Billionaire George Soros is Determined to Stop Trump From Winning Presidency

With his blunt racist remarks on, billionaire and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s number of critics grow every day. An increasing number of billionaires, including Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates and George Soros are vocal in their criticism of Trump.

According to Forbes, George Soros, one of the most successful hedge-fund managers in the world, has spent millions to defeat Trump in the polls. Soros, who advocates for human rights, government transparency and democracy, says that Donald Trump is threatening the values in America with nativism and xenophobia. Soros echoed the thoughts of many Americans when he expressed feeling offended by the extreme anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim speeches heard from Republican candidates on, such as Trump.

In a clear effort to try to defeat Trump at the voting booth in November, George Soros on marketwatch recently announced plans to donate $15 million to the new super PAC, Immigrant Voters Win, according to Fox New Latino. The PAC has raised a total of $10 million since December and is ready to start its operations in May. The purpose of the campaign is to fund organizations in Nevada, California and Florida. These states have large Latino communities on so the hope is that these organizations will encourage a large Latino turnout at the polls in the fall.

Soros, one of the world’s biggest philanthropists on, has given away a large percentage of his fortune to fight for democracy, freedom, social justice, human rights and social responsibility. Soros is a Hungarian-American investor and philanthropist. George Soros philanthropic organization, the Open Society Foundations, supports human rights in more than 100 countries. The organization is a network of foundations that works to build fair and tolerant communities.

Soros has been supporting democratic causes since the late 1970s through business development and educational means. In 1979, Soros provided scholarships to black South Africans under apartheid. In the 1980s, he worked towards undermining communism by supporting cultural exchanges with the West and providing Xerox machines to help copy banned textbooks.

Soros created Central European University after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The school focused on promoting critical thinking. Since then, Soros has expanded his philanthropy to the Africa, Asia and the United States. Open Society Foundations have supported legal aid and lawyers in representing a number of individuals who were unlawfully being imprisoned, without any legal representation, for years upon years. In addition to the above causes, the foundations also gave money to programs that provided aid to victims of natural disaster.
