George Soros is not a fan of President Donald Trump or the GOP. So we should give him some credit form coming out in support, after today’s cancel culture the left will surely attack him for saying anything nice about President Trump and his get-tough policy in China.
It’s fair to say that no one saw that coming. Soros even went further and called it truly bipartisan, which it is, and said that his move to declare China a strategic rival was the right move.
Soros called President Trump’s China policy his greatest foreign accomplishment and went on to say that he feared China and President Trump may use Huawei as a bargaining chip.
Soros went even farther than anyone in Trump’s administration and claimed that Huawei must be brought to heel.
President Trump is currently seeking charges against the CFO of that company so it looks like he is in good spot with China.
CNBC reported that George Soros called President Trump’s China policy, “coherent and genuinely bipartisan” as well as “the greatest — and perhaps only — foreign policy accomplishment of the Trump administration.”
Soros also that said the Trump administration was right to put Huawei on the Commerce Department’s “entity list” as a national security threat, which prevents U.S. companies from engaging in business with the firm.
In the op-ed, Soros called China “a dangerous rival in artificial intelligence and machine learning” but said its ability to compete in the 5G market is seriously hampered by Huawei’s dependence on U.S. companies.
“As long as Huawei remains on the entity list, it will lack crucial technology and be seriously weakened,” George Soros wrote.
