This Election Not For Sale

George Soros is upset because he couldn't steal the election:
In the liberal billionaire’s view, Trump, though unable to ultimately overthrow democracy in the United States, will inspire democratic instability around the rest of the world:

I am confident that democracy will prove resilient in the US. Its Constitution and institutions, including the fourth estate, are strong enough to resist the excesses of the executive branch, thus preventing a would-be dictator from becoming an actual one.

But the US will be preoccupied with internal struggles in the near future, and targeted minorities will suffer. The US will be unable to protect and promote democracy in the rest of the world. On the contrary, Trump will have greater affinity with dictators.

Unlike previous American presidents, who have rejected dictatorial regimes, Soros predicted the president-elect “will have greater affinity with dictators,” allowing “them to reach an accommodation with the U.S., and others to carry on without interference.”

“Trump will prefer making deals to defending principles. Unfortunately, that will be popular with his core constituency,” he charged.

In mid-November, Soros held a meeting with fellow progressive donors and think tank leaders to formulate a plan to “take back power” from the imminent Trump administration.
In a Republic, you do that by voting against him, not trying to buy him...
