Billionaire radical philanthropist George Soros is making a surprising prediction about who will win the 2024 Republican nomination.
The financial guru who pioneered market analytics as an investor has his bet on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
“This could induce Trump, whose narcissism has turned into a disease, to run as a third-party candidate. This would lead to a Democratic landslide and force the Republican Party to reform itself,” Soros said at the 2023 Munich Security Conference.
Soros ripped Trump’s presidency and complimented DeSantis’s style.
“DeSantis is shrewd, ruthless, and ambitious,” said Soros, adding, “He is likely to be the Republican candidate.”
Trump, on other hand, “has turned into a pitiful figure continually bemoaning his loss in 2020. Big Republican donors are abandoning him in droves,” he added.
The mega-rich political activist and campaign donor, who has given millions to left-wing groups and Democratic Party candidates, branded Trump a threat to democracy.
“Trump is a deeply flawed character, a confidence trickster whose narcissism grew into a disease,” he complained. “He feels no commitment to democracy; democracy merely provides him with a stage on which to perform. As president, he was more interested in hobnobbing with dictators than in promoting democratic principles.”
“Trump’s role model was Putin, who amassed a fortune while asserting total control over his country,” he claimed.
Soros in his speech continued to launch unsubstantiated smears against the 45th president and repeated warped political talking points.
“Trump attracted a lot of non-educated white followers, but his biggest backers were the mega-rich — and he certainly delivered for them. First, he cut their taxes. Second, he nominated to the Supreme Court ideologues who embraced an extreme version of the Republican agenda. Third, he brought the Republican Party under his control by threatening those who didn’t swear loyalty to him with a challenge in the primaries,” Soros said.
“Lastly, he encouraged Republican-controlled states to introduce outrageous measures of voter suppression to ensure that his party would remain in power indefinitely. With that program, he was almost reelected in 2020,” he added.
This is an upside-down retelling of history that belies the hard-left agenda of billionaire radicals like George Soros. Trump is the ultimate bogeyman of the left; and by overhyping their criticism of a president who was largely successful in restoring America to peace and prosperity, they hide themselves from scrutiny of their own political agenda.
