Billionaire philanthropist and liberal activist George Soros says Elizabeth Warren is the top Democrat in the field vying to take on President Donald Trump in 2020.

“She has emerged as the clear-cut person to beat,” he told The New York Times in an interview published Friday. “I don’t take a public stance, but I do believe that she is the most qualified to be president.”

Soros, a former currency trader and the target of numerous right-wing conspiracy theories, does not consider his position to be an endorsement. He said he will not endorse any candidate.

“I don’t express my views generally because I have to live with whoever the electorate chooses,” said the 89-year-old Hungarian-American, who in 1979 established the Open Society Foundations to help countries transition to democracy.

Financiers are divided on Warren, who has proposed a bevy of new taxes and criticized corporate greed

But Soros has previously expressed views in line with the progressive Massachusetts senator, and has long called for the government to increase his taxes.

In June, Soros was among the wealthy individuals who signed a letter in support of Warren’s wealth-tax proposal. That letter, billed as “nonpartisan,” also noted that it should not be construed as an endorsement.

Warren has shot up in the polls recently and is now in second place in national surveys, behind former Vice President Joe Biden.

In the interview with the Times, Soros also criticized Trump, and in particular his foreign policy.

“Trump is still doing a tremendous amount of damage,” he said. He added that Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops from Syria earlier this month “has been devastating for America’s influence in the world.”

Warren’s campaign declined to comment. A spokesperson for Soros confirmed his remarks to the Times and reiterated that it was not an endorsement.

  1. She has been selected and now “appointed as the next president of his US”.
    Isn’t that great, America, your mutual friend George Soros is selecting/appointing your president?

    This round of selections is on the house. George is paying.
    IMO, little Elisabeth is a flip-flopper and a controlled puppie of George. $,$$$,$$$ is what counts. No change for the “start” is already wrong.

    Amen.

  3. Hahaha.. Oh my, the slimy Jew is still walking free.. Just shows what a colossal joke the entire US Nation is.. Had the nation and its people been competent, the criminal shit sack Schwartz would have been gone long time ago..

  4. Warren is a total retard, just like all the others..

  5. There’s always a Jew telling you what is good for you

  6. Soros’s son is married for Chelsea Clinton so just to give you idea……

  7. That sinister kike Soros stated, “I don’t take a public stance…”, but then took a very public stance, like the duplicitous lying sack demonic sludge that he is. Soros is a putrid shit-stain on the fabric of humanity and is overdue to be impoverished, dragged through the streets by his ankles to the front of the US Capitol, stripped naked, flogged mercilessly, rolled in pig shit, and nailed to a tree.
