The 2016 Presidential Election galvanized American politics in a way that we have never seen before. Supporters on both sides of the spectrum flocked to back their candidate while big wigs in Washington tried to establish themselves. As these mega parties did battle in Washington over speeches and carefully orchestrated ads one powerful and incredible figure re-joined the fray: George Soros. George Soros is one of the most inspiring democrats in America and his return to support the party is nothing short of monumental. Let’s take a look at how Soros impacted the 2016 election, what his thoughts are going forward under President Trump, and what he plans to do next in his own life.
You don’t often hear of billionaire activists in America but George Soros fits that bill 100%. Soros has long been a humanitarian that puts his money where his politics are, pushing to establish human decency wherever he can impact it. Soros came to mainstream fame during the 2004 Presidential Election which featured George W. Bush and democratic runner Al Gore. Soros spent nearly $27 million to see President Bush defeat but that didn’t quite happen — not without controversy. After the election Mr. Soros decided that he wanted to take a backseat and monitor from afar rather than pour so much money into politics. The rise of a potential President Trump ended up changing his mind.
When Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump were at their most heated at the podium it was George Soros who was trying to keep things even keeled. Billionaire mega donors used to be the exclusive tool of the right wing, but Mr. Soros was determined to even the odds. Though his work would be in vain, as President Trump would soon take office, Mr. Soros was determined to stay involved and stay focused. While democrats may hve lost the White House in 2016, they regained a powerful and influential member of their party with an active George Soros regaining his involvement.
As President Trump continues what he passes for being ‘Presidential George Soros and other liberal donors are focused on bringing the fight back to Washington. Most recently we saw the Democracy Alliance Donor Club meet together in Washington at the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Here Soros nd other elite donors got together in order to gameplan ways to bring democracy and progressive values back to Washington. Learn more about his profile at businessinsider.com.
This will be the first huge gathering that the group has had since President Trump has taken office and it is due in large part to the insane first 100 days of the controversial President Trump. Among the topics that the group discussed includes climate change, voter suppression, and President’s Trump assault on the legacy that President Obama had left behind. Exit polls show that the bulk of President Trump’s voting bloc doesn’t really care for any of these important values. You can rest assured that George Soros and the rest of his group will work tirelessly to get things leveled once again in time for the 2020 Presidential Elections.
