One of the most prominent names in the field of politics in the United States is George Soros. Even though he is not a politician himself, George Soros has helped many politicians in moving up the ranks in the country’s political ladder through his support. As a democratic supporter, he continues to finance the election campaigns of the Democrats and help with the implementation of reforms that he honestly feels for. In the last few decades, George Soros has improved with the financing of election campaigns of many Democrats that have directly or indirectly led to powering the Democrats in the national political scenario. Even though he retracted his political giving after his failed attempt to stop Barack Obama from re-election during his Presidential bid, George Soros spent nearly $30 million to help Hillary Clinton in 2016 Presidential Election.
The defeat of Hillary Clinton in her run for Presidency did dishearten him as he was always against the Donald Trump, it didn’t discourage him enough to stop moving forward and continue with the philanthropic efforts he has been making and the reforms he wants to implement in the country. George Soros is a wealthy hedge funder and the amount of wealth he has accumulated over the years has helped him become a leading political donor in the country, and also one of the most prominent philanthropists in the world. George Soros funded Open Society Foundations in 1979 with the aim to make a positive impact in society we live in by fuelling funds into the charities that need it to help with the causes that George Soros feels for.
George Soros believes that even though the world has moved ahead in many different departments, the problems like racial disparity, injustice, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, minorities’ rights, and many others, still exist. George Soros believes that these problems can go away once and for all if there are proper reforms implemented constitutionally to ensure that the rights of the people are protected. He is determined to achieve his goals, and to that extent, he has even transferred $18 Billion to Open Society Foundations to ensure that the organizations and charities that are working towards the same objective as he is well-funded to help him achieve his goals. George Soros has also pledged to provide $500 million to various start-ups and businesses that are founded by refugees and immigrants to help them restart their lives and find that ray of hope in a new country they now call their own.
George Soros has had a very rocky journey to success, starting from escaping death during his teen years in his homeland Hungary during Nazis occupation to witnessing both the World Wars. It is what has given him a very startling yet realistic view of the transformation in political sphere and how it should be. It is what motivates the moves made by George Soros as he believes that capitalism is not what the people or the world wants anymore because it is a threat that the world should identify today before its too late.
