Investing. com – Whoever believes that the man still has the power to make such shocking statements, it seems that they have become a trait that runs like blood in the veins, the state of controversy and clamor that always accompanies the statements of the most dangerous man in the past years inside the White House. In an interview with Fox Business released today, former US President Donald Trump was asked about his views on the health of Wall Street markets, the progress the current administration has made, as well as the potential of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market.
But the US President and his administration are among the staunch enemies of digital currencies, as he saw it as a tool for money laundering and terrorist financing, and did not consider it a valid financial performance. In response to the last question, the former president said, “I love US currency, but I think cryptocurrency could be a disaster waiting to happen.”
The former US president added: “It may be fake, who knows what it is? Cryptocurrency is definitely something people don’t know much about.” Trump said protecting American sovereignty should be a first priority, rather than uplifting a stagnant financial system and taking advantage of the massive benefits that cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies have to offer.
It seems that digital currencies did not care about the statements of former US President Donald Trump, especially since the position of the current administration of President Joe Biden, even if it was against it as well, is moderate in terms of the US administration’s desire to legalize the status of cryptocurrencies in the US economy. President Biden has named former Commodity Futures Trading Commission, or CFTC, chairman Gary Gensler as the new head of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, one of the most respected experts on the cryptocurrency market.
