In his article, “Trump is a con man, and he will fail,” he states that Trump is on the opposite side of the open society which means that trump’s leadership is more of dictatorial than democratic on Snopes. Trump is justifying his actions by getting rid of the immigrants who have acquired the citizenship of the country legally. Having acquired the citizenship of a country means you are an accepted citizen of the country not considering where you have come from, and Trump is going beyond that by sending them back to their countries.
Trump also expresses his dictatorial character by getting in the way of the Muslims in the United States. The United States being a superstate should not deny some of its members the right to worship. Every human being should have a right to worship. People have different beliefs, and the fact that he hates Muslims doesn’t mean he should make America a non-Muslim country. George Soros is foreseeing that Trump’s possibilities of being a dictator are very high. The only thing coming in his way are the US law institutions because they are strong enough and capable of preventing such scenarios.
George Soros considered Trump’s ideas inherent and self-contradictory. This shows that Trump has poor advisors who are misleading him. His ideas should at least leave room for dynamics, but Trump does not consider this as an option.
George also said that it’s very easy to predict trump’s actions since he wasn’t prepared for the presidential seat. He didn’t expect to get that position, so he doesn’t have much to offer considering he has not been so involved in politics. George Soros is a businessman who has just jumped to politics.
In his article titled, “this is not the business time as usual, wishing you all the best in the world,” George states that apart from democracy issue on nytimes.com are going to be internal wrangles and that the minority are going to suffer most. He is also worried about EU being in the hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin who is against the open society on opensocietyfoundations.org. George is also foreseeing Trump allowing other dictators in the country enabling them to carry on their activities in the US without interference.

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring, has announced that it will begin to release reports provided by the Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC), highlighting “wrongdoings and integrity breaches” by Global Tel Link (GTL), an inmate telecommunications provider which formerly served Louisiana prisons, providing outbound telecom services for inmates. The reports are from 1998, and will be released over the next six months.
According to PR Newswire, the Louisiana PSC found that GTL overcharged the taxpayers of the State of Louisiana for inmate phone calls by changing the internal clocks on their prison phones to add time, and therefore charges to each call. Rates were changed after calls were made, and unauthorized add-on fees were included. In addition, the PSC found incidences of double-billing which appeared to be deliberate. In all, the cost of these fraudulent practices was $1,243,000 to the taxpayers of Louisiana.
Though the reports were written 18 years ago, Securus America believes that the abuses by GTL are still occurring and must be addressed and stopped. Securus’ CEO, Richard A. (“Rick”) Smith says that “Adding time to calls in telecommunications represents the ultimate in wrongdoing-playing tricks on your customers and scamming them is real B.S. and a cancer on our industry. Time does not take that sin away.”
