George Soros has recently been discussed heavily in popular media outlets like Forbes Magazine for his quiet resurgence into the world of philanthropic efforts targeting democratic presidential nominees and other democratic politicians. The billionaire was famously displeased with his drastic effort to defeat former President George W. Bush back in the early 2000s. During these efforts, Soros spent a record $25 million on the campaigns of Al Gore and John Kerry. After the failure of both these campaigns, Soros continued to support liberal causes and campaigns, but not nearly on as large a scale as he had supported the liberal agenda in the early 2000s.

Recently, however, with the nomination of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump to the democratic and republican presidential tickets, Soros has entered the field of political philanthropy with a vengeance. The billionaire has reportedly spent an estimated $15 million in collective contributions to Clinton’s presidential campaign and other democratic issues. Although Clinton eventually lost the presidential campaign to, now, President Donald J. Trump, Soros has continued to donate large amounts of money to support the liberal agenda. Soros’ financial involvement in the political arena has, infact, increased substantially since Trump’s election. The billionaire has made it his mission to fight against the Trump-led government that he believes is a promoter of hatred, bigotry, and elitism. In his most recent political philanthropic effort, Soros donated millions of dollars to the funding of college education for foreign students.
When asked about his donation to a fund providing educational resources for foreigners who are attending college in the United States, George Soros stated that the fund was extremely vital to the resistance he hopes to bring about in the United States. As a foreigner himself, Soros understands the difficulties that foreigners can face during college stays in the United States. Soros stated that he hoped to offset the efforts made by the Trump administration to isolate minorities and foreigners by contributing greatly to funds like these. The billionaire believes that funds that support the education of foreigners will help these students to study without the burden of holding full time jobs to support their education. He also believes these funds can help foreigners to develop essential skills needed to provide for their families and citizens of their home nations. Soros believes that empathy to foreigners, instead of opposition and malice, will improve the conditions of the lives of foreigners and of the American economy. The billionaire has made his intentions of resisting the efforts of the Trump administration for the next four years abundantly clear by describing his plan of action. Soros intends to fully fund and back as many liberal programs as possible in the coming years, and with nearly unlimited resources available to him he represents a serious threat to his opponents.
