Liberals Are FURIOUS At Ben Carson’s Comments About Obama’s Change To The $20

Ben Carson

Former presidential candidate and now Donald Trump surrogate Ben Carson isn’t a fan of the U.S. Treasury Department’s plan to replace former President Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. In a way it seems as if he thought we should leave well enough alone.

“I think Andrew Jackson was a tremendous secretary, a tremendous president,” Carson told Neil Cavuto during an appearance Fox Business Network with the decision.

Carson’s rationale for that decision stems from Jackson’s most legendary accomplishment, which was balancing the federal budget. As Carson took his lumps yesterday, I actually agree with him.

Harriet Tubman was one very brave woman who deserves recognition, but she isn’t alone. Others certainly warrant consideration — folks like Rosa Parks, Ronald Reagan, and — yes– Andrew Jackson. Was it necessary to remove a U.S. President? Carson’s idea is a good one. Resurrect the $2 Bill. (No $3 Bill comments, please). The Treasury Department has made a recognition mess out of our coinage. I guess now they are starting in on our paper currency.

Ben Carson

From USAToday:

Ben Carson, fresh off beating Ted Cruz in a New York House district during Tuesday’s GOP primary, weighed in on the newest face of the $20 bill, Harriet Tubman.

His suggestion: Maybe she should be on a bill that’s worth less?

Carson’s comment came Wednesday on Fox Business Network’s Cavuto Coast to Coast, where he spoke with host Neil Cavuto.

“Well I think Andrew Jackson was a tremendous secretary. I mean a tremendous president,” Carson, a former GOP presidential candidate who now backs Donald Trump, said of the soon-to-be former face of the twenty.

“Andrew Jackson was the last president who actually balanced the federal budget, where we had no national debt,” Carson said. “In honor of that, we kick him off of the money.”

“Are you anti-Harriet Tubman?” Cavuto asked, presumably meaning anti-putting-Tubman-on-the-$20-bill and not anti-Tubman, just, in general.

“No, I love Harriet Tubman,” said Carson. “I love what she did. But we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill.”

The $2 bill was last issued in 2003.

Watch the video report:

Now they take away a president, Andrew Jackson, and replace him with someone else

Will this be a one-time stunt, or is this the beginning of a trend? In this administration, we should be glad they didn’t choose Osama Bin Laden or some Hollywood film star.

The Democrats hate White men and want to get rid of all the White men, including portraits of White men on dollar bills. Andrew Jackson is the first White man getting tossed, and more will come, as long as we vote in a Democrat into the White House.

One day soon, even the portrait of George Washington will be gone from the dollar bill, and will be replaced by, who knows, Barack Hussein Obama. Too much “social justice” behind these kinds of changes. The money has traditionally been the realm of remembering presidents. As Carson eloquently stated, we can find another way to honor Harriet Tubman’s immense contributions.

    I’m a white male over the age of 40 and I’ll tell you this. Ben Carson is a black man that relates more to me then my own brothers.Yes, you can say that racism exist in this country but you can’t say that when a black man stands up and speaks the truth, works hard to earn a career, make a living, uses good judgement, understands the importance of morality, is a man of great character, willing to help his fellow countrymen, willing to take on the job it takes even if it means death threats etc. they can’t say that I wouldn’t be willing to call him my brother and a part of my family.
    I maybe called a racist when I don’t agree with a person’s way of life, character, morality, life choices, view point, lawless actions, religious rebellion etc. but that has nothing to do with the person’s race or nationality.
    Evidently, Liberals don’t know the definition of (Racism). can not be defined as ” Removing your self from the presence of (people of low character)
    LMK, ” I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character “.

    Ha HA HA! Do you blame Ben Carson for what he said?? I don’t think so!! Many of us have already said we would not put such an FUGLY women as this picture depicts in my back pocket! Looks like we’ll be carrying dollar bill, $10, $50’s and 100’s around instead!! “F” Obongoloid and his friggin BLACK racist ass! I guess the only worse picture that could have been on the $20 bill would be a picture of Moosechelle!

    I will only say that I will never accept a 20 dollar bill as change or for any reason. Two tens or a ten and two fives will do. I will not accept a twenty dollar bill that has Jackson on the back or removed period. I am sick and tired of liberals and their political correctness crap and Obama and his so called social justice. If there is justice in this country we would see both Hillary and Obama in jail.
