George Soros showed up in Davos to give a speech at the World Economic Forum and of course he was trashing Trump and calling him names. Soros sounds like he can barely get the words out, but that didn't matter for the 89-year-old who seems to dip his money into things people aren't always happy with.
Soros groveled on for a while, and then halfway through his speech he was going after Trump.
He stumbles a bit here and there, because he's 89 and that just what 89-year-olds do, but this was simply hard to get through.
Funny enough, he wants people to share his vision. OK, but maybe his vision shouldn't involve attacking world leaders who are setting record numbers in their country.
Partial transcript from Soro's website:
President Trump is a con man and the ultimate narcissist who wants the world to revolve around him. When his fantasy of becoming president came true, his narcissism developed a pathological dimension. Indeed, he has transgressed the limits imposed on the presidency by the Constitution and has been impeached for it. At the same time, he has managed to gather a large number of followers who have bought into his alternative reality. This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease. He came to believe that he could impose his alternative reality not only on his followers but on reality itself.
Trump’s counterpart, Xi Jinping, suffered a traumatic experience in his early youth. His father had been one of the founders of the Chinese Communist Party. He was expelled, and his son, Xi Jinping, grew up in rural exile. Since that time, the goal of Xi’s leadership became to reassert the Communist Party’s dominance over Chinese life. He called it the “Chinese dream” of a “rejuvenated” China capable of projecting its power and influence throughout the world. Xi Jinping has abolished a carefully developed system of collective leadership and became a dictator as soon as he gained sufficient strength to do so.
When it comes to their motivations, they are totally different, Trump is willing to sacrifice the national interests for his personal interests and he will do practically anything to win re-election. By contrast, Xi Jinping is eager to exploit Trump’s weaknesses and use artificial intelligence to achieve total control over his people.
