Carson: We Can Honor Harriet Tubman Without Kicking Jackson Off the $20
Dr. Ben Carson is standing by his suggestion that Harriet Tubman doesn't belong on the $20 bill.
"We have lots of options here," the former Republican candidate said on "The Kelly File."
Carson said Andrew Jackson is the last president to eliminate the national debt.
"That's no small feat," the retired neurosurgeon said.
Carson also suggested Tubman and Jackson share the bill, with one person on each side.
"That would be very symbolic, because Harriet Tubman was a slave herself. Andrew Jackson was a slave owner. And to give them equality like that I think would be a great symbol."
Carson said the point he was trying to make earlier on "Your World" was that no one should have to be kicked out of the way.
"We have plenty of opportunities to honor those who have done great things."
