Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, the power and the money behind the shift of the Democrat party of coalitions from merely liberal to a radically left-wing fringe group literally hanging on to the edges of the continent, sunk $25 million into Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential bid – and he is not happy with the results.

In fact, Soros, the 86-year-old says he not only “finds the current moment in history very painful,” but “fears for the future of the free world,” as President-elect Donald Trump moves closer to taking the oath of office on January 20, 2017.

“Democracy is now in crisis,” Soros writes in the news site, Project Syndicate.

Calling the next president, “a con artist” and a “would-be dictator,” Soros believes the populist movement that led not only to the Washington outsider to victory in November, but to the surprise vote of the United Kingdom to exit the European Union in June is a threat to the status quo in the United States and the world.

In addition to his claim that Trump’s willingness to work with Russian President Vladimir Putin threatens the European Union-style “open society” he supports, Soros calls the president-elect’s cabinet choices “incompetent extremists.”

Soros has had better luck forming and supporting left-wing organizations such as ACORN, Southern Poverty Law Center, La Raza, Planned Parenthood and the National Organization of Women, than he has in choosing presidential candidates, losing another $25.8 in 2004 when he declared “defeating President George W. Bush is the central focus of my life.” 

It is also widely presumed that Soros backed failed Green Party candidate, Jill Stein’s, unsuccessful recount effort in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Soros blames Trump’s victory, in part, on the use of social media to spread so-called “fake news” and will continue his control of the left by backing The International Fact Checking Network organization that liberal media will use to monitor social media users for spurious news.
