The 2016 Presidential election was one of the most intense elections in history. While Donald Trump was the eventual winner, his victory was a disappointment and concern of millions of people. Many notable public figures have shown their distaste and disappointment in the decision. One person that has been clearly disappointed in the results has been George Soros.
In the weeks following the election, George Soros has made a lot of bold statements about Donald Trump and the election results. Soros has continued to state that he does not trust Trump and that he believes that Trump is a con man. Soros has stated that he believes that the next four years with Trump will be very unpredictable and that even Trump likely has no idea what he will attempt to achieve.
Similar to other people, Soros believes that Trump did not expect to win the primary or the general election on Snopes. Instead, it is believed that Trump was focused on building his personal brand in order to boost his businesses across the globe. Now that he is in office, many believe that Trump will be taking an approach to the presidency that will be very controversial. Fortunately, the infrastructure of the US government will make it hard for Trump to complete many of the tasks that he has alluded to.
George Soros is best known for founding and managing his own hedge fund company, Soros Funds. In his 50 years managing the company, he has personally amassed a net worth in excess of $25 billion, which has made him one of the wealthiest people in the world. While he is best known for his success in business, Soros is also recognized as being leading political and social activists on Business Insider.
Soros, who is from Hungary originally and spent much of his life living in the United Kingdom, has spent a lot of time focusing on the US economy and political landscape on Forbes. Soros has been a very vocal supporter of Democratic candidates over the past few election cycles. During the 2004 election, George Soros was a strong supporter of a bid to unseat George Bush. During the 2008 primaries, George Soros gave a considerable amount of money to the Hillary Clinton campaign, which ultimately lost to Barak Obama.
Soros’ most significant contributions likely came during the most recent presidential election process. Soros reportedly has donated over $10 million to the Clinton campaign and raised millions of additional dollars from wealthy democrats. After the election, Soros was involved in the organization of a last-minute meeting between Democratic Party leaders in an attempt to develop a plan for the party’s future.
