americans and sending them on the “Trail of Tears” kinda guy on the $20 bill as opposed to putting somebody on the bill who better represents America’s true values who escaped from slavery and then fought against that racist institution and fought for ideals like equality and freedom and respect for others. I mean come on guys, does this make any sense? Of course not! Donald Trump is just a total douchebag for not supporting the removal of Andrew Jackson (or off the front of it) from the $20 bill and putting somebody like Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill who better represents what America is really all about.

Anyway, so this article here from MSNBC goes on to say

Perry, Bacon Jr. wrote:

“Donald Trump’s take on the decision to put Harriet Tubman on the front of the $20 bill as “pure political correctness” is symbolic of a style of politics he’s displayed throughout this campaign: at times wary of changes to long-standing American customs and institutions and showing a willingness to take controversial stands on issues that affect women and minorities.”

Really? Pure “political correctness?” Is that what you call it Donald? Get real man! You see, you have to make logical sense first. So, if we look at what American values should be (ie freedom, equality and justice for all) is somebody who fought against the institution of slavery a better match for what our values should be? Or is a racist, slave holding, sending Native Americans on the Trail of Tears fit those values? Gees, I don’t know about you guys, but to me, what makes the most logical sense is that Harriet Tubman matches those values the best. Not Andrew Jackson! So why wouldn’t we be putting her on the $20 bill? She’s earned that honor and she represents what America is all about.

I even took the time to read the comments section of this article with one commenter remarking:

M. Kelly wrote in the comments section:

“As a white working class man, I have much more in common with a black woman than I do with either Trump or Jackson. Replacing a racist president on the 20 dollar bill with a woman, who risked her life for others, sounds good to me.”

You know M. Kelly, I absolutely agree with you 100%. I think a lot of people will find that many of the poor whites that fought in the Civil War had much more in common with African American slaves of those times. Yet, it’s sad to see that many of these poor whites had been conned by the slave owners of the time into a fighting a war for the preservation of slavery when in fact, all along they had much more in common with the slaves than the slave owners. And that’s the thing that’s crazy. How slave owners conned poor whites into fighting for their interests. But hey, the slave owners weren’t stupid. It wasn’t in their best interests to have poor whites and slaves working together to improve their lives.

So Donald Trump goes on by saying:

Perry, Bacon Jr. wrote:

“I think Harriet Tubman is fantastic,” Trump said in an interview on NBC’s Today Show on Thursday. “I would love to — I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination. Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill.”

Nah Donald, we already got rid of the $2 bill. This is like the lamest suggestion I have ever seen. The Donald is trying to have his cake and ice cream both by trying to please everybody and still having or keeping things his way. It’s just simply time to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. She represents what American values much better than Andrew Jackson.

Harriet Tubman was the first woman to lead US troops into battle. She led a raid on the Combahee River in South Carolina that freed 700 slaves.
