Alex Soros, the son and heir of billionaire George’s empire, declared his primary mission in 2024 is defeating MAGA and preventing Donald Trump from winning the White House.
“I believe a MAGA-style Republican victory in next year’s US presidential election could, in the end, be worse for the EU than for the US Such an outcome will imperil European unity and undermine the progress achieved on many fronts in response to the war in Ukraine,” Alex Soros wrote in an op-ed in Politico on the 2024 election.
Trump has frequently voiced his opposition to the Biden administration’s funding of the war in Ukraine.
The US has sent billions in cash, aid, and weapons to Ukraine since the war began in 2022.
Trump said that he’d bring a direct end to the war if he won the 2024 election.
“I know Zelensky very well, and I know Putin very well, even better. And I had a good relationship, very good, with both of them,” Trump said in July.
“I would tell Zelensky,” Trump said.
“‘No more, you got to make a deal.’ I would tell Putin, ‘If you don’t make a deal, we’re gonna give them a lot. We’re gonna give more than they ever got if we have to,'” he said. “I will have the deal done in one day, one day.”
However, Soros has other ideas.
“We are adapting OSF to be able to respond to whatever scenarios might emerge on both sides of the Atlantic,” Soros said.
He also responded to reports that Soros and OSF are “leaving Europe,” saying that this is misleading.
Soros claims that he and the Foundation “Are shifting our priorities in Europe accordingly.”
“Yes, this means we will be exiting some areas of work as we focus on today’s challenges, as well as those we will face tomorrow. And yes, we will also be reducing our headcount significantly, seeking to ensure more money goes out to where it’s most needed,” Soros said.
“But this isn’t any kind of retreat,” he continued.
Soros then touted the work his Foundation is doing in Ukraine.
“To begin with, there should be absolutely no doubt that we will continue to support our foundation in Ukraine,” he said.
“We are proud that the network of civil society groups it has assisted, with over $250 million since 2014, has played such an important role in Kyiv’s resilience in the face of Russia’s horrific war of aggression.”
Soros also called EU membership for the Balkans to “bolster European security and avoid creating a geopolitical vacuum.”
The Soros hier also took a swipe at Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s closure of the Central European University, which was shuttered in Budapest.
The Soros-funded school closed its doors in Budapest in 2018 under Orban’s direction.
“Soros had conceived the school during the dying days of communism to train a generation of technocrats,” The Atlantic reported.
“Who would write new constitutions, privatize state enterprises, and lead the post-Soviet world into a cosmopolitan future? The university, he declared, would ‘become a prototype of an open society.'”
In July, the Daily Fetched reported that Alex Soros had 20 meetings at President Joe Biden’s White House, according to the latest White House visitor logs.
Soros had visited the Biden White House 15 times, met with officials 20 times, and attended a state dinner for French President Emmanuel Macron with Biden in attendance.
