Why Trump Wants To Keep Andrew Jackson On The $20 Bill (And His Opponents Are Fiercely Opposed)

It is no secret that America is governed by the US Federal Reserve System. The Federal Reserve’s main shareholders are in charge of the money and so are also in charge of America. To strengthen and maintain their power, these money bosses need ‘their own’ story. And that is why they are rewriting history – not just in textbooks and Hollywood films, but on banknotes too. Over the past century, America’s history has been well ‘edited’ on the country’s banknotes and their design has been changed more than once. 

It seems that the money bosses have no intention of stopping this practice. In April 2016, America’s then treasury secretary, Jacob Lew, announced that the country’s $5, $10 and $20 bills would have a new design by 2020. Lew made it seem as if the Treasury Department’s plans to redesign the banknotes were ‘the voice of the people’ rather than a whim of the authorities. According to the US Treasury Department, groups of activists on social networking sites had started calling for the country’s banknotes to feature prominent American women and well-known figures from ethnic minorities. The list of suggestions included First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt; Rosa Parks, who began the black civil rights movement; Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation; the Afro-American activist Harriet Tubman; and many others. The Treasury Department said nothing about how the suggestions were gathered and selected, however, or about the Women on 20s campaign group, which came from nowhere.

The Treasury Department’s plans to replace seventh US President Andrew Jackson with the little-known activist Harriet Tubman came as a real shock to many Americans. Many on social media said that the new banknote would be the «ugliest» in US history. Donald Trump, who at that point was still a presidential candidate, also responded in defence of the seventh president of the United States. «Andrew Jackson has a great history, and it seems rough to take someone off the bill,» said Trump during an interview with NBC in April 2016.

When Trump moved into the White House on 20 January, he immediately hung a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office. The current US president has made no secret of the fact that the seventh US president is both his role model and his idol. Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, has repeatedly compared Trump to Jackson. After the new president’s inauguration, for example, Bannon said: «I don’t think we’ve had a speech like that since Andrew Jackson came to the White House». Commenting on the unprecedentedly savage response of many media outlets, NGOs and business groups to his arrival in the White House, meanwhile, Trump himself noted that «there hasn’t been anything like this [in America] since Andrew Jackson».

For those currently trying to obstruct Donald Trump, he and Andrew Jackson are equally objectionable. In fact, everything possible is being done so that the average American does not even know who President Jackson is. They are willing to put anybody’s portrait on the $20 bill as long as it erases the memory of the seventh US president from Americans’ minds.

Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), elected from the Democratic Party (he is regarded as one of its founders), was US president from 1829 to 1837. He might have become president even earlier: in the 1824 elections, he won the majority of votes from both the electors and the electoral colleges, but he did not receive an electoral majority. The president was therefore chosen by the House of Representatives, which chose John Quincy Adams rather than Jackson. In the 1828 elections, Jackson’s campaign agenda, aimed at liberating America from the stranglehold of bankers, was crystal clear. At this time, the Second Bank of the United States, which was essentially a central bank, was in operation in America. It was a project of European bankers, primarily the Rothschilds. The bank managed to obtain a 20-year charter from the US Congress in 1816 and began lending money to the US government, leading to a rapid rise in government debt. Jackson’s slogan in the 1828 elections was: «No bank and Jackson – or bank and no Jackson». Jackson openly declared war on the banks and won. He became US president and started a campaign to revoke the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. In 1831, Nicholas Biddle, the bank’s president, sent a bill to Congress to extend the bank’s charter. The bill was passed by both houses of Congress, but Andrew Jackson vetoed the bill, which Congress was unable to override. On 10 July 1832, Jackson spoke of the dangers of a central bank: «It is not our own citizens only who are to receive the bounty of our Government. More than eight millions of the stock of this bank are held by foreigners [...] Is there no danger to our liberty and independence in a bank that in its nature has so little to bind it to our country? [...] Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy».

