Trump says he will ‘never allow’ central bank digital currency if elected president

by Matt Lamb

Donald Trump vowed to oppose central bank digital currency and to protect cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin, from Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and ‘her goons.’

(LifeSiteNews) — Former President Donald Trump said he will keep far-left Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s “goons” away from cryptocurrency during a recent speech at the Libertarian Party’s national convention.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, made the comments on Saturday, May 25, at the convention in Washington, D.C.

After saying he would stop Democrats’ Green New Deal, Trump said to applause that he “will also stop Joe Biden’s crusade to crush crypto. We’re going to stop it.”

“I will ensure that the future of crypto and the future of Bitcoin will be made in the U.S.A., not driven overseas. I will support the right to self-custody,” he said.

“To the nation’s 50 million crypto holders, I say this: With your vote, I will keep Elizabeth Warren and her goons away from your Bitcoin,” the former president said.

“And I will never allow the creation of a central bank digital currency,” Trump said to loud applause.

Trump was seeking the Libertarian Party’s support for his nomination, as was Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The party instead chose Chase Oliver, a homosexual who supports open borders and said he doesn’t find anything wrong with drag queen shows targeting children, among other liberal viewpoints.

Sen. Warren has pushed for further regulation of cryptocurrency, citing alleged concerns about foreign adversaries such as Iran and North Korea using it for their transactions. However, the Blockchain Association, a crypto trade group, criticized the Massachusetts Democrat’s “Digital Asset Anti-Money Laundering Act” in a letter, signed by national security experts, saying that Warren’s plan would drive “the majority of the digital asset industry overseas.”
