Hedge Fund Legend George Soros Calls Trump A Dictator At The Davos Summit

People have called Donald Trump a lot of things in the privacy of their homes, but there aren’t many people that are willing to take the next step, and publicly gave Trump a damaging label. George Soros, the billionaire investor, and humanitarian, took that next step at the Davos Summit, and he’s not backing down.

George Soros doesn’t back down. That’s why he’s one of the wealthiest people on the planet. He is also one of the people that knows what he’s talking about when it comes to keeping Democracy alive and thriving around the world. George is a refugee that escaped the Nazi occupation of Hungry more than 70 years ago. He managed to land in London and attend the London School of Economics on opensocietyfoundations.org. He earned two degrees and went on to become a Wall Street investor in the 1950s. He is known as the “man that broke the Bank of England.” Soros bet the pound sterling was going to depreciate on Black Wednesday more than 40 years ago, and George made $1 billion that day. Soros hasn’t stopped making money since then. His family hedge fund has more than $25 billion in assets under management.

But in spite of his success, Soros chooses to put himself in front of the world and promote freedom and human rights around the world. George Soros’ Open Society Foundation has donated billions of dollars over the last twenty years to organizations that help people that live under a dictatorship or communism. It was no surprise when Soros decided to speak out about Donald Trump at the 2017 Davos Summit. Soros has been very vocal about Trump’s intentions for the last two years. Politico.com has published several articles about Soros dislike for Trump’s agenda. George spent more than $20 million trying to get Democrats elected in 2016.

Trump and Soros know each other. Mr. Trump asked Soros to invest in his Chicago Hotel when it was being built, and Soros participated. But doing business with Trump, and Trump making political and economic decisions on business2community.com are two different things. Trump is not qualified to be president, according to Soros, and he wants the world to know it.

At the Davos Summit, Soros told reporters that Trump is a con man and a dictator on Forbes. Trump wants to rule in a Mafioso style, but that won’t work in the United States, according to Soros. The U.S. Constitution will stop Trump from turning the world’s strongest Democracy into a chaotic state run by nationalistic supremacists.

Mr. Soros thinks Trump’s cabinet picks are controversial and divisive and the concept of having three chiefs of staff is a joke. Trump makes decisions on the spur of the moment, and that doesn’t work in this global economy. Starting a trade war with China will hurt the economy, not help it, and imposing a tariff on imported goods will stop the growth of the country’s consumer-driven economy. There’s no doubt, George Soros will continue to speak out against Donald Trump. George has enough money and credibility to make a difference.

The Koch Brothers Open a New Personal Investment Venture

Charles and David Koch have opened new company to serve as an investment vehicle for their private wealth. The billionaires have called it 1888 Management LLC, a homage to the year their grandfather got started as an American businessman. The company has recently begun seeking and acquiring investment opportunities for the brothers.

1888 Management LLC originally operated out of Koch Industries, Charles and David’s multi-billion dollar juggernaut company. It has since been incorporated in Delaware and received business licenses in several states. The Koch Brothers enlisted the expertise of Trent May to run their 1888 operation. In May’s previous work as the executive director of the Wyoming Retirement System, he achieved notoriety for turning the fund around and posting a 23 percent return one year after the 2008 crash.

The Koch’s new investment company is staffed with seven board members. A mixture of Koch family members and executives from Koch industries. Charles and David Koch are most famous for their political investments, namely for conservative and libertarian causes. It is unclear whether 1888 will pursue any political investments. So far 1888 Management has invested in a company called X5 OpCo LLC, which specializes in voice and data delivery solutions for the private and public sector.

Charles Koch currently serves as chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, Inc. He has held this position for approximately 50 years. Koch Industries’ subsidiaries are involved in a wide array of industries including energy, trade, manufacturing, and investment. Charles Koch’s deep interest in scientific endeavors has shaped Koch Industry’s success and led to the Koch’s renowned business philosophy focused on market-based management.

