Trump, Former President of the United States, warns about a massive ‘Explosion’ and says that Crypto is ‘Very Dangerous.
In an interview with Maria Bartiromo, Donald Trump spoke out on cryptocurrency, his wife’s non-fungible token project (NFT), and his new social media platform Truth Social. The interview was published Tuesday by Fox Business.
Trump was asked, “What do your thoughts on crypto?” Bartiromo stated that “New York City and Miami are really getting crypto into their financial systems.”
Former U.S. president expressed his opposition to crypto: “Well, it never loved me because I like the dollar. The dollar should be the currency so I wasn’t a fan. It’s getting worse and worse and no one is doing anything to stop it.”
He stressed, “Look, i want a currency called dollar,”
I don’t want all of these other things, and that could lead to an explosion the likes we have never seen. It will make the explosion of big tech seem like it’s just for babies. It’s very dangerous, I believe.
Trump is not a crypto-fanatic. He predicted that crypto-currencies would be “a disaster waiting for it to happen” in August. In June, he called Bitcoin a fraud that requires strict regulation.
Trump was also asked about Melania Trump’s NFT (non-fungible token) venture. Melania Trump last week announced that she is selling an NFT titled “Melania’s Vision” on her newly launched NFT platform. She plans to release NFTs frequently. She released a statement saying that she was proud to announce her new NFT venture, which embodies me passion for the arts and will support my ongoing commitments to children through my Be Best initiative.
Trump commented on his wife’s NFT plans and said that “She’s going great…She got a great imagination.” People love our ex-first lady, that’s what I can attest to. They love her.
Trump stated that his new social media platform Truth Social will be a major competitor to Silicon Valley companies. He previously said that it would be an alternative to Silicon Valley firms that are biased against Trump and other conservative voices. Trump plans to launch Truth Social in the United States early next year.
He was also asked how he would compete with tech giants like Google and Twitter. He replied that “we have no choice” and reiterated his belief that “it’s going be very large.”
