Not happy that nearly all of the mainstream media hates President Trump, the Left’s favorite billionaire thinks Facebook should not be left in Mark Zuckerberg’s control.
One of the most prolific meddlers in global politics, billionaire George Soros, does not like President Donald Trump and he thinks Facebook is going to help get President Trump re-elected.
As a result, he thinks Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg “should not be left in control of Facebook,” according to a lengthy op-ed Soros wrote in the New York Times.
“The main obstacle to a stable and
just world order is the United States.” — George Soros
At a dinner in Davos, Soros explains, he told a questioner that “Facebook helped Trump to get elected and I am afraid that it will do the same in 2020.”
“I believe that Mr. Trump and Facebook’s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, realize that their interests are aligned — the president’s in winning elections, Mr. Zuckerberg’s in making money,” writes Soros.
I repeat and reaffirm my accusation against Facebook under the leadership of Mr. Zuckerberg and Ms. Sandberg. They follow only one guiding principle: maximize profits irrespective of the consequences. One way or another, they should not be left in control of Facebook. [Emphasis added.]
Facebook and President Trump have aligned interests: Facebook will help President Trump get re-elected, and Mr. Trump will, in turn, defend Facebook against regulatory and media attacks. https://t.co/Fs2yXpTybO

Although Soros personally owns and investments many properties around the globe, he is not a fan of the American free market system and has spent hundreds of millions of dollars funding Neo-Marxist organizations throughout the United States.
UPDATE: Facebook is strongly denying Soros’ accusation that there is an ‘informal’ alliance between Trump and the social media behemoth, reports CNBC.
“While we respect Mr. Soros’ right to voice his opinion, he’s wrong,” a spokesman for Facebook said. “The notion that we are aligned with any one political figure or party runs counter to our values and the facts. We continue making unprecedented investments to keep our platform safe, fight foreign interference in elections around the world, and combat misinformation.”