Charles wrote the book The Science of Success, which details the philosophy and outlook that has made him a business icon. For 50 years he has funded scientific research that seeks to effectively use market-based solutions to alleviate much of the world’s problems. Charles interest in societal advancement and improvement has led him to fund a number of organizations, such as the CATO Institute and the Institute for Humane Studies, that share his vision for a better future.

The Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders has been spread the reforms message as his main agenda on his presidential campaigns. He says that the country is faced with a chronic imbalance that discriminates the poor against the rich. Bernie Sanders has promised the public that if chosen as the president he will see to it that there are reforms in the country operational model to give everyone an equal right. Recently, the famous industrialist and entrepreneur Charles Koch showed his support for Bernie Sanders policies publicly. Charles Koch said that he too feels that the country needs reforms in its policies and institutions.

According to Charles Koch, the American way gives more privilege to the rich and wealthy at the expense of the poor. Charles Koch goes on to say that state institutions like the judicial system are more inclined to serving the rich better that they serve the poor. He says that such gaps compromise on the integrity of the integrity of not only the judiciary but also of the country as a whole. Charles Koch says that what the nation needs is a visionary leader who will bring positive reforms to the country. A leader who will be able to remove the control of the nations economy from the 1% rich back to the federal government. According to statistics, the American economy depends on 1% of the population who are extremely rich and thus percentage controls the livelihoods of nearly 80% if the population. Charles Koch has already started reforms in some sectors such as the correctional facilities. He has already signed various deals that are meant to initiate reforms in the correctional facilities industry.

Charles Koch is a popular industrialist and the owner of Koch Industries. The Koch Industries are the second-largest privately owned firm by revenues. Charles Koch owns the Koch industries together with his brother, and they control over 42% of the total stake in the company. The Koch brothers and especially Charles, have been known to be political funders for a long time. In the previous election, they were able to raise over $400 million which they channeled into the election cycle. This election period, it has been said that they are planning to release over 900 million to fund campaigns at different levels. Now that Charles Koch has shown support for Bernie Sanders policies, it is expected that he will be one of the beneficiaries of the loot. Bernie Sanders has already benefited from the public endorsement from Koch, which will play well for his supporters.

Koch Brothers against Donald Trump

Charles Koch is an American businessman with great influence in the American politics. He and his brother David Koch are the co-owners of Koch industries. Charles serves as CEO of Koch Industries, a business they inherited from their father. His political views are evident. He advocates for smaller governments and a liberal economy and has publicly voiced his views. One such occasion was when he addressed a crowd gathered in August for the Freedom Partners Policy Leaders Conference in California.

After failing in their bid to support Mitt Romney in 2012, the Koch brothers analyzed what had gone wrong in 2012 to avoid similar mistakes in the next elections. Doubling their 2012 efforts was seen as the best way forward and the Koch brothers and their allies decided they will work towards raising $900 to support a Republican candidate in the general election.
However, according to an interview given by Charles Koch at the staff commissary in Kansas in January 2016, things are not working out as they expected. Charles Koch said that people would think that they would have more influence in the general election and that was not the case as things were not working out as they had planned.
Donald Trump was turning out to be a serious presidential candidate contender than they had thought. Not only had the Koch brothers misjudged Donald Trump, but also the Republicans. Charles Koch and his brother must find a way to stop Donald Trump because their political views clash on some issues such as taxes and trade. Another reason for Koch brothers wanting to stop Donald Trump is because he turned on them when they refused to support his presidential campaign.
The role of the Koch brothers in the upcoming general election seems to be changing. The initial objective was to ensure a Republican candidate gets to the White House. Charles Koch and his brother are considering ways in which they will stop Donald Trump from running for president. According to Koch officials, the plan is to start campaigns against Donald Trump at the primaries. The Koch network is planning to divert the resources for supporting a Republican candidate towards the campaign targeting Donald Trump.
However, based on recent assessment, the Koch brothers have carefully assessed the political landscape and the Koch network and may decide to fight Donald Trump because he is not liked within the Koch network.
