George Soros, the New York-based hedge fund manager, is considered as one of the most politically powerful people on the earth. His influence on politics and philanthropy is not only felt in the U.S. but other countries as well.Since the early 1980’s, Soros has used his power to help re-shape the political landscapes of various countries across the world. In some cases, George Soros has been responsible for toppling bad regimes that cling onto power by stealing elections. We can, therefore, put it down with a lot of confidence that George Soros currently affects the American politics and culture than any other individual.George Soros has worked and spent a huge portion of his life in the United States where he has managed to cut a niche for himself navigating the hedge fund markets since 1969. George spent much of his time working in New York where he is a familiar figure in the Greenwich Village area.
The Forbes reports that much of the Soro’s influence comes from the $13 billion personal fortune which is backed by Soro’s Fund Management brand that is estimated to manage assets worth over $30 billion. George has used these funds to create his network of charitable and political groups that he largely donates to under the Open Society Foundations banner that was established in 1984.In a recent article published on the Politico, close buddies and advisers revealed that Soros had become more politically engaged than he has been for years. They say that George Soros feels that the world isn’t going in the right direction. People are tired of the tyrannical rule, and there is the need to change the status quo.
George Soro’s political activity heightened in 2015, 2016 and now 2017 after President Trump took over the office as the president of U.S. during the recently concluded presidential campaign, George made huge donations to Clinton’s campaign where was seeking to become the first female president of the United States.The Soro’s support was spread across some different groups that include a series of donations that were made directly to Clinton’s campaign. The total financial aid channeled to these campaigns amounted to $25 million by the time elections were taking place.As an ardent supporter of the Democratic Party, the future of this political party is what made Soros spend a fortune while supporting their candidates. George Soros’s political activity comes after ten years when he campaigned for the ousting of President George Bush.