By 1833, the volume of banknotes and deposits issued by the Second Bank had risen to $42.1 million, a huge sum at that time, and Andrew Jackson tore down the whole structure. In 1833, he moved government funds from the Second Bank to a number of commercial US banks. Even more surprisingly, by the end of his presidency, Andrew Jackson had managed to completely eliminate the national debt. This seems inconceivable at a time when the level of US national debt is set to reach the $20 trillion mark any day now. There were a number of assassination attempts on Jackson and he was even shot at, but he died of natural causes. Before his death, he was asked what he regarded as his greatest achievement. Without hesitation, Andrew Jackson replied: «I killed the bank». 

I am sure that Donald Trump has a good understanding of all the nuances of Andrew Jackson’s presidency and knows that the US Federal Reserve System is essentially the same as a central bank. After Jackson, America survived for eighty years without a central bank. The Federal Reserve System was not created by the US Congress until the end of 1913, but more than one hundred years have passed since then. The money bosses have been in control of America for a long time. They hate Andrew Jackson, while Donald Trump is openly admiring of him. I think he knows he will not be able to repeat Andrew Jackson’s feat of eliminating the central bank, the balance of power is too unequal, but he does intend to fight back. In particular, he is going to try and reduce the national debt. Reducing the national debt to zero (as Andrew Jackson did) is a utopian dream, but Trump has repeatedly talked about slowing its growth or even carrying out a partial restructuring. This will also be difficult for him to achieve, however, since the money bosses need the Fed’s printing press to be in demand. And it is the US Treasury Department that is ensuring this demand by selling its debt securities for dollars.

Maybe, at the very least, Trump will manage to keep Andrew Jackson’s portrait on the $20 bill? We’ll see.

TAKE HIM OFF!!!  He would have wanted no part in being on a bill.

Donna Brazile: "It's time to take Andrew Jackson off of the $20 bill, and replace him with Jesse Jackson. And, while we are at it, let's put Michael Jackson on the $3 bill."

the point is moot.

bitcoin will make the dollar obsolete.

It's easy donald trump, 


                 simply arrest a banker, a leading banker, in front of their place of "work", with lots of cameras...

Is it too early to have Obama replace Andrew Jackson?

robertsgt40's picture

The real reason they want Jackson off the20 is because he stopped the moneychanger Rothschilds in their tracks. The first two "Bank (s) of the United States" were Rothschild run. Parasitic to the nation's treasury to say  he least. This is their last stand.

TwelveOhOne's picture

They're trying to change minds in the MSM commercials as well.  I recall (from a couple years ago, the campaign might have changed by now) that some credit card company had the slogan, "Alexander Hamilton -- the father of modern banking."

Yes, that's true.  It's no badge of honor!

Hey brah, can you spot me a Tubman....?

CaptainObvious's picture

Alexander Hamilton was also the ringleader of the Federalists, which is the reason why the fucking Feds have so much power today.  Burr didn't kill his ass soon enough.

Koba the Dread's picture

Burr gut shot him, too. Just to watch him suffer.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

I think the current one, the FED, is Rothschild run also.

No. But bills feature dead Presidents. I m willing to donate 3 .45 cartridges to fully qualify that cocksucker. Then I will start using 10's.

Harriet Tubman did rescue slaves but most of the those rescued included her parents, brothers, and other family members.  Non-family members were dumped off along the way, to make their way north on the Underground Railroad operated by white abolitionists.  Like the legend of Wyatt Earp and of Obummer, almost everything about Tubman is myth. 

nmewn's picture

This is sacrilege! You're a heretic! You're black woman with a dew rag hater! To say she did anything short of row out & personally saw the shackles off of her peeeples being shipped off to arab & hindu lands up the east coast of mother Africa is a complete Obamanation of the western leftwing myth doctrinaire!

Repent sinner on this high and holy day of all womenz of colour!


