Any truth to Ripple / Trump rumors?

Recommended Posts

First of all Trump is - The Third Greatest President the United States has ever had!! 

I read a lot of crypto articles that are just silly. Honestly - how coul XRP could combat BTC - they are completely different, also I'm sure the government would create their own "coin" rather than adopt anyone else's.

Finally, a reputable news source. Thanks!

Yes, a reputable source. Its still pretty vague... “appears” “suggests”. Im not sure how to take it other than keep watching.

There were several articles today regarding Ripple being in talks with the Trump Administration regarding adoption of XRP. Although none of these articles were from reputable news sources (Ethereum Word, Crypto Daily, etc). I don't want to get into any political discussions, but it seems like if this were true it would be great news for XRP. Any thoughts?

Forbes is fairly reputable

Let’s be honest it’s not always a good idea in the end to have our currency USD as world reserve. Trump wants a level playing field, XRPL is a level playing field, and it truthfully can’t be manipulated by any one entity for their own gain at others expense. Trump is a nationalist he might go back to gold USD domestically and then use XRP as world reserve.

Ripple knows what buttons to push at the Trump Circus.  Good move.

Did you miss the part where I said that Cory and Larry Kudlow both worked at CNBC? I think you can easily make a leap in logic with that statement I made.

There are members on the Ripple board of directors who are as close as they can get to some of the worlds most well-known political figures relating to busines mathers. Ken Kurson is a close friend of Jared Kushner and was also part of Trumps campaign.He wrote some of Trumps speeches.

Gene Sperling was Bill Clinton and Barack Obamas national economic advisor, and also part of the Hillary Campaign.

Anja Manuel has connections to Condaleeza Rice.

Susan Athey has been the chief economist of Microsoft among other critical roles.

A massive source of conspiracies, but I seriously doubt these people would take part in crashing the international economy.

But only Larry Kudlow has been calling out China, whereas the others haven't.

Seems like every day this trump story gets bigger and bigger.

Tomorrow we'll have a stories about Trump staff leaking to the meadia that they constantly sees him refreshing coinmarketcap.com to get the latest XRP price.

In two days from now well have news saying that @XRPTrump on Twitter is really Donald Trump himself.

In three days from now we'll have news saying that Donald Trump is sending XRP over to CHINA to negotiate with them!
