George Soros: Trump Is ‘willing to destroy the world’

Billionaire investor George Soros has called President Trump a “narcissist [who is] perfectly willing to destroy the world in order to maintain his narcissism.”

“I have built a kind of a mental picture of [Trump] as the ultimate narcissist. I don’t think that he was at all prepared to win the election. Neither he nor [Russian President Vladimir] Putin expected him to win,” he added in his interview with the Washington Post
