A tweet by The Hill is generating plenty of outrage online Thursday afternoon, after the site reported on a CNBC interview with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Look at the nerve of this guy:

There’s only one problem with that tweet.

Not only is that not what he said — it’s not even close.

According to a transcript from CNN, when asked about plans to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, he told CNBC, “Ultimately we will be looking at this issue, [but] It’s not something that I’m focused on at the moment.” Mnuchin said his current priority was bolstering the anti-counterfeiting features built into paper currency.

Here’s CNBC’s own spin on the story:

So here we go again: the Obama administration had eight full years to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 if that really was a priority. But it didn’t happen. People complained the original proposal, which was to put a woman on the $10 — was sexist; who carries tens anymore? That was tantamount to an insult.

Finally, in April of the final year of Obama’s presidency, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew made the big announcement:

In December, it was reported that Lew planned to “release early images of the redesigned $20 featuring Harriet Tubman “in an effort to pressure the Trump Administration away from reversing their plans.'” Nothing like waiting until the last minute.

That’s not very effective leadership, is it; instead, some other pet project no one had mentioned during Obama’s first term, like the removal of Confederate symbols from the Capitol, was dumped onto the Hillary Clinton Donald Trump administration to complete. And if Trump doesn’t pick up and run with Obama’s leftovers, well …

“Takes back recognition of Harriet Tubman?” Does anyone remember anything? The Obama administration just wanted a woman on currency and even put the question out to the public for suggestions (like Beyoncé). It took forever just to settle on Harriet Tubman, and now everyone seems to treat it as though Trump is burning piles of printed twenties that feature her image. All Mnuchin said was is, “We’ll be looking at it.”

When “anti-racism strategist” Tariq Nasheed’s tweet could easily be confused with your straight news headline, there’s a big problem.

Seriously, though; if that’s your feeling, take a good, critical look at the Obama administration and all the progress it promised, and all the progress on which it actually delivered.
