In politics, some people are far more influential than others. They can throw their weight around as if they were king of the room. George Soros is such a powerful man when he wields the Open Society Foundation. He is so powerful that the right wishes he was not continually interfering in their work, and read full article.
Soros gained this power like any good American: hard work, a dream, and determination. He worked two jobs to put himself through the London School of Economics. Here he accumulated knowledge and wisdom that would not only change his life but even the direction of the country at times, and https://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros.
Upon graduation, he would start and run an extremely successful hedge fund which is known as Soros Fund Management. His net worth after successful running this hedge fund grew to over $25 billion. Soros had held liberal (or left-leaning) views since his college days, so it was easy for him to decide what to do with his money and power: thwart Republicans everywhere.
As part of his campaign to promote the values of the left and destroy the agenda of the right, in 2004, George Soros took on the leader of the free world. That year Soros did everything he could to see that George W. Bush was not reelected. To help fight Bush’s reelection, Soros donated a record amount of $27 million to the Democratic Party, with most of that earmarked for John Kerry’s presidential bid. Unfortunately, Soros’s money was not enough to defeat Bush, who served a second term.
As that term came to a close, Soros looked for a new Democrat to support. His initial instinct was to back Hilary Clinton, but after some thought, he switched to supporting Barrack Obama, a Senator from Illinois. Soros donated millions to the Obama campaign but eventually split with Obama, feeling that Obama’s campaign was not moving in the strongly liberal direction Soros favored. Later he apologized to Clinton for supporting Obama, and Twitter.com.
After Obama served two terms, Soros officially backed Clinton in the following election. When Soros began to fear that Trump might win the election, he stepped up his support. You see, George Soros hates Trump. Soros feels that Trump is mentally unfit for the presidency, based on both intelligence and emotional instability. Soros donated actively to Democrats during that election, including $1.5 million to Democratic Senate campaigns and $25 million to Clinton and other Democratic causes. With Clinton’s loss, however, Soros did not back down. He instead turned his efforts to making the presidency as difficult as possible for Trump. He quickly began organizing and funding anti-Trump events, including the women’s rights protest march which took place immediately after Trump was inaugurated. Since then, Soros has given money to pro-Democratic organizations, including the super PACs Planned Parenthood Votes, American Bridge 21st Century, and Immigrant Voters Win.
George Soros continues to support and fund democratic causes around the world through his Open Society Foundation through which he has given over $1 Billion, and https://www.georgesoros.com/.
