George Soros: Elizabeth Warren "is the most qualified to be president"
Democratic megadonor George Soros told the New York Times that he believes Elizabeth Warren is the "most qualified" candidate for the presidency in 2020 — though he stopped short of an outright endorsement.
- His bankrolling of progressive causes has made him a favorite target for conservative pundits.
"There are more Main Streets in America than there are Wall Streets. So I don’t think that Wall Street, other than being a source of money, will have its way in choosing the president."
Worth noting: Despite the fact that many in finance are worried about Warren's progressive stance, Soros — a billionaire financier — said that he supports increasing taxes on the wealthy and reiterated his support for a wealth tax, which is one of Warren's key policy promises.
