The billionaire real estate developer and former commander-in-chief indicated that his arrest could be as soon as this week. However, Trump has not received any official notification regarding the charges against him. If this happens, he will be the first US president to face criminal charges.

The former president allegedly incited violence with harsh language, “Protest, take back our nation.” Reports indicate that in 2021, Trump has shown he may incite violence to get what he wants.
Trump’s negative stance on cryptocurrency
Former President Trump used his social channels to express his feelings on various topics, including the crypto space. Donald has remained quiet about cryptocurrencies during his presidency, sending only one tweet in his four-year reign.
The former president’s deleted 2019 tweet says:
“I am not a fan of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and their value is very volatile and dependent on a vacuum.”

Trump also noted in the same tweet that unregulated virtual assets can facilitate illegal behavior, including illegal activity and drug dealing.
Later, in 2021, when speaking to Stuart Vaney on Fox Business, he noted that BTC appeared to be a scam. He pointed out that the currency competes with the dollar, but his mission was for the dollar to be the global currency.
Despite the negative attitude of the former president, the former first lady has a completely different opinion. Melania Trump launched the first NFT in 2021.
