Donald Trump's Campaign Just Made a Historic Announcement

On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump’s campaign broke new ground by announcing that he would be the first major presidential candidate to accept cryptocurrency donations.

The announcement came in a press release from Trump’s campaign.

“Today, President Trump’s campaign has launched a fundraising page that provides any federally permissible donor the ability to give – through its joint fundraising committees – using any cryptocurrency accepted through the Coinbase Commerce product,” the campaign stated.

The press release concluded:

“This addition to President Trump’s already groundbreaking digital fundraising operation marks the first time a major party Presidential nominee has embraced cryptocurrency for donations. Contribution limits and disclosure requirements for crypto donations will follow Federal Election Commission regulations.

“Starting today, people wanting to make federally permissible donations to the Trump campaign with crypto can do so at: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/crypto.”

The website reveals that the former president is accepting eight different types of digital currency, including Bitcoin, XRP, and USD Coin.

“Demonstrating President Trump’s success as a champion of American freedom and innovation, we proudly offer you a chance to contribute to the campaign with cryptocurrency,” the website states.

Trump’s crypto donation page adds, “Saving our nation from Biden’s failures requires your support. As Biden piles regulations and red tape on all of us, President Trump stands ready to embrace new technologies that will Make America Great Again.”

This announcement comes as Trump’s fundraising efforts have gained significant momentum.

According to The Associated Press, President Joe Biden’s campaign raised $51 million in April.

While that is a considerable sum, Biden’s campaign had been consistently raising substantial amounts for months – much more than Trump’s.

However, as reported by the AP, while Biden raised just over $51 million last month, Trump brought in $76 million.

Biden’s donations for April also saw a significant drop compared to the previous month.

In March, Democrats raised $90 million in their efforts to retain the White House.

According to the RealClearPolitics average released on Tuesday, Trump led Biden nationally by 1.1 points, with 46.7 percent to Biden’s 45.6 percent.

A Harvard-Harris poll from last week showed Trump with a six-point lead, well beyond the survey’s two-point margin of error.
