George Soros Speaks Out
Money tends to make a lot of noise. Such is the case with investor George Soros. One of the world’s richest men thanks to his canny investments, Soros has again come out from the shadows. He has stepped up lately, according to an article on CNN, to speak out in this highly busy political season. While a native of Hungary, Soros has also taken an interest in many countries around the world. This includes the United Kingdom where he was an outspoken critic against Brexit or exiting from the European Union. It also includes the United States where he has chosen to make his voice heard and his viewpoints known. As those in America start to head towards the conclusion of an election cycle on Investopedia, he is right there with them both as a participant in the election as someone who has chosen to donate a lot of money to one party.
Soros is someone who has amassed a large fortune. His money was made by correctly predicting the fall of the British pound in the mid-1990’s. By betting against it, he was able to see his own stock rise. In the aftermath of his decision to bet against the pound, George Soros has continued to see his own stock rise in the United States and Europe. His latest foray has been one into the world of politics where he is a much sought after speaker and pundit. Many people find it useful to listen to his thoughts on the matter. Perhaps less surprisingly, many of those running for office also find it helpful to get funding from him. This is very much the case with one of the major parties in the United States. The Democrats have turned to him for help in this particular election cycle.
Helping The Dems
In particular, George Soros has been a major supporting of Democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton. He has donated over twenty-five million dollars to her campaign alone, making him one of the largest of all donors to her campaign and one of the largest donors to any party in the entire United States. While Soros watches from Europe, he also keeps a close eye on conditions in the United States. Certain issues in this presidential campaign are issues that he feels strongly about and wishes to see implemented. Soros is of the opinion that Donald Trump, the nominee of the Republican party, is someone who will not be a good fit for the needs of the United States and the good of the entire world. Soros has decided that it makes sense for him to speak out against Trump’s candidacy and in favor of electing Democrat Hillary Clinton to office instead.
