Carson on Harriet Tubman Replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20 Bill: ‘We Can Find Another Way to Honor Her’

Wednesday on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” former GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson weighed in on the Treasury Department’s decision to remove former President Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill for abolitionist Harriet Tubman.

Carson sung the praises of Jackson and suggest there should have been another way found to honor Tubman.

“I think Andrew Jackson was a tremendous secretary, I mean a tremendous president,” Carson said. “Andrew Jackson was the last president who actually balanced the federal budget where we had no national debt.”

“I love Harriet Tubman, but we can find another way to honor her,” he added.
