After taking a step back from the world of political contributions George Soros has decided to donate $25 million to Hillary Clinton and other democrats running for office. While Soros has a long history of supporting various political causes throughout the years across the world he has relaxed his political contributions in recent years. With this donation he returns to his position as the most prominent contributor to Democratic candidates on Politico. According to associates of Soros he may contribute even more money before election day comes around. The political contributions coincide with George Soros making a return to trading.
The decision to return to politics is likely motivated by a mixture of his long term relationship with Clinton and his fear of her rival Donald Trump. Soros has publicly stated that he thinks the words of Donald Trump will actually do much of the work ISIS needs done by demonizing Islam. This isn’t the first time George Soros has fought for the causes of immigration reform or religious tolerance. As a victim of the Holocaust he is keenly aware of how hateful rhetoric can bring about tragedy on an international level.
George Soros has consistently stood as a financial contributor to political causes across the world. George Soros has helped his native country of Hungary peacefully transition into a free market democracy and played a major role in spreading the free market throughout eastern Europe. Over the course of 85 years George Soros has built himself a nearly $25 billion on wsj.com. He achieved this success through the amazing accuracy of his predictions and his own personal hedge fund. His hedge fund operates throughout the world and maintains profits even during some of the worst economic conditions imaginable. With the track record Soros currently has this political contribution gives Hillary Clinton something to smile about.
