Stanley Druckenmiller says loose monetary policy helped elect Donald Trump

The Federal Reserve's loose monetary policy helped Donald Trump win the presidential election, billionaire investor Stanley Druckenmiller told CNBC on Thursday.

"It was just a small part of it, but of course it did," Druckenmiller said on "Squawk Box." "Because it caused a massive reallocation of wealth from what I would call the middle class to people like me."

Druckenmiller also lamented protests over the election results.

"It's scary to see the divisiveness," he said. "But history has a very funny way of playing out. And I would not be surprised if we're looking at the absolute peak of divisiveness."
