George Soros Calls Donald Trump A Potential Dictator

The U.S. public has had the wool pulled over their eyes by a conman and potential dictator in the shape of President Donald Trump, according to hedge fund billionaire George Soros. Global democracy faces its biggest crisis of recent memory explains the founder of the Open Society Foundations as the promotion of democracy across the planet will be slowed y a Trump Presidency that Soros believes will continue with increasingly divisive social policies that will be used at every opportunity to increase the power of the President and his Administration; George Soros hopes the U.S. government system of checks and balances will be powerful enough to halt the march of right wing politics in the country that has spent much of its history as the most powerful in the world.

Upon winning the Presidential election in November 2016, Donald Trump was ill prepared for the position he was about to undertake as he had initially been involved in building his own brand over actually achieving an election victory on nytimes.com. Soros believes the appointments being made by Donald Trump as his major advisors and cabinet picks are designed to bring disorder to the U.S. and cause major problems for minority groups who will continue to be targeted by an increasingly right wing Administration. Examining the picks made by the incoming President for major positions in the democratic government of the U.S. Soros sees right wing extremists and retired generals in an assembled cabinet on Forbes that is more closely related to that of Russia than its traditional European allies of the U.K. and France.

Minority groups and those who are struggling to have their voices heard in the world have always had their cause taken up by George Soros, who is himself a World War II Holocaust survivor and former refugee. The Hungarian born Soros has been a major supporter of those seeking to gain independence from restrictive regimes, such as the “Solidarity” movement of Poland during the 1970s and 80s, and formed George Soros’ own Open Society Foundations in a bid to help provide an education for young black men at South Africa’s Cape Town University during the Apartheid regime.

In terms of the coming years, Soros believes the eradication of democratic norms in the U.S. will be sped up by Trump claiming his links to dictators and restrictive regimes is based upon his own need to conduct deals that will benefit the U.S. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland George Soros confirmed his belief the Trump Presidency on Business Insider is destined to fail as no would be dictator has taken on such a powerful government as that now seen in the U.S. as institutions within the country will block his attempts to seize any further levels of power.
