Amid ongoing political environment in the country, George Soros is back from his political exile. In the political circle of the United States, George Soros became a household name as he invested nearly $27 Million to support John Kerry for becoming the American President, which didn’t happen.
Now, George Soros wants to help Hillary Clinton.
What Happened in 2004?
The massive investment raised eyebrows because most people only knew George Soros as one of the richest individuals in the United States who is famous for his mind-boggling investment decisions. Therefore, when Soros started to support initiatives for John Kerry’s presidency, everyone was surprised. However, George and his team knew what they wanted to do. They wanted to stop George W. Bush for becoming American President and ruining the lives of Millions of American and global citizens by going to war in Iraq and inflicting damage to the global regimes on Bloomberg. Instead, they wanted a gradual reform by pouring money to develop awareness by educational reforms in the developing countries. Unfortunately, the campaign did not result in the victory. Perhaps, it is yet another reason for the recent insecurity and political turmoil in many countries in the Middle East and surrounding region.
It is interesting to note that George Soros called the 2004 presidential campaign a matter of life and death because he knew that George Bush would disturb the World peace. After the election of George W. Bush, the billionaire, George Soros preferred a private life focusing on his investments.
George Soros Is Back
In 2016, it seems that George Soros is back once more. This time, he is even more eager to make a greater impact as he donated nearly $24 Million to Hillary’s campaign on Time. Analysts predict that the donation will likely increase in the coming months as the election day approaches. In fact, the recent funding campaign by George Soros has dual motives. First, it wants to stop Donald Trump from becoming an American President and pursue policy of intolerance and hate. Secondly, it wants to support initiatives and policies of Hillary Clinton that will help Americans come together to increase tolerance and gather awareness of their roles in a broader global society.
Already, George Soros has made it clear that Donald Trump is a bad choice for Americans. George has publicly denounced Donald Trump as a person promoting the agenda of ISIS by instilling hate among Americans on nytimes.com. Therefore, he has sided with Hillary Clinton to stop Trump’s rhetoric. Interestingly, George is a long time friend of Hillary Clinton. In fact, recent actions of George Soros are not surprising because George has spent more than $13 Billion in the last three decades on matters pertaining to healthcare and education. His support of immigration reform, criminal justice reform and religious tolerance is clear and straight-forward.
