President Trump is aware of cryptocurrency situation - White House press secretary

On a recent briefing with the representatives of the press, Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, confirmed that Donald Trump is monitoring the situation with cryptocurrencies and is aware of the key events thanks to Tom Bossert and the homeland security team. For example, the issue was discussed between him and Trump during the last time they met each other.

Whatever Trump thinks himself on the matter, Sarah Sanders chose not to retell. “In terms of specific briefings and announcements on it, I don't have anything that I can share with you right now but would be happy to follow back up with you,” she said to the journalist as seen from the briefing transcript posted on the official White House website.

We, however, may safely assume that the 45th President of the United States does not intend to do something harmful to cryptocurrencies, as he could have easily written his opinion on Twitter by now. As one can see, Mr. Trump tweets in a heartbeat when he needs to tell about something he does not like. Another, more serious reason: his nominee, who might become the leader of the Federal Reserve soon, recently told that digital coins are still not big enough to influence American dollar and financial system. And, lastly, members of Trump’s team have repeatedly told that they are going to try to implement blockchain in the governmental work as soon as possible.
