It is widely recognized that different people in business and political circles have substantial influence over laws and events. This includes those people that invest in companies and are dissatisfied with the current operations and returns, as well as those who use their wealth to make political policy and change. George Soros is one of those people with investments made through the Open Society Foundation.
George Soros’ use of the Open Society Foundation in business and political matters creates a firestorm of worry to those that oppose his positions. George Soros maintains well known liberal views on a variety of issues, and more information click here.
During his younger days, he paid for his education at the London School of Economics by working as a rail porter and waiter. He later founded the well-known Soros Fund Management hedge fund. Because of his successful leadership, that fund swelled Soros’ net worth to over $25 billion. Once you have that much wealth, you begin to ask what you should do with all of it. Soros asked himself that same question and now channels that wealth through his Open Society Foundation to oppose those candidates running for, and involved with, the Republican Party.
His support of the democrats and liberals has been longstanding and steadfast. Indeed, in 2004 he made it one of his driving goals to defeat George W. Bush . Soros used his influence and wealth by donating over $27 million to the Democratic Party with the majority of the record donation to elect John Kerry. When John Kerry failed in his bid for the presidential office, Soros continued his efforts to vigorously oppose the Republican party and its platform.
Once George W. Bush left office after his second term, Soros decided to support Senator Barrack Obama, who represented Illinois. That was a change from his original intent to support Hillary Clinton for the presidential candidacy. Soros donated many millions of dollars to the Obama campaign but was eventually disappointed that Obama was not liberal enough. Soros ultimately extended his apology to Hillary Clinton for not supporting her bid for the presidency, and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.
Once Barrack Obama left the presidency after his second term, Soros strongly supported Hillary Clinton to assure the defeat of the Republican candidate Donald J. Trump. In harmony with his liberal position and beliefs, Soros vehemently opposed Donald J. Trump and saw him as the embodiment of everything he stood against. Soros strongly disapproves of Trump. Soros believes Trump not only to be incorrect in his conservative positions but also expressed his opinion that Trump was a mentally unstable fool. Soros donated $25 million to support the Clinton campaign as well as a number of other Democratic causes. History has made its decision and Donald J. Trump was ultimately elected to the presidency in November 2016.
Soros has reaffirmed his efforts to oppose Trump on all and every issue. Soros has donated to and even funded anti-Trump events. He has donated to some liberal leaning super Pacs including Planned Parenthood, Immigrant Voters Win, and others.
