For Republicans and Donald Trump, the return of the billionaire George Soros is not a good omen. After years of absence from trying to dictate the political affairs of the United States, George Soros is back to support the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. As the head of Soros family, George has a net worth of nearly $25 billion, which is mainly the result of shrewd investment strategies. Using his wealth to support several non-profits, reports from Federal Election Commission suggest that George is actively contributing to Hillary’s presidential campaign. So far, he has invested nearly $25 million to support Hillary’s presidential nomination.
Analysts, who know George Soros, admit that he has returned because he thinks that his contribution to the Democratic Party on nytimes.com can save the American People and the World from a fledgling future. In fact, there are three main reasons why George wants Hillary to become President. First, George has always fought against Presidential candidates who publicly claim that going to war is better than resolving issues on the table. In 2004, George Soros unsuccessfully spent nearly $27 Million to support John Kerry against George W. Bush. The primary reason for supporting Kerry was the intention of George W. Bush to wage aggressive military campaigns against other nations. As a result, George Soros sees even greater hate in the eyes of Donald Trump, who wants to deal with others, aggressively.
Besides, the second reason for George Soros to return to political affairs on Twitter is an indication that Trump will thwart social causes that George Soros has dedicated his life to. For instance, George actively supports immigration reform, criminal justice reform and religious intolerance. It seems that Donald Trump has very little concerns for these issues. Likewise, Donald Trump is eager to resolve issues using his powers instead of an intellectual reform. In contrast, George Soros has spent nearly $13 billion in Eastern Europe to defend human rights and shape the democratic process in the region. Just like Eastern Europe, George wants to develop the intellectual capital in the third-world and troubled economies.
A third reason for the return is George’s acknowledgement of Hillary Clinton’s policies. As a long-time friend of Hillary Clinton, George Soros feels that he can advise Clinton on important national policy matters. As such, it is notable that George Soros did not show any interest in politics even when Obama was in charge because he might not have seen himself capable of contributing anything worthwhile.
For Republicans, George Soros is their leading boogeyman because he has the will and the money to fight against the cause he does not believe in. Only time will tell if he succeeds; however, George’s commitment to the American interest remains strong and unwavering.
