Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday he’s reconsidering an Obama administration plan for a new $20 bill that would swap out a portrait of former President Andrew Jackson for famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Mnuchin said he would base his decision on anti-counterfeiting measures, but told CNBC reporters, “It’s not something I’m focused on at the moment.”
