As you know, Americans voted in 2016. What you don’t know, is that the political game had many players and George Soros was one of them. He was not vying for any electoral position of course, but he was involved as a sponsor.
George is a Democrat supporter and enthusiast, and he had pledged money to the Hilary Clinton’s campaign. In 2004, he did the same as he didn’t want George Bush to win. He had committed approximately $27 million to the 2004 elections, but George Bush won the presidency. He later disappeared from the limelight although he continued to support the Democratic Party causes.
He came back so that he could support Hilary Clinton. There are three major reasons; his long term relationship with Clinton, his trust and faith in her and the fear of Trump winning. His opinion of Donald Trump is what motivated him to commit over $25 million to the campaign to promote Hilary’s popularity among the different states. He has on more than one occasion accused Trump to be in support of ISIS- a terrorist group on Politico. George didn’t support Hilary only but all the other candidates as well.
His reaction to the election
Despite the hard work and commitment shown by Hilary and the rest of the party members, she lost the elections to Donald Trump who is set to be inaugurated on January 20th, 2017. George Soros and the rest of the sponsors and other Democrat supporters scheduled a meeting to discuss the results. They met for a three-day conference to try and find a strategy to fight back Trump.
The liberals on BusinessInsider are planning to fight Trump from day one after he takes the oath of office. They want to focus their efforts to thwarting his plans which they have termed as an assault to President Obama’s achievements.
Soros has stated that he is committed to investing his time and money to oppose Trump.
George Soros has been reported to be among the 30 richest people in America. The self-billionaire was born in Hungary but later relocated to England for his studies 1947. After his immigration, he attended the London school of Economics where he did his Bachelor of Science in Philosophy and later Master of Science in the same subject.
After graduating, he couldn’t find a job so he ended up settling for a salesman at the wholesale shop. During this time he wrote letters to all the managers of the Merchant Bank on Forbes. Most of the letters were ignored, but one day he got a positive reply. He was offered an entry level job at the Merchant Bank, and that marked the beginning of his career. Later in 1956 he moved to New York City in U.S.
In 1970, George Soros founded the Soros Fund Management, and he served as the chairman of the fund. He did resign from Double Eagle Fund in 1973 because he couldn’t manage two funds. After that, he focused on growing the Soros Fund.
