US Presidential Candidate Will Support Bitcoin If He Wins


The nephew of the 35th President of the United States and a participant in the current election race, Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., in an interview with The New York Post, outlined his political plans for the first cryptocurrency and the financial independence of citizens.

The nominee vowed to adopt solutions that “support bitcoin and freedom of transaction, allowing people to manage their wallets, nodes and passwords.”

He specified that he would create a light regulatory environment in the US, with only “strict controls to prevent money laundering.”

Kennedy spoke out against the digital dollar. In his opinion, it carries with it the risk of repressive control and can be misused.

“I oppose central bank digital currencies because they are tools of control and oppression, and they will certainly be abused,” the politician explained.

He called the search for ways to globally regulate artificial intelligence (AI) technologies as another important problem. Referring to the statements of billionaire Elon Musk, he noted that “AI will first take away the work, and then kill us.”

In April, Kennedy said that bitcoin and other digital assets act as an alternative to the traditional financial system.

In May, the presidential candidate began accepting donations in the first cryptocurrency and called it “a symbol of democracy and freedom” during the Bitcoin 2023 conference. In addition, he criticized US regulators for the “war on cryptocurrencies” that led to a banking crisis in the country.

Recall that in June, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong called the upcoming US elections a key moment for crypto regulation.

Earlier, support for Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. was expressed by the head of Block Jack Dorsey.
