There is a great connection between the American politics with the business mogul George Soros. This is due to his vast influence of over 30 years as an international liberal supporter, of the Democrat’s policies, ideas, and causes. George, who according to Forbes is estimated to be worth $25.2 billion, uses his wealth in his political activism through his Open Society Foundations to donate and fund political and social organizations that promote change and democracy.Once again, Soros who is the chairman and founder of Soros Fund Management, and Open Society Foundations respectively (George Soros) has made a comeback, in funding political campaigns more engaged and motivated than ever before. This was after the 2004 campaigns where he objected the election of George Bush. His influence in reconstructing the political rhythm has been recently witnessed in the Hillary Clinton campaigns, where he funded heavily over $25 billion according to Politico.com. Soros has been in the front line fighting for democracy, this can explain why his friendship with Hillary has lasted over 25 years,and the reason for funding her campaigns.
More funding is evident as the Federal Electoral commission (FEC) indicates that more than $ 2 million was donated to Trump’s and other Republican’s opposing research firm.It appears that Soros was more energized with the American politics last year as confirmed through Politico.com.This is because he funded $5 million to the Immigrant Voters Win that mobilizes the Hispanians to vote for Hillary. All this funding is an indication that not only is Hillary his preferred candidate, but they also share the same ideals.Soros, a Hungarian was born during the Nazi regime before migrating to London. He is a graduate of the London School of Economics where he educated himself due to his humble background. This education has played a crucial role in his career life in the finance and has seen him move from an employee to a billionaire investor.
