George Soros Supported Hillary Clinton for President
From the beginning, George Soros had supported Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. Hillary Clinton and George Soros have had a close relationship for more than 20 years. Last December, George Soros donated six million dollars to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. A few months before December 2015, George Soros had also donated two million dollars previously. The big contribution lead to the result of a company to raise 25 million more dollars for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. When Hillary Clinton was running for office back in 2008, George Soros supported Barack Obama, a decision that he deeply regrets.
George Soros hasn’t been supportive of Donald Trump from the beginning along with Ted Cruz. The billionaire man said back in January of this year that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were “doing the work of ISIS” therefore stating that he felt Donald Trump wouldn’t be a good fit for President.
Previous Election Involvement
George Soros has supported Presidential candidates in previous elections. Back in 2004, the billionaire investor spent over twenty million dollars trying to prevent George W. Bush from getting elected into office in which George Soros was unsuccessful. The investor gains billions of dollars through investing in the stock market and near election time, he spends more time investing so that he can donate money to presidential campaigns.
Back in September of this year, George Soros donated hundreds of millions of dollars to businesses in hopes of the businesses investing in the stock market. George Soros felt like the United States needed a reliable President to help the stock market. This is one of the reasons that George Soros supported Hillary Clinton for President. George Soros thought that Hillary Clinton would help boost the stock market as well as fighting off ISIS.

Hopes of Defeating Sheriff Joe Arpaio
George Soros has been heavily involved in politics ever since the election process began and he continues to do so. Back in November, just a few days before the elections, the billionaire donated two million dollars in hopes of defeating Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona. George Soros has spent millions of dollars this year trying to defeat certain candidates in the elections. George Soros is one of the biggest Democratic donors in the United States.
The Maricopa County Sheriff was charged a few months ago with contempt of court, a charge that federal prosecutors pursued against him. The charge stems from an incident in which federal prosecutors claim that Joe Arpaio is discriminating against illegal immigrants. Along with George Soros, many other Democratic donors have donated money to prevent the sheriff from getting re-elected into office.
Response to Donald Trump’s Presidential Victory
George Soros is not satisfied with the Presidential election results. After the billionaire donated millions of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election. Even though he has given millions to campaigns, he is committed to fighting Donald Trump’s presidency.
