The cat’s out of the bag — George Soros just revealed who he considers to be the most qualified candidate to be the next U.S. president: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
“She has emerged as the clear-cut person to beat,” he said in a New York Times interview on Friday. “I don’t take a public stance, but I do believe that she is the most qualified to be president.”
Soros said that he was not endorsing Warren, but would work with whoever ended up being the nominee. “I don’t express my views generally because I have to live with whoever the electorate chooses,” he said.
Soros is a billionaire who uses his fortune to support many leftist causes across the globe and has spent enormous sums to get Democrats elected to office in the U.S.
The 89-year-old Soros told the Times to say he was proud of his enemies, including President Donald Trump and many conservatives. Mainstream media outlets call many of the reports about Soros “conspiracy theories” and claim that his Open Society Foundation supports building “democracies” around the world.
What OSF actually does is support left-wing socialist policies in more than 20 countries, including the U.S. where Soros has given more than half a billion dollars to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and just about every other left-wing organization it can find.
While not redistributing his own wealth as much as he thinks everyone else should, Soros supports governments giving out more welfare, making illegal immigrants citizens, and letting criminals out of prison.
Support of Warren
It’s no surprise that Soros supports Warren’s candidacy for president, given that she wants to impose all kinds of new taxes on Americans, give away free college, forgive student loans, and nationalize health care.
What I wonder, though, is whether Soros really thinks Warren can beat Trump in an election.
Although early polls seemed to indicate that Warren could beat Trump, the most recent numbers were neck and neck, which to me indicates a Trump victory is likely since polls are almost all skewed to the Democrat until right before it comes time to vote.
Warren’s candidacy has other problems besides poll numbers, though, since a number of high profile business and Wall Street donors have said they won’t back Warren’s candidacy because of her anti-capitalist and anti-business platform.
If Warren does get the nomination, it will be interesting to see whether liberal donors stick to their guns or fold under the pressure to oppose Trump.
