George Soros has been a large Democratic donor for years. Soros spent millions to keep George W. Bush out of the White House. When Bush was elected, Soros decided to step back from the political scene for a while. But when his friend Hillary Clinton decided to run for president in 2016, Soros pulled his checkbook out once again. The final amount that Mr. Soros donated to the Democratic Party in 2016 is a very big number. Some reports say Soros spent more than $14 million to help elect Democrats that were running for office in several states.
More than $8 million of that $14 million donation went to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, according to several sources. Soros was also concerned about House and Senate seats. He even donated money to Democrats that were running for District Attorney positions. George wanted liberal candidates to crush the Republicans. He believed that the Democrats would beat Donald Trump. He thought his party would gain enough seats to control the Senate. But he was wrong. The words “Soros” and “losing” usually aren’t in the same sentence. But Trump’s campaign put those words together, even though Trump was fighting a wall of money, compliments of the big donors in the Democratic Party.
But George Soros isn’t giving up. He is still holding Trump accountable for his anti-immigration stance, his anti-Muslim position. The election might be over, but George Soros and the Democratic Alliance Donor Club are still holding Trump accountable for his actions and policies. Soros may have lost the battle, but he hasn’t lost the war for human rights. Soros decided to donate $10 million to fight hate crimes. That donation is a direct response to Trump’s racist’s comments and ideas.
Mr. Soros has been on a quest to stop racism for years. Soros founded the Open Society Foundation more than 40 years ago to help people that were living under communism and dictatorships. The Open Society Foundation donates more than $500 million a year to spread Democracy around the world.
Life has been good to 86-year-old George Soros, but it hasn’t always been that way. He was born in Hungary. He was living there during the Nazi occupation. George’s father was able to get phony papers so Soros could leave the country. When George arrived in England, he went to work in a restaurant. He enrolled in the London School of Economics, and he earned a degree in philosophy. He moved to the United States in the 1950s, and he got a job on Wall Street. That’s when his years as an investor began.
George Soros recently earmarked $500 million to help migrants start a new life. That money will help migrants get started in the business world.
