George Soros Made a Strong Comeback with The 2016 Presidential Election

Posted on 19 February, 2017 in Political Advocates

George Soros is one the biggest business magnets and top 30 richest people from the USA. George Soros is the Chairman of Soros Fund Management and an active philanthropist as well as a political activist. He has donated more than $13 billion to numerous social and political causes through the last three decades supporting democracy and access to health and education. Even in 2004 election, he made a massive donation of $27 million to fight against the Bush campaign. George Soros was also the generous donor of Obama campaign as well.

However, Soros has been keeping in quiet for a long while when Bush won the election in 2004 on Forbes. But very recently he made a strong comeback in the political arena when Hillary was running a campaign against Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election. George Soros is a strong supporter of Hillary and has a serious concern regarding Trump. According to Soros, Trump is a conman and an imposter who was running the election for his personal benefits only, and he will force the nation into massive chaos in future. Hence, he made generous denotations in supporting Hillary and the Democratic campaign on opensocietyfoundations.org.

According to a number of sources, George Soros donated $7 million to Priorities USA Action. He also pledged to donate further $3 million to this super PAC that has been supporting Hillary in the election. In addition to this, he also donated $2 million to American Bridge 21st Century, opposition research PAC fighting Trump and another $2 million to America Votes that has been mobilizing voters. In addition to this, he also donated $700,000 to a group of committees, PACs and campaigns supporting the Democratic party on Politico. On top of that, Soros also donated $3 million to Immigrant Voters Win which has been working to increase participation from the Hispanic voters in key swing states. Another of his big contribution of $3 million went to a non-profit Voting Rights Trust which has been fighting against conservative moves to restrict voting. Soros also donated a total of $4.5 to three different PACs which were supporting Senate Majority, Democratic Senate, and Planned Parenthood. Above that, Soros also donated to numerous other organizations which are still not disclosed.

Although Soros and other Democratic supporters tried real hard, they were disappointed to see Trump as the new President. However, Soros is quite concerned with the Trump as he believes that he has built a cabinet with retired generals and incompetent extremists only. He is also worried that Trump drastically the tranquil scenario of the country with his new and irrational initiatives and jeopardize all the positive achievements made by the previous Democratic administration. Hence, he is working along with fellow Democratic supporters through Democracy Alliance that he founded in 2005. They are now having regular meetings and brainstorming sessions to develop strategies on how to deal with new Trump Administration in coming days and safeguard the best interest of the country. According to Soros, with strong resistance from US constitution and institutions, Trump will fail in near future. Hence, he is still going strong with his initiatives against Trump.
