With a lot of money comes a lot of influence. This is why the rumor goes around in the United States of America that those with the money control politics at how long is made. Perhaps nobody knows how true this exactly is except George Soros. George Soros has been known to bankroll of the left with his Open Society Foundation. Using this non-profit he has been a constant pain to the GOP during election season.
George Soros speak in his life financing his education as a real Porter so that he could go to the London School of economics. After graduating there, he would come to the United States of America and create a successful hedge-fund known as Soros fund management. As this has from the grow, so with his net worth. As of today, he is worth 23.2 billion dollars. It is that money that he uses to continue to sway politics to his liking.
George Soros has always been an ally to Democrats, and it shows every election season. In 2004 when John Kerry was running against George W Bush, George knew that he had to stop Bush from getting the presidency at all costs. He then gave to John Kerry’s campaign a record-breaking donation at 27 million dollars.

George Soros would return with his donations in the year 2008 to put Democrat in the white house after the Republicans ruined everything. This time he was struggling to decide who he should back. On the one hand was his longtime friend, Hillary Clinton, but on the other hand, was the rising star, Barack Obama. After going back and forth for some time, George Soros decided that he would fully back Barack Obama. Once Obama took office, George Soros regretted it. Obama was not pushing a strong enough liberal agenda, and George Soros felt that he had wasted his money.
In 2016, George Soros would return to the world of funny politics and back his friends Hillary Clinton so she could be Donald Trump for the White House. As we look back on History, we see that Trump was able to win the presidency and the even though George Soros give her 25 million dollars it was a not enough for her to get over that hump, and George Soros’s lacrosse camp.
For the time being, George Soros is no longer donating to elections. Instead, he is doing what he can to thwart the Trump presidency. He has used his Mass Fortune to fund and organize several different protest marches which have stalled Trump’s legislation. One such protest was the pink hat women’s March that occurred the day of Trump’s inauguration. He would use the Open Society Foundation to donate to Super Pacs that promote Hispanic rights, women’s rights, and civil rights, and his Website.
George Soros will continue to promote the cause for the left and the values that he holds so dear through his non-profit the Open Society Foundation, and http://fortune.com/2017/10/17/george-soros-open-society-18-billion/.
