Donald Trump firmly opposes the idea of the Federal Reserve creating a central bank digital currency (CBDC) in the United States and vows to "never allow" the creation of such currency if elected.
His strong declaration to "never allow" the issuance of a CBDC reflects concerns about potential implications, such as privacy issues, government control, or disruptions to the existing financial system.
"As your president, I will never allow the creation of a central bank digital currency.
Such a currency would give a federal government, our federal government, the absolute control over your money, they could take your money and you wouldn't even know it was gone.
This would be a dangerous threat to freedom and I will stop it from coming to America", Trump stated during a speech in New Hampshire on January 17.

A former acting director of national intelligence turned potential Republican candidate for governor of California, gleefully seized on an error by Google on Saturday, promising a plethora of executive orders after the search giant listed him as President of the United States since 2021. The information appeared to come directly from Wikipedia, which is automatically used by Google in searches where it is then often stated as fact.
The military is in control? White hats are in control of Google? You decide...

Judy Shelton interview on gold standard:
"I like the idea of a gold backed currency, it could even be done in a Cryptocurrency sort of way.
A unified money system, so when you talk about the international marketplace, everyone is playing on a level monetary playing field.
I don't see it so much as returning [to the gold standard], more like 'back to the future.' I think that what a gold standard stands for is monetary discipline for its own sake. Money is supposed to be a unit of account, a reliable measure and a dependable store of value. It really shouldn't be subject to who's the chairman of the Federal Reserve.
How can a dozen [...] people meeting eight times a year, decide what the cost of capital should be versus some kind of organically, market supply determined rate? The Fed is not omniscient. They don't know what the right rate should be. How could anyone? [...] If the success of capitalism depends on someone being smart enough to know what the rate should be on everything we're doomed. We might as well resurrect Gosplan.
A linked system could allow currency convertibility by individuals (as under a gold standard) or foreign central banks (as under Bretton Woods). Either way, it could redress inflationary pressures.
