George Soros' son said on Friday that there's really no getting rid of Donald Trump.
Alex Soros made the comments on a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
"He either winds up in prison or he winds up in power," Alex Soros said, CNBC reported.
Soros' son, Alex Soros, told a panel on Friday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that Trump — the frontrunner for the 2024 US Republican presidential nomination who has fueled conspiracy theories about the elder Soros — won't go away unless he winds up behind bars.
"Donald Trump owns the Republican Party. We're in something I like to call the Trump cycle, because I think even if — and I believe, if the institutions hold, when — he loses this election, he'll also be the Republican candidate in 2028 and maybe even 2032 as well," Alex Soros said, eliciting laughter from attendees, according to CNBC.
Alex Soros, the chairman of his father's philanthropic empire, Open Society Foundations, continued of Trump, "What's the way out for him? He either winds up in prison or he winds up in power. He's not going off on some beach somewhere and retiring."
Trump has been indicted in four separate criminal cases and faces a total of 91 felony counts, but that hasn't hampered the former president when it comes to the national polls.
"In Davos, Donald Trump is already the president," Alex Soros said on the panel. "That's a good thing, because the Davos consensus is always wrong," according to CNBC.
The New York Times' DealBook reported on Friday that many business and political leaders at the World Economic Forum privately said that they believed Trump would beat out President Joe Biden and win reelection.
