In this quote, Hillary Clinton seems to be strongly endorsing the idea of putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, which had been proposed as a way to honor her achievements and legacy.

By describing Tubman as a “woman, a leader, and a freedom fighter”, Clinton appears to be highlighting the significant roles and impacts Tubman had through helping enslaved people escape to freedom via the Underground Railroad, as well as her work as a political activist later in life.

Clinton’s statement that she can’t think of a better choice for the $20 bill suggests she believes recognizing Tubman in this high-profile way on U.S. currency would be a fitting way to commemorate Tubman’s bravery and important historical contributions as someone who fought against the injustice of slavery and for the rights of African Americans.

Big news today: The U.S. Treasury will put African American abolitionist Harriet Tubman on the front of the new $20 bill. She will be replacing former president Andrew Jackson, who will be moved to the back of the bill, Treasury officials said on Wednesday. Former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton will remain on the front of the new $10 bill, officials said, after the Treasury department encountered fierce opposition to its initial plan to remove the founding father to make way for a woman to appear on the paper currency.
