George Soros Donates $25 Million to Liberal Causes

A hedge fund multi-billionaire, George Soros, is donating $25 million to Democratic Party to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid as well as other party candidates. This is not only meant to support Mrs. Clinton herself, but liberal causes such as support for immigration and criminal justice reform.

Religious tolerance is also high on Soros’ agenda. Coming from a Jewish family, he grew up in Nazi-occupied Hungary from where he moved to the United Kingdom, and then America where he amassed a $25 billion fortune in the financial markets. George Soros is also an advocate for Middle Eastern refugees, most of whom are young men.

No wonder he abhors Donald Trumps, a real estate billionaire who wants to build a wall with Mexico and stop Muslim migration to the United States. This is not the first time this mega rich financier throws his vast wealth into politics. Back in 2004, Soros spent $27 million in failed campaigns aiming to unseat George W. Bush.

George Soros is recognized as a financial markets guru. In 1992, his fund made well over a billion dollars in a single day on a bet against the British Pound. Over the decades, Soros’ hedge fund Soros Fund Management has returned above market returns, beating nearly all other funds.

This 85-year-old financier has media closely follow his statements, whether about finance or political issues. Foundations which George Soros sponsors operate in more than 100 countries and seek to bring their liberal agendas over there. This often happens in opposition to existing governments. It has even come to the point where Russia asked these foundations to leave after claiming they’re a threat to a national security.

No wonder Soros supports Clinton on investopedia.com. If her campaign trails Trump’s in the polls, he’s likely to help with raising more millions, especially from the leftist circles he’s well acquainted with. Will his money make a difference this time or will it be 2004 all over again? That is yet to be seen.
