The Corporate Philanthropist, George Soros’ Views on the Present Global Situation

George Soros is a multi-billionaire investor and hedge fund manager with a benevolent nature. George Soros is a philanthropic individual of the corporate world with strong moral views related to the current situations in the world, particularly the United States.

An online article released by Portia Crowe through the Business Insider on the 19th of January, 2017, reported that George Soros had made a recent statement expressing his concerns over the future of America and the rest of the world with the President-Elect of the United States, Donald Trump. He had restated his belief that he is a deceptive leader on a journey to be a dictator for his nation. This statement was made on the Thursday of that week at an event in Davos, Switzerland that held the prestigious World Economic Forum on Politico. Soros expressed Trump’s form of government to be a “mafia state.” He expressed concern over an uncertain future with Trump as his policies appear to be incongruous with each other. He believes Trump’s actions are unpredictable as his policies were rather formed by his advisors than himself who appeared to be more enthusiastic about building his personal brand. Despite his strong apprehension over a failing president and a failing nation, George Soros believes that the worst case scenario will be averted with the strong institutions of the United States still in existence today.

In a recent article posted by the Business Insider on the 24th of January, 2017, George Soros himself had shared his best wishes with the world that he believes is in grave “trouble” due to Trump’s victory on discoverthenetworks.org in the recent election of the US. He mentions that the world is growing closer to adopting a closed society rather than the open society history had once battled and won over. Being a holocaust surviving Jewish individual who was once persecuted, George Soros defined an open society to have a leader who would protect the best wishes and welfares of his voters while a closed society to have a leader who would manipulate his voters into fulfilling his personal wishes and his supreme wellbeing. He expressed discontentment in finding that the elite leaders who were once elected to have disappointed their voters to such an extent that they had to end up voting for Trump in major numbers on Snopes. Soros expressed disappointment that the voters seem to display a loss of hope in regards to democracy and instead opt for a potential dictator like Trump. Still, he believed that the voters in America would awaken democracy soon when they realize the actual scenario with Trump in power.

George Soros had pledged over $10 million recently to battle the rapidly growing hate crimes in the United States. He believes Trump’s recent emergence of power was the key stimulator of the recent unfavorable situation in the US.
