Plus the 89-year old Open Society Foundations head lashed out at President Donald Trump inside a World Economic Forum event in Davos, Switzerland.
“When his fantasy of becoming president became a reality,” the progressive provider proclaimed, “This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease.”
But he acknowledged of political rival Trump, “He has an instinct of how they are going to respond to his actions.” Plus added, “This makes the tasks of the Democrats who impeached him extremely difficult.”
“The trial in the Senate is setting up to be strictly pro forma,” Soros offered while noting that Republicans appear to be in lockstep with the president and unlikely to vote to remove him from office.
Last year he said regarding the United States and China: “Regrettably, President Trump seems to be following a different course: Make concessions to China and declare victory while renewing his attacks on U.S. allies. This is liable to undermine the U.S. policy objective of curbing China’s abuses and excesses.”
President Xi Jinping of China was “trying to exploit Trump’s weaknesses,” Soros told the gathering. He also accused Xi of using “artificial intelligence to have total control of his people.”
President Trump touted his America First economic policies as a model for global prosperity this year.
“A nation’s highest duty is to its own citizens,” Trump announced. Then stated, “Honoring this truth is the only way to build faith and confidence in the market system. Only when governments put their own people first will people be fully invested in their national futures.”
Along with, “A pro-worker, pro-citizen, pro-family agenda demonstrates how a nation can thrive when its communities, its companies, its government work together for the good of the whole nation.”
The president declared, “These alarmists always demand the same thing – absolute power to dominate, transform, and control every aspect of our lives,” the president stated. “We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world.”
