Donald Trump calls cryptocurrencies “dangerous” even as Melania launches NFT

The former U.S. President is still against cryptocurrency, but his wife just launched Solana NFT, which can only be bought with cryptocurrency. Former U.S. President Donald Trump again criticized cryptocurrency in an interview with Fox Business this week, calling it a “very dangerous thing”, according to Decrypt.co.

Curiously, his comments come just days after his wife, former first lady Melania Trump, launched her first NFT –crypto token, which represents ownership of digital artwork. Melania's NFT is on the Solana blockchain and can currently only be purchased for SOL cryptocurrency. Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo asked the former president about his wife's NFT initiative, to which he replied: “She'll make it work. She has a great imagination”. He was then asked about his broader perspective on cryptocurrency. “I never liked it because I like having a dollar” –Trump responded. I've never been a big fan, but it's getting bigger and bigger, and nobody's doing anything about it”. I want our currency to be called the dollar”. Trump first shared his views on cryptocurrencies as president in July 2019, tweeting: “I am not a fan of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which are not money and their value is very volatile and based on air. Unregulated crypto-assets can facilitate illegal behavior, including drug dealing and other illegal activities.#8221
