George Soros – Powerful Political Contributor And World Renowned Opinion Leader

George Soros is the founder of the “Open Society Foundation” and the founder and owner of the Soros Fund Management. Soros Fund Management was named as the most profitable company in the hedge fund sector with close to $30 Billion in assets under management and giving out returns annually at the rate of 20 percent for over four decades. George Soros, age 86, is an influential opinion leader, success hedge funder, investor, author and philanthropist. In the recent U.S. Presidential Elections, Soros supported Hillary Clinton’s campaign with all his resources. George Soros funded Clinton’s campaign directly and through Democratic Super PACs more than $24 million.

George Soros is among the richest in the world, and his net worth is estimated at $25.2 Billion. Currently, he is the 19th richest person in the world is the resident and citizen of the United States. Consistent with his support for social causes and immigrant reforms and eliminating racial disparity from the U.S. society, which Soros feels is one of the biggest problems of the country, Soros recently committed $500 million to support businesses started by refugees and immigrants on opensocietyfoundations.org. He feels personally for the immigrants and the refugees because he has gone through such plight himself after fleeing Hungary occupied then by Nazis. George Soros fled to London, where he joined London School of Economics and worked as a railway porter on the side. After graduating, he acceded to a merchant bank and that marked his beginnings in the world of finance, and the rest, as they say, is history.

To boost his career and advance in the field of finance, he moved to New York and worked in the Wall Street. In 1969, he established his first-ever hedge fund with $12 million that later came to be known as the Quantum Fund on project-syndicate.org. He is widely known for breaking the Bank of England in 1992 when he made a short sale of the company’s share in massive quantities, putting the Bank of England on the path of destruction. He is one of the most powerful and influential political contributors in the U.S. to liberal candidates. The victory of Donald Trump is something that upset him tremendously as he believes that his views, working style, and ideology would lead the United States backward, and may even cause national security risks because of his radical views on discoverthenetworks.org.

Numerous organizations and charities receive directly or through his first organization, Open Society Foundation, monetary contributions to support and promote the causes that align with those of George Soros. Some of the notable of these charities are Advancement Project, All of Us or None, America Coming Together, Black Alliance For Just Immigration, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, Brookings Institution, Ballot Initiative Strategy Center, Change America Now, Colors of Change, Common Cause, Constitution Project, and more.

World War II Survivor George Soros Creating Creative Ways To Fight Hate Speech Of Donald Trump

Billionaire George Soros is famous for breaking the bank of England. Back in the 90s, England was facing an economic downturn and Soros shorted the British pound to make $1 billion in profit. His partner in crime that day was a man named Stanley Druckenmiller. Stanley Druckenmiller still works for George Soros, managing a $2 billion hedge fund. So it raised some eyebrows when Stanley Druckenmiller and another longtime Soros employee donated almost half $1 million to the presidential campaign of Republican governor John Kasich.
What makes this highly unusual is that George Soros has a lifetime record of donating to and supporting liberal organizations and candidates. His money helped start MoveOn.org, and Open Society Foundation one of the most left-leaning organizations in the country. The organization has publicly endorsed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders and Soros himself has made an $8 million pledge to the Hillary Clinton camp. John Kasich, the man who labels himself as the reasonable Republican candidate this year, is still not a candidate Soros would endorse. This donation has enraged conservatives and confused liberals, but it all can be easily explained.

Soros has publicly stated on NYbooks his opposition to Republican front runners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Donald Trump is consuming a high number of delegates on the campaign trail and looks to be unstoppable, except for in Ohio. What’s important about Ohio is that it is a winner-take-all state. Unlike earlier voting states, the winner of the Ohio primary takes all delegates no matter how slim of a victorious margin. Previous states issued delegates proportionally so that every qualifying candidate earned delegates. If Kasich can beat Trump in Ohio he effectively steals delegates from the front runner.

But this is just how weird this presidential election season has been. George Soros, a world-famous liberal, is reported by Latino FoxNews now fighting on the same side as Marco Rubio, Mitt Romney, and the GOP establishment. The “Anyone But Trump” movement in the Republican Party has been pumping money into the Kasich campaign in order to pull off the upset victory in the winner take all state. Romney has even stumped for the governor throughout Ohio. The Rubio campaign is urging Ohio supporters to vote for Kasich in order to tip the balance. In one odd moment, Soros and the GOP are aligned.

This may have something to do with Trump’s divisive platform. He promises to build a wall and has flirted with the idea of setting up a registry for Muslims in the United States. This justifiably angers George  Soros who is himself a survivor of World War II and the Nazi occupation in his home country of Hungary. He and his family were forced to register by the Nazi government. Soros explicitly remembers the divisive rhetoric of the fascist regime and feels incredibly uncomfortable by the hate speech of Donald Trump. Soros fled Hungary for London and then the United States as a young man. He believes in acceptance and open borders. He believes in the capacity of refugees to do good. He stands in opposition to Donald Trump.
