The former president has doubled down on his support for Bitcoin, aligning with his self-proclaimed title as the “Crypto President.” Trump mentioned that he wanted all the remaining Bitcoin to be made in the USA, meaning he would like miners in the United States to be empowered to facilitate the mining of the remaining bitcoins.

On June 11th, Trump continued his crypto campaign on his Truth social media platform with pro-Bitcoin messages. The former president assured his supporters of his strong support for Bitcoin. In yesterday’s posts, the former president mentioned that Bitcoin mining would make the United States “Energy Dominant.”

Trump considers Bitcoin mining the “last line of defense”

The U.S. Presidential aspirant criticized President Biden’s “hatred” of Bitcoin in his message to his supporters. He mentioned that the current government’s hatred for Bitcoin and crypto in general gives an unfair advantage to China, Russia, and the Radical Communist Left.

The former president has continued to express his dislike for central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). He mentioned that Bitcoin mining may be the “last line of defense” against CBDCs in his message.

The former president continues to be vocal about CBDCs despite Jerome Powell’s remarks about the state of CDBCs in the United States. The Chair of the Federal Reserve of the United States, Jerome Powell, has been quoted saying, “The U.S. is nowhere near recommending or let alone adopting a central bank digital currency in any form.”

The presumptive Republican candidate delivered the pro-Bitcoin mining message after the meeting with Bitcoin mining executives.
