Because of some political issues at the time of Donald Trump XRP faced a lot of difficulties. These issues could be solved by a mutual discussion of both US policy and XRP. Because of the arrogant and prompt decision making, XRP had some trouble in the US market.
But the good news is that This problem is going to be solved very soon as some reputed publishers mentioned it. The newly elected Joe Biden government will be XRP friendly and discussion is already in progress.
If it's all right the price of the XRP will be tripled very soon. If your understanding knocks you so it's a good time to have some XRP in your digital pocket.
