In recent news, George Soros has been making great strides in reaching back as he has been doing for a few decades now. Being the founder of Open Society Foundations, he is a liberal billionaire who has given millions of dollars for both Clintons when both were running for the Presidential office, and he gave to various causes and the unfortunate throughout the globe.
A few years back, Soros assisted in the ‘black lives movement’. He participated in the Ferguson protest movement by mobilizing and funding groups throughout the US for years now. One year, he gave in excess of $33 million to support grass-roots establishments for activists for their ground support in Ferguson, Missouri. Mr. Zimmerman of Open Society Foundations stated that their organization has been giving to such groups since their organization’s establishment in the early 90s. However, Mr. Zimmerman also stated whatever is said or done at those protests is not dictated by this foundation. They didn’t have control over what they said or did. The various activists who all participated and were partly funded by Soros, included those from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago, from the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington, from the Drug Policy Alliance, from Sojourners, Equal Justice USA from New York, Make the Road New York, and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation that started in August 2015. George Soros established the Open Society Foundations.
In July 2016, it was reported through politico.com that Soros has reemerged in being a leading Democratic political party investor. For years, he scaled back in giving. However, he made a pledge of over $25 million in support of Hillary Clinton, other candidates of the Democratic party, and various causes. Before this assistance, his last excessive giving for politics happened in 2004 for $27 million in the attempts to defeat President George W. Bush. George Soros also had great faith in Hillary Clinton. He definitely didn’t want the now President Donald Trump to win the election fearing that he’s doing ISIS’s work. Michael Vachon, the political adviser of Soros, stated that the political stakes were really high for that election, and that it was even high before Donald Trump was nominated due to the hostility the other party had towards many issues Soros care the most about. Those issues of concern of Soros include criminal justice reform, religious tolerance, and immigration reform. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.
