"Davos is a good place to announce that their days are numbered", he said.

Leftist fearmongering about President Donald Trump literally destroying the world flared up again on Thursday, as liberal billionaire donor George Soros joined the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in predicting a Trump nuclear armageddon.

He argues they "deliberately engineer addiction to the services they provide", which can be particularly harmful to adolescents, and draws a parallel with the behaviour of gambling companies. "Not only the survival of open society, but the survival of our entire civilization is at stake", Soros said. South Korea's President Moon Jae-in thanked Trump for contributing to this development.

Soros's first major political involvement was in funding groups blocking the re-election bid of George W Bush in 2004.

"Indeed, the United States is set on a course towards nuclear war by refusing to accept that [North] Korea has become a nuclear power", Soros declared, CNBC reported.

Soros, 87, called the Trump administration a "danger" for risking nuclear war with North Korea. "That's why I expect a Democratic landslide in 2018", he added.

Soros said that these tech giants claim that they are distributing information but they are distributing monopoly instead.

The hedge fund leader slammed the tech giants "monopolistic behavior", declaring their motions and control of the internet as "obstacles to innovation", while also mentioning that they have caused a litany of problems which we have only recently begun to unravel.

Soros suggested that this sort of manipulation "already played an important role in the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections".

The financier's remarks couldn't help but spark a veritable flood of reactions over social media, with some users approving of what he said... The business magnate believes USA internet-service companies are already tempted to give into the demand of authoritarian states in order to gain access to their markets.

The temptation to among these companies to cooperate with authoritarian regimes like China in order to get access to those markets "may well result in a web of totalitarian control the likes of which not even Aldous Huxley or George Orwell could have imagined".

A Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism report revealed earlier this month that 44 per cent of publishers are more anxious about tech companies compared to the year before.

"To call the world's nuclear state dire is to understate the danger and its immediacy", Bronson said.
