Just when you thought that it was safe to get back into presidential politics, the great liberal kingmaker returns to the public forum.
George Soros, the liberal Hungarian billionaire who has spent a massive chunk of his fortune attempting to turn the world hard to the left, was bound to pop up in the 2020 US presidential race sooner or later. After all, this is a man who unabashedly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, and Obama before her.
Also, it seems rather apparent that he holds a great deal of disdain for Donald Trump.
“Even in the United States, a confidence trickster like Trump can be elected president and undermine democracy from within,” Soros told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica. “But in the U.S. you have a great tradition of checks and balances and established rules. And above all, you have the Constitution. So I am confident that Trump will turn out to be a transitory phenomenon, hopefully ending in November.”
And that’s not all…
“Donald Trump would like to be a dictator,” Soros told the Independent. “But he cannot be one because there is a constitution in the United States that people still respect. And it will prevent him from doing certain things. That does not mean that he will not try, because he is literally fighting for his life.”
“I will also say that I have put my faith in Trump to destroy himself, and he has exceeded my wildest expectations,” he added.
Soros is believed to have spent more than $50 million already on the 2020 election.
