Cryptocurrencies are dangerous according to Donald Trump
Unlike his wife, Donald Trump has spoken out against cryptocurrencies on numerous occasions. In October 2021, the former president expressed his concerns about bitcoin, believing he could compromise the independence of the dollar and stagnate the country’s financial system. In a recent interview with Fox, Donald Trump said the cryptocurrency collapse could be far bigger than the tech bubble.
“I never liked cryptocurrency because I like having the dollar, I like that the only currency is the dollar. Look, I want a coin called the dollar, I don’t want to have all these other currencies, and there might be a bubble burst someday, which we’ve never seen. The tech bubble will look like a baby thing in comparison. I think cryptocurrency is a very dangerous thing“, did he declare.
