Soros and Politics
George Soros pledged and gave more than $27million in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Soro mainly did this to help Hillary to defeat Donald Trump, whom George Soros says plays the role of ISIS by invoking fear in people. Soros dedication to supporting Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaigns was viewed as a good sign as it would influence other rich activists to give in the same direction. The elite liberal donors, who also gave towards the course are Tom Steyer, who donated $31 million in 2016 and Don Sissman, who gave $13.2 million to campaigns and committees. Fred Eycher and Haim Saban, the moguls, also gave $ 11.1million each. All these helped Clinton’s campaigns and made them Dwarf Donald Trump’s. Soros giving and mobilization towards Clinton was also accredited to the courses that Soros has worked hard to defend for many years. These courses include justice reform, immigration reform, and religious tolerance as state.
