The United States in the near future will be engaged шт internal strife, which would be the result of Donald Trump's rise to power. This is stated in the article of American financier and philanthropist George Soros for the "European truth."
According to Soros, Trump's rise to power will allow some dictators to reach a compromise with the Americans. Soros also said that democracy is going through a crisis.
"Democracy is in crisis. Even the United States, the world's leading democracy, elected their president a potential dictator. Although Trump has softened its rhetoric after the election, he did not change his behavior or his advisers. His cabinet is consisted of incompetent extremists and retired generals", Soros wrote.
He is convinced that, despite that, democracy in the United States will withstand as the American system of government is strong enough to resist the excesses of the executive power, and it will prevent the conversion of potential dictator into a real dictator.
"But the US in the near future will be occupied by internal strife. While a minority will suffer. US will not be able to defend and promote democracy in the rest of the world. On the contrary, Trump will be more acceptable to the dictators. This will allow some of them to reach a compromise with the United States, and the other - to continue their business without interference. Trump wants to negotiate, and not uphold the principles ", - said Soros.
