Some people call Donald Trump the “Twitter-in-Chief.” Donald likes to send an endless barrage of short social messages. The fact that Trump won the election is not music to anyone’s ears that voted for Clinton. The amount of backlash from the 2016 election is unprecedented. Millions of voters are still in shock, and they don’t know what to do about it. But there is one man that is not pulling back, and just accepting Trump as the most powerful leader in the Western World. His name is George Soros.
George Soros is the billionaire humanitarian that spent more than ten million to get Hillary Clinton and other Democrats elected. Some people say Soros spent more than $14 million on the election, and he is not done giving. Ever since Trump won, there has been a surge in hate crimes. The Southern Poverty Law Center recorded more than 800 hate crimes since the beginning of November, and that number doesn’t include online harassment. The eighty-six-year-old Soros is a Holocaust survivor, so hate crimes are something he has a hard time accepting. George Soros decided that he would put up more than $10 million through his Open Society Foundation to track hate crimes. The federal system is weak when it comes to tracking hate crimes, so the Open Society Foundation will pick up the federal slack, according to Amardeep Singh. Singh is the program officer for the National Security, and Human Rights Campaign at the Open Society Foundation.
Hate crimes aren’t the only issue that George Soros is addressing when it comes to Trump’s win. The Democratic Alliance Donor Club recently had a conference in Washington to discuss the Trump situation. Soros is the founder of that alliance. The Democratic Alliance wants to keep Trump honest during his first 100 days in office, and every day after that. In other words, George Soros and other Democratic heavy hitters will make sure that Trump doesn’t make a mockery out of the presidency. That seems to be a tall order at the moment, but Soros is used to challenges.
The George Soros story should be a movie, and probably will be when he passes on. George fled Hungary during the Nazi occupation. He went to London, and he was able to enroll in the London School of Economics in 1947. He earned two degrees from that institution. He started to work in the investment industry, but a friend told him about an investment job in New York. Soros got the job, moved to New York, and started his illustrious investment career. Over the last 60 years, George Soros has been able to build a personal fortune. He is one of the wealthiest people on the planet. But he is not afraid to give his money away to help promote Democracy and freedom.
Trump may have won the election, but he is in the battle of his life with people like George Soros. Soros doesn’t lose often, and when he does, he makes adjustments. Trump has no idea what the Soros adjustments will be, but he will know soon.
