Battle Of The Billionaires
2016 was the year that billionaires George Soros and Donald Trump went toe to toe. Donald Trump’s bid for the White House wasn’t taken seriously at first, but he was clearly able to achieve victory.

The Stunning Victory Of Trump

However, on election night he managed to walk away with a shockingly large electoral victory. Since that election Soros has spent much of his time trying to help Democrats think of a plan for the road ahead. he intends to do just about everything he can to fight against the agenda that Trump has laid out and encourages Democrats to fight at all stages.
Where Trump Will Take Us
George Soros believes that the ultimate result of Donald Trump’s actions will lead to a weaker America and signal the end of America’s position as a world power. He points to some of Trump’s earliest decisions such as his move to remove the U.S from the Paris climate deal and the end of TPP. This will leave a vacuum that will eventually find a replacement. Other countries, particularly China, are eyeing world power and George Soros sees this as the perfect opportunity for those countries to take over. Things are changing this might not end well for America.

Donald Trump has said he is determined to deliver on his campaign promises and many of those promises are explicitly opposed to globalization. George Soros has distinguished himself as a long time supporter of globalization and does not want to see it end any time soon.
