Australian billionaire Rupert Murdoch has long been a supporter of American Republican politics. Murdoch not only Fox News, but also the New York Post and the Wall St. Journal. All 3 news outlets lean to the right and have ardently backed Donald Trump’s presidency.
But Murdoch did not become a powerful business magnate by not seeing which way the wind was blowing. And he doesn’t have high hopes in Donald Trump’s 2020 chances. According to the Daily Beast, Murdoch is telling people that he expects Joe Biden to win in a landslide.
Lachlan Cartwright reports, “The Australian-born billionaire is disgusted by Trump’s handling of COVID-19, remarking that the president is his own worst enemy, that he is not listening to advice about how best to handle the pandemic, and that he’s creating a never-ending crisis for his administration.”
The Daily Beast also reports that Murdoch has been so unhappy with Trump that he considered backing Mike Bloomberg’s 2020 unsuccessful 2020 presidential bid. The billionaire also reportedly told one associate, “after all that has gone on, people are ready for Sleepy Joe.”
