George Soros vs. Donald Trump

Most average Americans have only minimal concepts of what it is like to be a billionaire. George Soros has an inside view that expounds on issues individual Americans may miss. It is an interesting learning curve to contrast the life of George Soros with Donald J. Trump.

A Portrait of Billionaire Contrast

George Soros supports Democrats. The reason is obvious, his past life of trying to escape Nazi dictatorship and Russian Communism gives him impetus to challenge those who confuse business with known corporate dictators espousing “business as usual.”

It is difficult to slot Donald J. Trump into any political ideology or partisan persuasion, given his mercurial speech and behavior.

George Soros, over the course of his entire life, maintains strong commitments to liberalism which Donald J. Trump pays little attention to. This is the basis of the contrast between these two men. Where Soros spends his money philanthropically on education and other social issues, The Trump Organization has yet to prove more than minimal interest in philanthropy.

Conservatively Liberal

George Soros believes in free thought, even in his position as CEO. He categorically proves he can delegate to others without reservation of potential failure on their part. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has a peculiar “delegate with one hand, take control back with the other hand” strategy.

Ironically, both men have one thing in common. Both, in their individual demeanors, are liberals. George Soros prefers liberal freedom of thought and press. Donald Trump prefers liberal control over the press, as has been frequently seen during his presidential campaign.

Yet, George Soros is conservatively positioned when it comes to taking risks in his business. Donald Trump conservatively positions himself autocratically by being the last word on decisions that tend toward greater potential risk. Soros is the quiet behind the scenes man. Trump is the showman ever in need of a spotlight.

When Ideology Doesn’t Matter

Depending on which way political winds blow, ideology no longer really matters. Splits among conservative ideologues are as deep and wide as splits between liberals. When it comes down to ideology, it depends entirely on individual mindset.

George Soros on Donald Trump

In an interview with Bloomberg at the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland shortly before Donald Trump was sworn into the office of the presidency, George Soros stated:

“I personally am convinced that he is going to fail. Failure will come not because of people like me who would like him to fail, but because his ideas that guide him are inherently self-contradictory and the contradictions are already embodied by his advisors.”
