Press Secretary Sanders Confirms White House is Watching Bitcoin

White House
Think you’ve got problems? Well, here’s another one: the White House is keeping a close eye on digital currencies - and that includes bitcoin. Do you know why this is a problem? It’s because this means the White House is trying to find a way to control the decentralized monetary system. On Thursday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House Press Secretary, announced during a press conference that bitcoin is “something that is being monitored by our team.” Her statement comes after a Buzzfeed reporter asked her whether or not Trump believes the currency should have more regulatory attention from the government. Sanders added, “In terms of specific briefings and announcements on it, I don’t have anything that I can share with you right now.” She also said Homeland Security has talked to President Trump about the matter recently. “Tom Bossert, with the Homeland Security team, an advisor to the president, has brought this up in a meeting earlier this week,” Sanders said.”I know this is something he is keeping an eye on.” When asked about Sanders’ press conference, billionaire hedge fund manager Mike Novogratz told Fox Business that “Ms. Sanders probably had prepared for the question and I’m sure Homeland Security is looking at it, the Treasury has looked at it, the Fed has looked at it.” While Trump has never actually talked about bitcoin publicly, we do know that he has a few pro-bitcoin contacts in his black book.
