Freedom Currency’: GOP Unveils Plan For Trump-Branded $500 Bills

Amid Concerns Over Economic Challenges And The Devaluation Of The U.S. Dollar, Republican Lawmakers Have Proposed A Bold Solution: The Introduction Of $500 Federal Reserve Notes Bearing The Portrait Of Former President Donald Trump. Dubbed The “Treasury Reserve Unveiling Memorable Portrait (TRUMP) Act,” The Legislation Aims To Empower Americans With More Tangible Financial Options And Generate Revenue Through Increased Demand For Collectible Currency.

Introduced By Representative Paul Gosar Of Arizona, The Proposal Argues That Higher-Denomination Currency Would Provide Greater Freedom For Americans To Save And Conduct Transactions Without Relying Solely On Digital Banking, Which Raises Privacy And Censorship Concerns. “The Absence Of Large-Denomination Currency Issued By The Treasury Encourages Americans To Rely On Digital Banking, Which Faces Greater Vulnerability To Surveillance And Censorship,” Gosar Stated.

Beyond Practical Considerations, The Legislation Aims To Capitalize On The Enduring Popularity Of The Former President And The Lucrative Collectible Currency Market. Gosar Asserted That Bills Featuring Trump’s Portrait Would Become “Highly Sought After” By Collectors, Generating Additional Revenue For The Government Through Increased Sales Of Numismatic Items.

“Collectors Often Covet Currency With Unique Designs And Historical Significance, And Bills Featuring The Very Popular 45th President Will Attract Considerable Attention From Collectors,” Gosar Argued, Highlighting The Potential Financial Gains For The Treasury.

While The Proposal Faces Significant Hurdles In The Democrat-Controlled Senate And White House, Supporters Argue That The Introduction Of “Trump Bills” Could Provide A Tangible Solution To Economic Woes And Tap Into The Former President’s Enduring Appeal Among Conservatives.

“This Will No Doubt Create A Market For The $500 Trump Bills Far Beyond Their Face Value And Increase The Seigniorage Earnings Of The Government, Thus Increasing Overall Revenues,” Gosar Concluded, Emphasizing The Potential Financial Benefits Of The Legislation.
