If you look up the word “shady” in the dictionary, odds are you’ll see a picture of George Soros there. Google the term “what does a Batman villain look like” and you’ll probably see his picture pop up as well.
If you aren’t familiar with Soros, he’s a Hungarian billionaire who is basically like the liberal version of the Koch brothers. Except, unlike the Koch brothers, he doesn’t use his money for good. He pumps his money into radical leftist groups like Antifa.
From The Daily Caller:
Major left-wing foundations have given millions of dollars to a leading anti-Trump “resistance” group, a new report reveals.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Ford Foundation and the Open Society Foundation have channeled millions of dollars to the Center for Community Change, according to 2015 tax documents obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.
The documents provide a rare glimpse into the relationship between big progressive donors and the left-wing activists who have mobilized against President Trump and other Republican lawmakers. As a 501(c)3 organization, the center isn’t required to publicly disclose the source and nature of its donations.
He’s not a good guy. Let’s just leave it at that.
World leaders from all across the world are descending on the small town of Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum and Soros decided to show up as well. Knowing that Trump’s visit to Davos was big news, Soros took it upon himself to issue a couple threats to the president of the United States.
Here’s what he had to say.
On Thursday, far-left billionaire George Soros, who is the financial backbone of the Democratic Party, attacked President Donald Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Soros, who spent millions backing failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, claimed that Trump was leading the world to nuclear war and that he is trying to establish a dictatorship in the United States, CNBC reported.
“Indeed, the United States is set on a course towards nuclear war by refusing to accept that [North] Korea has become a nuclear power,” Soros said. “This creates a strong incentive for North Korea to develop its nuclear capacity with all possible speed, which in turn may induce the United States to use its nuclear superiority pre-emptively, in effect to start a nuclear war to prevent a nuclear war, obviously a self-contradictory strategy.”
Soros claimed, without evidence, that Trump is trying to institute a “mafia state” in the U.S., but can’t “because the Constitution and the institutions and a vibrant society won’t allow it.” He also said that he is using his Open Society Foundation, a radical left-wing organization to which he just gave $18 billion, to “protect the democratic achievements of the past.”
“I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world,” the billionaire investor said in a speech from Davos, Switzerland. “But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner.” He expects a Democratic “landslide” in the 2018 elections.
Soros, the 87-year-old chairman of Soros Fund Management, said his Open Society Foundations are spending more than half of their budget “closer to home” rather than in the developing world, in an effort to protect democracy. While he said the strength of institutions will help prevent Trump from succeeding, Soros counted nuclear war and climate change as greater threats to civilization.
Trump is going to disappear huh? Lovely.
Soros was wrong about 2016. He will likely be wrong about 2020.
However, it’s important that Americans keep their eyes on what this guy does with his money.
Odds are it won’t be good.
