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:In a Republic, you do that by voting against him, not trying to buy him...
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.

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.
