Would-be-Dictator Trump is Going to Fail: George Soros
nsnbc : Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos the eve of the inauguration of Donald Trump, billionaire investor, philanthropist and Clinton supporter George Soros claimed that the would-be-dictator Donald Trump is going to fail.
George Soros who supported Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton denounced Donald Trump as a “would be dictator” and warned that Trump will be “gearing up for a trade war”.
Soros warned that a trade war would have “a very far reaching effect in Europe and other parts of the world”. The statement was welcomed in China, with Chinese State media stressing Soros’s statement.
Trump has repeatedly stressed that U.S. corporations who outsource jobs to China would have to pay fair tariffs or taxes, and that he aimed at returning jobs to the USA.
Soros, apparently bitter, claimed that “the would-be dictator (Trump) didn’t expect to win”. Soros reiterated “I’m personally convinced that he (Trump) is going to fail. … not because of people like me who would like him to fail, but because the ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory”.
It’s noteworthy that over 60% of Americans say the most important thing for Trump to do during his first two years would be to focus on strengthening the U.S. economy and to create jobs.
However, Soros’ words “he (Trump) is going to fail. … not because of people like me who would like him to fail, but because the ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory” might be understood as an implied threat, considering that Soros made his fortune by betting against the British pound, ruining the British economy which needed years to recover.
Soros noted that the financial markets will “not do very well” due to the uncertainty caused by the Trump administration. “Right now uncertainty is at the peak,” Soros said, adding “It’s impossible to predict exactly how Trump is going to act.”
The United States is holding the quadrennial presidential inauguration ceremony on Friday, January 20, 2017 when Trump will be sworn in as the country’s 45th president. The billionaire philanthropist is sponsoring NGOs on a global level.
While some of them have done good work with regard to human rights and other issues, Soros is also notorious for his involvement in so-called color-revolutions aimed at times violent regime-change.