I threw the "u" in color in there to make it read europeon, cuz they're smart ;-)

Publicus_Reanimated's picture

And the U.S. government treated Tubman like dirt after the Civil War.  This has white guilt written all over it.

au_bayitch's picture

two birds one stone

Keep Jackson and put Harriet Tubman on the $500 bill

Davy Crockett's picture

I love it.  Hell, put her on the $1000. 

Just say "Ms Tubman was too important a figure in history to only be on a $20.  For that reason, I am reinstating the $1000 bill, and will put her picture on that.  Anybody that doesn't want me to bring back the $1000 bill is a fucking racist."

"The $1000 Tubman will be redeemable for 1/10th of an ounce of gold, at any US Treasury office, throughout the USA."

edotabin's picture

$1000 bill? Cashless society. Soon we will have only the $1,$2,$3,$4,$5,$6,$7,$8,$9 and $10.

Mareka's picture

Ronald Reagan would be a good choice for the $20.

If it's time for a woman maybe Tulsi Gabbard.
Gotta pocket full of Tulsis.

The banking cabal is run by (((them))). Hitler fought the same fight.

It's a racial networking cabal. Know who controls you. Prove me wrong

I for one, am hoping that Trump goes full Andrew Jackson. Yank the Fed's charter and send the libtards and their pet illegals marching down their own Trail of Tears.

DisorderlyConduct's picture

Geez your right, he probably would despise being on a bill from the very entity he crushed.

But isn't the struggle now to prevent his erasure from the public consciousness?

I guess if you figure f*** the bankers let them have their system, and I'm out of it then he really should come off. As distasteful as that seems. I'm just so sick of them erasing our history...

BabaLooey's picture

Actually......Jackson is a VERY GOOD President to have on money.............

It WAS actually MONEY when Hickory took on the banks........

Damn near paid for his life because of it.........


BarkingCat's picture

Take him off the fake federal reserve note and issue a 20 dollar treasury bill or a 20 silver coin with Jackson on it.

mary mary's picture

Yes!  On a silver coin.  (Maybe Arizona can do that.)

political_proxy's picture

EXACTLY why he was placed there.

He KILLED! the previous central bank (awesome job!).

Old Hickory was a badass in so many ways.

I do think it [jis pic on the fiat] is useful to some of us that know about Jackson [a la end the fed].

-take it sleezy, Jim

They were separated at birth. That is why.

Neither conventional...and look at those eyebrows....the same

How about just having special edition bills in addition to all the current ones, that end after 5 years?

Anyone believe in negotiation any more?

thanks for the tip on how to burn more tax payer Dollars :/

I voted for Trump to drain the swamp, and all I got was keeping Andrew Jackson's portrait on the $20 bill (maybe)?

stacking12321's picture

haha, sucker!

serves you right for voting.

I was hoping for a t-shirt, at least.

Well, if you had voted for Cankles you could have gotten a participation trophy...

If the Hildabeast had won, all we'd get would be an unmarked mass grave out behind Camp FEMA.  I like you guys and all, but there's no way I want to be sniffing one of your asses for eternity.  When I go, I want to be buried without a coffin, with my ass cheeks sticking up so they can be used to park a bicycle.  I'd be more useful dead than alive. ;)

Be patient, your Tubman t-shirt on its way

Just got mine.  There are plenty more for sale.

Some contractor was suing a woman but he had done wrong, so we awarded her.

Would rather have set someone free, judging the law and not the parties, but oh well.  First time serving.  Agree with you.

mary mary's picture

Only problem I had was when we found a black kid guilty of something we thought minor (nobody got hurt, nothing got stolen or damaged), and then the judge sentenced him to 6 months prison.  If I had known that was possible, I would have voted not guilty.  I should have asked more questions.

TwelveOhOne's picture

That's the worst, when there's no victim but someone goes to jail.  Sad.  Glad you learned your lesson, and hopefully you can help him later.
