It’s important that our notes, our money — if people don’t know what a note is — reflect the history and diversity of our country, and Harriet Tubman’s image gracing the new $20 note would certainly reflect that,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday. “We’re exploring ways to speed up that effort.” In 2016, the Obama administration approved a redesign of the $20 bill that would replace former U.S. President Andrew Jackson with Tubman, the formerly enslaved abolitionist who helped guide others to freedom through the Underground Railroad, on the $20 bill.

That we can — through NBCU marketing, through the outlets that we have, all the various media outlets, through the price point reduction, through the addition of content — that we can grow this audience significantly that currently watched it,” he added.
