George Soros’s Take on Donald Trump

George Soros has been one of the leading investors and investment managers in the world for the past fifty years. Soros has successfully provided a strong return on investment to investors during several different investment and credit cycles. His success has allowed him to amass a net wroth of over $25 billion, which has made him one of the wealthiest people in the world. Soros is often consulted on many different topics, including the global economy, economic predictions, and other events that are impacting the world.

While he is largely interviewed for his take on economic and financial issues, Forbes billionaire George Soros is also frequently quested about his take on politics and other social issues. Soros was recently interviewed about the forthcoming US Presidential election, particularly the wild GOP election and debate process that has been going on for the past year. Soros had plenty to say, particularly about potential nominee Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has been adamant about controlling the borders of the United States and doing the best the country can to stop additional immigration, particularly of Muslims. While Trump has been boasting that this would be best for the security of the country, Soros believes that this could actually have a negative effect on the security of the United States. Soros stated that if Trump actively closes the borders and prevents Muslims from entering the country, it would actually lead to more animosity and violence in the United States. He also stated that he believes it would difficult to ever build and maintain the wall against Mexico that Trump has been recommending.

During the same interview, Soros also commented on how Germany has handled the Syrian refugee crisis. He has stated that chancellor Angela Merkel invested a significant amount of political capital by having an open borders policy, and it now appears that she lost that investment. With the recent terrorist attacks in Europe, many people inside Germany are now concerned that the policy is too liberal and is putting the country at risk. This policy is also causing a rift with other countries in the European Union.
