While speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, far-left billionaire George Soros issued what appeared by some to be a thinly-veiled threat against President Trump, saying the administration is a “temporary phenomenon” that “will disappear in 2020 or even sooner.”
“Clearly I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world,” Soros said. “But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020 or even sooner.”
He also claimed, without any evidence whatsoever, that Trump is trying to institute a “mafia state” in the U.S. in order to suppress individual rights but can’t “because the Constitution and the institutions and a vibrant society won’t allow it.”
“Not only the survival of open society but the survival of our entire civilization is at stake,” he added. “The rise of leadership such as Kim Jong Un in North Korea and Donald Trump in the United States have much to do with this.”
Soros, CNBC reported, “said he is using his foundation and the billions at his disposal to ‘protect the democratic achievements of the past.’ Soros was an active supporter of Hillary Clinton during her unsuccessful campaign against Trump in 2016. He reportedly had lost about $1 billion when the market surged higher after Trump’s victory.”
He also took aim at Facebook and Google, calling them a “menace” that must be stopped with “more stringent regulations,” the Daily Caller reported.

“They claim they are merely distributing information. But the fact that they are near- monopoly distributors makes them public utilities and should subject them to more stringent regulations, aimed at preserving competition, innovation, and fair and open universal access,” Soros said.
Soros additionally noted that that such powerful tech giants could eventually enter alliances with “authoritarian states,” and that the results would be disastrous.
“There could be an alliance between authoritarian states and these large, data-rich IT monopolies that would bring together nascent systems of corporate surveillance with an already developed system of state-sponsored surveillance,” the billionaire said. “This may well result in a web of totalitarian control the likes of which not even Aldous Huxley or George Orwell could have imagined.”
One can easily argue that we are already seeing totalitarian control and censorship on these platforms.
Still, one has to wonder: What does Soros have up his sleeve?
