Liberal billionaire George Soros recently turned some heads when he made statements eerily similar to those made by President Donald Trump.
While attending a private event at the World Economic Forum, Soros blasted China, calling China and President Xi Jinping the largest threat Americans are facing today.
While the Trump administration appeared to have a great relationship with China at first, that soon ended.
Once China started to manipulate North Korea, it became quite apparent that Trump was going to have deal with the communist nation in a sterner manner.
Trump soon slapped the nation with massive tariffs.
Trump and Xi then went back and forth strong-arming each other until the two leaders came to an agreement to suspend tariffs for a short period of time in an effort to get a new deal worked out.
The mainstream media hasn’t reported any new developments in the negotiations in recent weeks, but with Soros’ recent comments, the issue is back in the headlines again.
Will the old adage, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” ring true in this case?
Probably not, as Trump and Soros are still very far apart in their beliefs.
While they both see China as a threat, it for far different reasons.
Soros promotes an open society, mostly because he knows he can pull the strings with his wealth and influence.
Trump sees the country as a threat to American capitalism and manufacturing.
It became even more apparent that these two are likely to never see eye to eye as Soros continued his comments later at the dinner event, where he was critical of the president.
“Instead of letting ZTE and Huawei off lightly, it needs to crack down on them,” Soros said. “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.”
Soros added: This is liable to undermine the U.S. policy objective of curbing China’s abuses and excesses.”
Soros’ comments come while Trump has made it quite clear he will not stand for China’s tactics as well as what are believed to be monitoring efforts outside the borders of the country.
Make no mistake about it, Soros has only one thing in mind with his criticisms of China: furthering his own socialist agenda.
At the same time, Trump is working to protect the welfare of all Americans. Now, that’s an agenda we can get behind.
