George Soros on America’s Declining Influence Under President Trump
Political supporter and analysis George Soros loves America and he is fond of the American people. He wants to see this country flourish and grow regardless of who is leading it. However, since President Donald J. Trump has taken office; Soros is leery of America’s ability to remain the influencer of democracy that it once was in the past.
President Donald Trump is a polarizing American leader on Forbes. Many people within the U.S. do not like his character or his personality. They see Trump as an incompetent and misunderstood individual who does not know how to communicate with people or to connect with individuals on a personal level on opensocietyfoundations.org. They also see the president as a person who lacks experience and knowledge about running a country like the U.S.
Even though this is the case, there are millions of people who agree with the president’s stance on many different issues on Biography. They also are drawn to his anti-social personality.
If they were not, President Donald Trump would not have been elected to office in November of 2016. He defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a surprise victory. Apparently, the voters cared more for Trump than they did for Clinton.
Now that Trump is in office, George Soros views his presidency as a farce. He says that so many people are unsure of Trump simply because the man does not know what he is doing. He also states that Trump is not good for keeping America’s image strong in the world.
America is the leading torch bearer for democracy on the planet. This is the number one country on Earth that is able to showcase democracy to its fullest potential to the world. Soros sees America’s role as the leader of the freed world diminishing within the next 4 years.
One reason why Soros is taking this stance has to do with America’s internal struggles. This nation is extremely divided on many issues. Domestically, America is all over the place. There is no central political or social cause or activity that is keeping all Americans on the same page. So, the U.S. is now a country divided.
This division is going to keep America tied up for a long time dealing with domestic problems. Since this will happen, America will no longer have time to focus on the rest of the world. Sure, America will still be out on the scene but their presence will be noticeably a lot quieter and more disengaged.
Soros also sees the president’s policies such as the immigration ban as a problem for America’s image. In January of 2017 President Trump enacted the immigration ban to keep Muslim people from high risk terrorist countries from coming into the U.S. This ban is temporary but many people see it as the beginning of bad things to come.
Soros believes that since Trump is successful with keeping one group of people out of the land of opportunity; how many more can he keep out. America was built on immigrates but Trump’s time in office can change this and how people view this great nation.
There are many more reasons why Soros believes that Trump is ruining the country. Ultimately, he just wants the president to make wise decisions that will not harm this nation’s image to the rest of the world.
