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.
