It seems that whatever story or incident includes current US president Donald Trump, it is going to get viral and with Bitcoin, it is no different. We all know the facts that in 2019, Trump himself stated that he had no interest in Bitcoins or any sort of Cryptocurrency for that matter and made it quite clear what his thoughts on the topic were. While many supported his actions, there were a few who did not understand why perhaps the most influential man in America would not consider looking into something that is definitely shaping the whole country.
After a while as it happens in all news reports, the story of trump hating on Crypto got old and people stopped discussing it. But now according to his former national security advisor John Bolton in his book that has not yet been published, it seems that Trump urged his Treasury Secretary to “Go after Bitcoin” in mid-2018. There is no way of knowing whether this is true or not but apparently, this was said to induce some sort of leeway against the US-China trade war. This is not the only claim that the book makes and there are other reports in it all against the president of the united states but as far as his link with Bitcoin goes, it is still not proven.
Once this news went viral and reached Trump’s ears, he has hit back on twitter calling the author of the above-mentioned book a liar and a dope. The Justice Department has taken action and the book is to remain being in the unpublished state. What do you think about this topic? What is true and what is not? Is this just the media’s ploy to get a viral story or is some of it true? Where do you stand in Bitcoin and its importance?
