Liberal Billionaire George Soros compared Trump’s victory to the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany.
Today he took aim at President Trump and tech giants during an appearance at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world,” Soros said, according to Bloomberg News. “But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020, or even sooner.”
“I give President Trump credit for motivating his core supporters brilliantly,” he added. “But for every core supporter, he has created a greater number of core opponents who are equally strongly motivated. That’s why I expect a Democratic landslide in 2018.”
He also he took aim at Google and Facebook during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, calling the tech giants “near-monopoly distributors.”
Soros’ speech included a harsh critique of both companies, with the billionaire referring to the companies as a “menace” that must be stopped with “more stringent regulations,” such as treating the companies like public utilities, according to BuzzFeed.
“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 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.”
What’s he doing in Davos in the first place? Just cause he is a billionaire doesn’t give him the right to address this body!
He wants to shut down our free speech. He’s nervous. He sees the people are no longer easily manipulated. He’s looking at the losing end of the spectrum.
