Past statements from Sam Bankman-Fried have stressed that FTX.US was separate from FTX and in good financial health. 

"FTX US, the US based exchange that accepts Americans, was not financially impacted by this shitshow. It's 100% liquid. Every user could fully withdraw (modulo gas fees etc). Updates on its future coming," Bankman-Fried wrote in a thread earlier Thursday.
