The Shocking Success Of Donald Trump
Donald Trump was not expected to pull off the shocking victory that he did in November, but he managed to do so despite so many polls putting the odds against him. For most on the Left this surprise, and the things it will bring with it, are not welcome. Hedge fund manager George Soros has said many times before that he does not approve of the way that Donald Trump plans to govern and wants to do just about everything he can to oppose him. The Right has made a number of victories through the election of last year and now holds the majority of seats in Congress and controls most state governments. Something must be done soon about this and Soros plans to be the one.
The Response To This Shock
The most interesting thing about the way that George Soros has responded to this recent victory is his insistence on doing everything it takes in order to keep Donald Trump from reaching his agenda. There aren’t many things that Democrats can do directly to fight against Donald Trump or his plans for the immediate future. The best things to do now are prepare for future elections and invest in finding any way to prevent Trump from enacting his plans once he reaches office.
Helping Progressives Move Forward
Progressive movements are obviously in danger and nobody wants to help them out more than George Soros. Soros has long stated that he believes the Left needs to do everything it can to make sure that working class Americans feel that they are able to enjoy the fruits of globalization. The contempt that many working class Americans feel for globalization, a major factor in the victory of Donald Trump, has led to efforts to fight against Globalization. The best thing the Left can do is share wealth and establish a new way of thinking about free trade. Read more at The New York Times about George.
Possible Dangers Ahead In Europe
The success of Donald Trump might spell trouble in Europe as well. European conservatives are embracing similar stances on immigration and on free trade. If they manage to obtain power as well the consequences could spell trouble for the world as authoritarianism makes a comeback and the Western world experiences decline.
