Another crypto-friendly US president is Nikki Haley. However, Nikki failed to talk about her stance on Bitcoin in the recent days but in the past, she criticized the US securities regulatory body over a bad regulatory approach & failure to handle the FTX bankruptcy-like cases. 

US presidential candidate Marianne Willamsois also Bitcoin-friendly. In 2022, she opposed the Canadian government’s crypto ban rules.

Here no one can forget Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who confirmed that he will support Bitcoin-friendly policies in the US if he is elected, during a Twitter space discussion with Elon Musk.
