Donald Trump disagrees with the idea of Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson as the face of the 20 Dollar bill… But he has another option for the African-American suffragist abolitionist.

The billionaire cum politician weighed in on the news that Tubman would become the new face of the $20 bill by 2020 on Thursday's 'Today' show; ahead of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage.

"I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination," Trump began, noting that Tubman is "fantastic."

"Maybe we do the $2 bill or we do another bill. I don't like seeing it. I think it's pure political correctness… It's very rough when you take somebody off the bill," Trump spoke highly of the former president, Jackson.

Former presidential candidate Ben Carson also agrees with Trump when he told Fox Business on April 21 that Jackson should remain on the bill.

"I love Harriet Tubman. I love what she did, but we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill," Carson said.

As we previously reported, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew announced on Wednesday, April 20 that Tubman would be featured on the bill with Jackson and an image of the White House on the opposite side. He added that Jackson would remain on the bill because of the former president's "lasting impact on our country."
