Far-left billionaire and political donor George Soros lavished praise on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday, calling her the “most qualified to be president.” He also predicted a Warren presidency.
The liberal kingmaker said he was not endorsing any candidate in the 2020 presidential race, so he could support whichever candidate the Democratic Party nominates against President Donald Trump.
In an interview with The New York Times, Soros called Trump “an aberration,” accusing the president of “clearly putting his personal interests ahead of the national interests. I think it will contribute to his demise next year. So I am slightly predicting that things will turn around.”
He predicted that Warren — who has emerged as a co-frontrunner with former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks — would become the Democratic nominee.
“She has emerged as the clear-cut person to beat,” Soros told the Times. “I don’t take a public stance, but I do believe that she is the most qualified to be president.”
He insisted that he was not endorsing Warren: “I’m not endorsing anybody because I want to work with whoever,” he said. “I don’t express my views generally because I have to live with whoever the electorate chooses.”
Warren has adopted many of the big-government policies advocated by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who openly calls himself a “democratic socialist.” Last weekend, Democratic rising star and fellow “democratic socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) endorsed Sanders in the 2020 Democratic primary.
