Billionaire oligarch George Soros all but endorsed Elizabeth Warren for President when speaking to the New York Times on Friday, explaining that he viewed the Massachusetts senator as the “most qualified” candidate for President.
Soros wasn’t explicit in giving Warren his full endorsement- likely hoping to preserve personal political access to other Democratic candidates should they win the nomination- but made it clear he was at least tacitly in her camp.
The Hungarian-born financier is one of the wealthiest people in the United States. He’s poured billions of dollars into promoting a globalist agenda, ranging from propping up progressive front groups to outright funding illegal immigration.
Soros has a net worth of almost ten billion dollars, and has stashed countless billions more in his financial investment companies and liberal pressure group, the Open Society Foundations. He’d likely be liable to pay more in taxes under Elizabeth Warren’s proposed wealth tax policy plan.
However, Soros’ endorsement may speak to the possibility that Warren wouldn’t actually enact a wealth act. If the megabillionaire were to use his vast personal fortune to support her candidacy, he’d likely possess great personal leverage over President Warren.
Soros had previously bemoaned what he perceived as his lack of influence within the Obama administration, stating that he would’ve preferred a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Soros also believes that Warren is the “clear cut person to beat” within the current structure of the Democratic Primary. He slammed President Donald Trump’s withdrawal of American forces from northern Syria, claiming that bringing home American troops from an endless war was damaging to the United States’ influence throughout the world.
As Warren is endorsed by the infamous oligarch, it’s worth questioning if she’s seeking the support of everyday, working-class American people or the widely detested political elite.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
