The motives of a number of political donors in the U.S. can often be difficult to define, but the well-known liberal and donor to a number of Democrat’s George Soros seemed to show in 2015 and 2016 that he was dedicated to fighting on behalf of Democrat Hillary Clinton, but also a dedicated anti Donald Trump campaigner. For George Soros any free and open election should be fought over more than simply the personality of those on the ballot, but should also see every voter looking to explore the values and policies of the individuals and parties they are running on behalf of; after being let down by the lack of liberal causes pushed forward by President barrack Obama, Soros has made it his personal crusade to make sure the liberal causes the Hungarian born financial expert has held dear throughout his life.

Politico reports George Soros made his initial decision to back the campaign of former Secretary of State Clinton for the 2016 Presidential election campaign was based on his own sense of having made a mistake in backing President Barrack Obama in 2008 over Clinton. Clinton and Soros are reported to have built a strong political relationship over the course of three decades that returned to full levels of cooperation when Clinton was preparing for her run at The White House in the buildup to the 2016 election cycle; aides for Clinton have reported former refugee George Soros was given an open line to the former First Lady in a bid to make sure her own vision for the future of the U.S. reflected the policies George Soros hoped to see put into place. Although he is now a U.S. citizen the Hungarian born George Soros has always been willing to fight for the rights of those within the U.S. and those affected by U.S. policies across the planet.
Although it is easy to express the support George Soros has shown for Hillary Clinton across the 2016 election cycle, the antipathy he feels for now President Donald Trump is also easy to see as Soros has been a fierce critic of the newly elected President. One of the major ways Soros looked to fight the rise of Trump has been through the mobilization of wealthy Democrat donors from across the U.S. Despite the victory of President Trump in 2016 the work to fight his right wing agenda looks set to continue for George Soros and his fellow members of the Democracy Alliance group of Democrat supporters who met soon after the election was completed in a bid to formulate plans for returning Democrat’s to power in Washington and fighting the right wing plans of Trump.
