George Soros: The All-Time Philanthropist and Influencer of American Politics

George Soros and American politics are one and the same thing. Not a single major political event in America passes without an input from Soros, the big time philanthropist, author, and billionaire. For over 30 years, Soros financial support has influenced many political events and social concerns in the U.SA.

The Hilary Clinton Donald Trump Duel

Not a man to just watch the American politics and remain inactive, Soros put $25 million to backing Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party candidates in the historic Hilary Clinton- Donald Trump duel. As a result of Soros’s finances, Clinton and her GOP allies were able to launch a vigorous campaign against Trump, with Hilary winning the popular vote.

According to Politico, the willingness by Soros to fund the Democratic Party in the 2016 elections is nothing but an impressive show of “George Soros Rises Again”. There should be reasons to see Soros as making a comeback in the arena of political financing. In the 2004 campaigns, Soros gave $27 million to try and defeat George Bush. The spending spree on politics resurfaced unabated in 2016 for Soros was the main sponsor of Democratic politics.

Money Fighting for Civil Rights and Freedom

That Soros is a liberal democrat who believes in civil rights for all the Americans is never in doubt. The Washington Times details how George Soros was at the center of the Ferguson protests. Soros’ financial support and influence was seen when thousands of people poured on the streets to protest the shooting of an unarmed Michael Brown by the police officer Darren Wilson. The liberal business magnate and owner of an investment empire in Europe have also developed a political machine associated with American nonprofit foundations thus influencing American politics and social policies daily.

According to the Washington Times, Soros’ several years of funding the civil rights groups across America can explain why the Ferguson protests gripped several major cities. In one year alone, the businessman gave $33 million to groups promoting grassroots activism. The financial aid from Soros is the fuel that spurs the civil rights movement thus ensuring that every American enjoys the rights enshrined in the constitution.

George Soros Donates Millions Of Dollars To Clinton’s Campaigns

George Soros has donated more than $25 million to facilitate Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The money will also be used to fund other Democratic candidates and causes. This is the first time, in 12 years, that the billionaire has been directly involved in politics. In 2004, he made headlines when he donated $27 million to a Democratic candidate in an attempt to thwart the reelection of the then president, George W. Bush.

This donation is expected to significantly transform Clinton’s campaign on topics.wsj.com. It will enable the candidate to reach a wider segment of the society by herself or her campaigners. This will see her sell her policies more effectively, thus increasing her chances of winning the coming elections. According to sources close to the billionaire, it is believed that this is the first of many donations that the billionaire will be making to the Democratic fundraising operatives. George Soros has very deep pockets considering that he made over $25 billion through risky currency trades.

After his preferred candidate’s defeat in 2004, the billionaire did not make other political donations. It is believed that the disappointment made him focus his attention on making money for himself and his investors rather than be involved in politics on project-syndicate.org. However, his distaste of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, has seen him rise again as a major donor to the Democratic fundraising operatives.

After making the donations, Soros was expected to attend his first-ever Democratic convention. By attending the convention, he would have the chance to watch Clinton give her acceptance speech. However, this did not happen. According to sources close to him, the conference on politico.com coincided with the volatile economic situation in Europe. This meant that the billionaire had to monitor the situation.

The increased involvement of Soros in politics is believed to be due to two main factors. First, is his long relationship with the Clinton family? Second, is the fear that Donald Trump will become United States’ president? Soros has personally accused Trump of ‘doing the work of ISIS’ by instilling fear among Americans. In addition, George Soros is strongly against Trump’s policies on immigration, criminal justice and religious tolerance.

The huge donation made by Soros will influence other wealthy individuals to donate to the Democratic fundraising operatives. The increased donations will enable Hillary Clinton to reach every corner of the United States for campaigns and boost her chances of winning against Donald Trump. Clinton’s presidential campaign team was extremely pleased with the donation.
