In 2016, George Soros made headlines at Politico in July, August and November. Politico is a well regarded journalism magazine/website; it covers in-depth topics related to newsworthy people and places. Those worthy of discussing in the area of political issues and polices. In a Politico article entitled, “Soros bands with donors to resist Trump, ‘take back power’ George drew international attention.
Soros is oblivious to the “whispers’ behind closed doors that Politico referenced involving an impromptu meeting with union heads and Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren and Keith Ellison. It was reported that George Soros’ funding caused a great deal of conservative panic, due to the sheer size of his contributions. And some “political pundits” even tried in vain to paint George Soros as a conservative villain. A man who’s out to spoil the aspirations of Republicans everywhere.
However much attention his donations garner on nytimes.com, Soros remains unfazed; he continues to devote time to political giving. One thing that makes his financial contributions standout even more, is the fact that Soros himself is a beacon against a backdrop of dark and murky politics. A backdrop that at times is mired with growing tensions. Soros is and has always been an important Democratic backer. All because he believes that their agendas can help to strengthen this country.
As a self-made Hungarian-American billionaire, Soros could just keep his money to himself and simply enjoy his retirement at http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/. But, instead of sinking down or fading out in later years, George Soros came out of retirement and back into active trading. And with that return, he also went on record, throwing $25 million of financial support behind Hilary Clinton and the Democrats, during the crucial months leading up to the November election. Clinton is someone who Soros views as a worthy presidential candidate and more importantly, as a friend. No other opponent received a greater financial donation from a single donor, than what George Soros pledged to the Democratic candidates.
At 86, George Soros has returned to the media spotlight for his backing of Clinton. Given the fact that Soros was an absentee from the world of political giving on project-syndicate.org, since 2004. That was the last time he made headlines when it emerged that Soros donated $27 million dollars in a failed bid to upset the re-election efforts of George W. Bush.
The latest news concerning George Soros’ donation is that money is being, “retooled” in hopes of somehow finding a way to “resist the Trump administration.”
George Soros certainly isn’t a stranger to going into territory no other donor dare venture. Some pundits started referring to Soros as the “conservative boogeyman.” He was not deterred by their criticism of his support of the Democrats on Time. In fact, because he backed Obama against Clinton, he wanted to publicly support her campaign. Hilary Clinton and George Soros have a relationship that spans 25 years. When she accepted the Democratic nomination, Soros was scheduled to listen to her speak. But, other financial commitments forced him to cancel that trip. Learn more about his profile at Forbes.com.
