President Donald Trump just returned from participating in the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he shared how his America First policy agenda has spurred on an economic boom that should serve as an example for other nations.
One of the global elitists in attendance at Davos was leftist billionaire and progressive megadonor George Soros, who staunchly opposes President Trump’s agenda. Soros harshly criticized Trump on Thursday, claiming that the “fate of the world” rests upon the outcome of the 2020 election, in which Trump is seeking to remain in office for another term, Breitbart reported.
Soros: “Fate of the world” rests on 2020 election
The 89-year-old Soros is the veritable epitome of globalism and through his Open Society Foundation has spent millions to construct a progressive and “open” globalist society, which stands in stark contrast to the nationalistic America First policies espoused by President Trump.
Thus, it was not the least bit surprising to hear Soros take sharp aim at Trump both personally and policy-wise during a private dinner he hosted on Thursday in Davos, CNBC reported.
Soros, who has spent millions, if not billions, of his own fortune over the years backing Democrats and progressive causes, declined to delve into his thoughts on the current Democratic primary race. Instead, he addressed the upcoming 2020 election, upon which the “fate of the world” rests — an obvious warning against the re-election of Trump.
Speaking more directly about the president for whom he has nothing but enmity, Soros attacked Trump as “a con man and a narcissist, who wants the world to revolve around him.”
“When [Trump’s] fantasy of becoming president became a reality,” Soros said of Trump, that only made things even worse. He added, “This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease.”
Soros acknowledged Trump’s ability to shake off the incessant attacks against him from Democrats, the media, and the left in general.
“He has an instinct of how they are going to respond to his actions,” Soros said. “This makes the tasks of the Democrats who impeached him extremely difficult.”
As for the ongoing impeachment trial itself, Soros appeared to dismiss it as largely meaningless, given the fact that it remains highly unlikely that a two-thirds majority of the Senate — which by necessity would have to include at least 20 Republicans — would vote to convict and remove Trump from office.
Soros wants a progressive leftist
As noted, Soros didn’t talk about the Democrats running for the nomination to challenge Trump in the upcoming election during that private dinner, but he did go on record in October of 2019 as praising — though not officially endorsing — Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “the most qualified to be president” among those who were running.
There is no question that Soros despises Trump and would like nothing better than to see him replaced by a progressive leftist as president. And it’s not just a wish — Soros will likely spend tens of millions of his own dollars to try and make it into a reality.
