Liberal billionaire George Soros is infamously known for puling strings and controlling many things behind the scenes of American politics. There is even speculation that teen activist Greta Thunberg is one of his little paid puppets.
On Thursday, Soros allegedly gave warning that the "fate of the world" will be determined by the 2020 election. He also bashed President Trump at a private dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“When his fantasy of becoming president became a reality,” Soros said of Trump, “This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease.” He went on to call him a "con man" and a "narcissist".
Soros, who has yet to endorse a 2020 Democrat candidate, then said that this year’s election will decide the “fate of the world,” CNBC reports. In October, the billionaire argued White House contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the “most qualified to be president,” but stopped short of formally throwing his support behind her.
This, of course, is not the first time the hedge fund manager has taken aim at President Trump at the World Economic Forum. Last year, Soros criticized the president’s negotiating style against China, which culminated in the signing of a phase one trade agreement last Wednesday.
“Regrettably, President Trump seems to be following a different course: Make concessions to China and declare victory while renewing his attacks on U.S. allies,” the 89-year-old founder of the progressive advocacy organization Open Society Foundations said, “This is liable to undermine the U.S. policy objective of curbing China’s abuses and excesses.”
At this year’s event, Soros also lambasted Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping for his government’s use of a totalitarian social credit scoring system on Chinese citizens. Xi is using “artificial intelligence to have total control of his people,” Soros warned. He also mused that China’s president is “trying to exploit” President Trump on trade.
These remarks follow President Trump’s speech before the World Economic Forum, in which he touted his America First economic policies as a model for global prosperity.
“A nation’s highest duty is to its own citizens,” President Trump said. “Honoring this truth is the only way to build faith and confidence in the market system. Only when governments put their own people first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”
“A pro-worker, pro-citizen, pro-family agenda demonstrates how a nation can thrive when its communities, its companies, its government work together for the good of the whole nation,” he added.
“These alarmists always demand the same thing – absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives,” Trump added, “We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world.”
Soros has also claimed that Facebook is conspiring to re-elect Trump. I think that's ridiculous considering it is a very liberal platform.
