The U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said, “He is not a fan of cryptocurrencies, and if Facebook wants to become the bank, then Facebook may need a banking charter for it.”

In a series of tweet, President Trump on twitter tweeted that “I’m not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, but an Unregulated Crypto Assets whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air and can be used to facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity.”

Tweeting more on this, Trump said, “If Facebook and other companies want to become a bank, then they must seek a new Banking Charter and follow all Banking regulations, just like other banks.”

Adding to the tweet, Trump also said, “There is only one real currency in the United States, which is stronger than ever, and by far it is most dominant currency anywhere in the world, which is called the United States Dollar.”
