George Soros Has Invested More Than $25 Million To Defeat Conservatives This Election Year

When billionaire investor and philanthropist, George Soros, dumped more than $27 million into the Democratic Party to defeat George Bush in 2004 and lost, he stopped spending that kind of money to back politicians. But something happened this election year to change his mind. That something was Donald Trump. Soros has invested more than $25 million in 2016 to defeat conservatives at all levels of government, according to the Federal Election Commission. And according to Politico, the 85-year-old multi-billionaire is not done yet. Soros and Hillary Clinton go back 25 years, and he wants her in the White House.

George Soros is used to getting what he wants. Soros is one of the shrewdest investors in the hedge fund industry. Soros has put more than $25 billion in his bank account over the last 60 years, and he’s not afraid to spend millions on causes he believes in. George is banking that his donations to Democratic candidates running for House and Senate seats as well as his donations for liberals running for other offices at state levels will pay off this year. The Hungarian-born Soros wants to reform the justice system on, and his donations to certain state races will help do that in his opinion.

Reading the life story of George Soros is liking reading a modern day rag to riches journey that is almost too good to be true, but it is. Soros left Hungary to get away from the Nazis. He landed in London, and he became a waiter. He enrolled in the London School of Economics, and George earned a degree in philosophy. London wasn’t his final destination in the 1950s. Soros saved enough money to travel to New York and he found a job on Wall Street. Soros developed an investment strategy that others have mimicked over the years because it works. When Soros bet that the pound sterling would depreciate when the euro was introduced in the 1970s, his hedge fund made $7 billion, and he pocketed $1 billion in commissions. Soros hasn’t stopped making big bets ever since then.

Soros is best known for his economic forecasts and for founding his Open Society Foundation. The Soros Open Society Foundation’s main mission is to spread democracy in countries where dictatorships and communism are still the rules of law. George is dedicated to making every country a democratic country and he is spending billions of dollars to make that happen. George recently announced he would invest $500 million in businesses that were started by refugees or businesses that helped migrants. His nonprofit organizations will help identify those new startups. Soros knows what it feels like to be a refugee, and how hard it is to start over again. The man that “broke the Bank of England” is doing all he can to help solve the migration crisis.
