Left-wing billionaire, investor and philanthropist George Soros’ reported decision to hand control of his $25 million empire to his son, Alex Soros, has prompted a not-so-subtle jab from one European leader.
“Soros 2.0,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán wrote on Twitter Monday, including a GIF depicting a scene from the movie “The Godfather” in which family patriarch and mafia head Vito Corleone is seen kissing the cheek of son, Michael Corleone.
In the film, Michael takes over the crime family following Vito’s death, and continues his father’s work growing the organization and battling the family’s enemies.

“As much as I would love to get money out of politics, as long as the other side is doing it, we will have to do it, too,” Alex said.
He went on to express concern over the prospect of former President Donald Trump returning to the White House in the 2024 presidential election.
