Overwhelming Pro-Trump Posts: Are They Legit?

There have been a lot of pro-Trump posts on this sub recently. Many of these posts claim that Trump is the “bitcoin messiah.” My question is this: How can people believe the lies of this man? What makes you think he’s a pro-crypto candidate? Is it because someone made NFTs out of AI-generated images glorifying Trump? (Newsflash, that was just another one of his grifts, like many others since the 80s.) Is it because he said something about being pro-crypto? Well, Trump says a lot of things, and if you look closely, you’ll see how few of them are true.

Are Russian Bots Behind the Posts?

I have to assume that the people posting these things are Russian bots. It gets tiresome seeing this wannabe con man flooding this sub with nonsense. I’d rather be mad about politicians who are actually stifling crypto than see people fall for Trump’s lies about being pro-crypto. He isn’t. And he isn’t fighting for the poor. He’s fighting for his own pockets. Not yours.

Trump’s Real Opinion on Bitcoin

Trump has frequently called Bitcoin a “scam” and said it competes with the U.S. dollar. In a 2021 interview, Trump said, “Bitcoin, it just seems like a scam. I don’t like it because it’s another currency competing against the dollar.”

Trump’s Motivations: Money and Power

Trump cares about making money and gaining power. He recognizes what will get him money (like working the NFT bubble) and what will get him power (giving lip service to crypto). He has no intention of doing anything positive for crypto. His last administration was very antagonistic towards it. He will say anything for a vote. Remember, he used to support Universal healthcare.

Crypto Endorsement: A Game Changer?

“Donald Trump’s endorsement of cryptocurrency could significantly alter the landscape for digital assets, especially niche sectors like meme coins,” said an expert. “As a platform at the forefront of crypto staking, we are keenly observing these developments to understand how they could affect our users and the broader market.”

The Significance of Trump’s Crypto Acceptance

With the 2024 US Presidential election on the horizon, Trump’s decision to accept crypto donations marks a pivotal moment for the crypto industry. This industry has been seeking greater legitimacy and acceptance within mainstream financial systems. This move not only legitimizes the use of digital currencies in political campaigns but also positions crypto at the center of public and regulatory discourse.

Crypto Market Resurgence

The announcement comes at a time when the crypto market is seeing a resurgence, with several altcoins hitting new all-time highs earlier in the year. As market dynamics evolve, Trump’s pro-crypto stance could catalyze further growth and acceptance of cryptocurrencies, especially lesser-known coins, which have been gaining traction among investors.

Trump’s Recent Pro-Crypto Actions

Donald J. Trump tightened his recent embrace of crypto today, posting on social media, “I am very positive and open minded to cryptocurrency companies and all things related to this new and burgeoning industry,” as both sides in the upcoming presidential election appear to be seeking to win over pro-crypto voters.

“Our country must be the leader in the field, there is no second place,” Trump posted on Truth Social before his address at the Libertarian National Convention in Washington, D.C., later today.

Attacks on Rivals and Pro-Crypto Voters

Trump then took a shot at his rival: “Crooked Joe Biden, on the other hand, the worst president in the history of our country, wants it to die a slow and painful death.”

Warming Sentiment Toward Crypto in Washington

The sentiment toward crypto has noticeably warmed in Washington since Trump has sought to woo pro-crypto voters. First, the former president made pro-crypto comments earlier this month at a Mar-a-Lago dinner. Then this past Tuesday, Trump’s presidential campaign began accepting crypto donations, making good on his pledge to become the first major party candidate to embrace bitcoin, ether, and other digital currencies.

Changing Attitudes Toward Crypto Regulation

Following Trump’s pro-crypto rhetoric and actions, the Biden administration’s opposition to crypto, as well as the traditionally crypto-adverse Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), appear to have softened. Last Wednesday, the White House issued a statement expressing its opposition to the House of Representatives passing a crypto market structure bill, but Biden didn’t threaten a veto. The House proceeded to approve the measure, which now heads to the Senate. Then on Thursday, the ether exchange traded funds (ETF) took a major step toward becoming available in the U.S. after the SEC approved key regulatory filings. Such an approval was seen as extremely unlikely just a month ago.

Trump’s actions and statements have made a significant impact on the crypto industry and political landscape. Whether or not he is truly pro-crypto, his influence is undeniable.
