George Soros a billionaire trader is seen again contributing into political campaigns, something that he has not done since 2004. In 2004, Soros contributed millions in an attempt to oust George Bush and has not been spending as much on politics after that failed attempt. In the Obama Campaigns, he donated only $1M which was not much compared to what he is known to spend on his political agendas. Over the years he has been contributing to democratic groups on opensocietyfoundations.org but nothing that can be compared to his giving for the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Soros is quoted to have regrets in supporting Obama by his $1M donation and took the Hillary Campaign as his opportunity to return. He donated over $25M to Hillary Campaign and other Democratic agendas in 2016. Many of the people predicted that, that was just but the beginning and he would be giving more as the elections neared. According to some, George Soros wanted to push the Hillary Clinton agenda and he also feared what would be of the country if Trump won the elections. For this reason, the stakes were high and he gave more to support Clinton.
In his campaign to aid Hillary, he associated Trump and Cruz to terrorism. He is quoted saying that they are “doing the work of ISIS” in a world Economic Forum at http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/george-soros-democratic-convention-226267. He said that the two are instilling fear into the people and hindering their judgement making them to respond to things out of fear. He also contributed towards helping the immigrants to counteract their attack by the Trump campaign. George Soros donated $500M as investment in this sector and stated that it is the government’s duty to help such people.
Like every other supporter of Clinton, things changed drastically after the announcement of the elections results. The trump victory hit Soros hard. Soros and all the other major investors into the Clinton campaign held a meeting in Washington D.C after the election. The meeting had been planned prior to the elections but upon the announcement of the results, they had to change their agenda for the meeting. Instead of meeting to plan Clinton’s days in office and celebrate the victory, they meet to plan how to oppose Trump. It was now time to play defense against the president elect. This would not only benefit them but help them to protect the Obama Legacy and the good work that he started.
In addition to plotting their defense, they meet to evaluate how they lost. As one of the members said; such when someone losses a battle that they had already won, there must have been serious mistakes made. For this they needed to find out how and why they lost to Trump on Forbes. Since then, Soros and his group of investors have done nothing but to try and overcome Trump in order to safe guard their democratic interests.
