The Economist, a publication that has come to be regarded as a megaphone for elitist sentiment, has published a leading editorial piece that argues Donald Trump “must be stopped” from winning the presidency.
Entitled Time to Fire Trump, the editorial worries that Hillary Clinton may lose her slight lead over Trump in national polling if the U.S. economy falls back into recession, handing Trump the Oval Office.
“He is so unpredictable that the thought of him anywhere near high office is terrifying. He must be stopped,” states the editorial.
The article goes on to claim that Marco Rubio is still the establishment’s best hope of eclipsing Trump and that Ted Cruz should “get out of his way”.
Trump has prospered “by inciting hatred and violence,” according to the piece, which argues that, “The things Mr Trump has said in this campaign make him unworthy of leading one of the world’s great political parties.”
The Economist, which is 50% owned by the Rothschild banking family of England and is regularly represented at the influential and elitist Bilderberg confab, previously acknowledged that a global superclass does conspire to shape the future of the world.
The editorial’s panicked tone again illustrates how not just the Republican establishment, but the neo-liberal global elite is absolutely petrified at the prospect of a Trump presidency.
As we previously highlighted, during last month’s Davos summit, financial elitists expressed their alarm at the prospect of Trump being the Republican nominee, with highly influential CEO Martin Sorrell insisting that “Hillary will win,” a statement that some took as a threat rather than a prediction.
Regular Bilderberg attendee and associate editor of the Financial Times Martin Wolf also asserted last month that the “global super elite” must stop Donald Trump from winning the presidency.
“Nativist populists must not win. We know that story: it ends very badly,” wrote Wolf. “In the case of the US, the outcome would have grave global significance. America was the founder and remains guarantor of our global liberal order. The world desperately needs well-informed US leadership. Mr Trump cannot provide this.”
