Trump Campaign Receives $2 Million in Bitcoin from Billionaire Winklevoss Twins

President Donald Trump’s campaign has just received a huge Bitcoin donation from two prominent figures in the cryptocurrency space.

On Thursday, billionaire twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss announced on social media that they are endorsing Trump’s re-election bid.

In addition, they put their money where their mouth is and donated $1 million each in Bitcoin to Trump’s campaign.

In a post on X on Thursday, Tyler Winklevoss announced his donation before outlining his reasons for voting for Trump.

He also warned that Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has “weaponized multiple government agencies” against cryptocurrency and tech entrepreneurs.

“I just donated $1 million in bitcoin (15.47 BTC) to @realDonaldTrump and will be voting for him in November,” Tyler Winklevoss said.

“Over the past few years, the Biden Administration has openly declared war against crypto,” Winklevoss wrote.

“It has weaponized multiple government agencies to bully, harass, and sue the good actors in our industry in an effort to destroy it.”

“This Administration’s actions have been nothing short of an unprecedented abuse of power wielded entirely for twisted political gain at the complete expense of innovation, the American taxpayer, and the American economy.

“There is nothing the Biden Administration can do or say at this point to pretend otherwise.”

Winklevoss went on to argue that it is not “even remotely open for debate” that Trump is the “pro-Bitcoin, pro-crypto, and pro-business choice.”

Tyler’s twin brother, Cameron, also posted on X that he is endorsing Trump and sending him $1 million in Bitcoin.

“Here’s the TL;DR — President Trump is: Pro-Bitcoin Pro-Crypto Pro-Business,” Cameron posted.

“And he will put an end to the Biden Administration’s war on crypto. Onward!”

The Winklevoss twins famously sued Mark Zuckerberg for stealing their idea for Facebook.

After successfully beating Zuckerberg in the courts, the brothers invested their settlement money in Bitcoin.

As the price of Bitcoin has soared in recent years, the Winklevoss twins have become multi-billionaires and leaders in the crypto space with their company Gemini.

The Winklevoss twins recently attended a San Francisco fundraiser for Trump.

The event brought in north of $12 million, the New York Post reported.

The Biden administration has been accused by some experts of being “behind the 8-ball” on cryptocurrency.

GOP House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) recently accused the Biden admin of abusing its power to unfairly target Bitcoin miners.

The Trump campaign telegraphed its interest in new currencies with a “now accepting crypto” announcement on its website.

Since leaving the White House, Trump has also cast himself as a new technology and media baron, with a paper value of billions on his Trump Media company.

The 45th president and former First Fady Melania Trump have each dabbled in the sale of digital NFTs.

The price of one Bitcoin today stands at around $65,000, marking a meteoric rise in the past few years.

If Trump is -re-elected in November, the economy is likely to come roaring back on the news.

As Such, Bitcoin could soar to new highs.
