The political world has always been the domain of billionaire hedge fund manager George Soros who is well known for his ability to understand and interpret the events taking place in the world and make sense of them in an understanding and effective way. George Soros was well known on Wall Street for his ability to invest in many different markets after understanding the political events in different areas before gambling on the currency markets; the best example of the political acumen of the Hungarian born U.S. citizen is reported by Forbes to be his gamble on the devaluation of the British Pound that made the founder of the Soros Fund Management brand an estimated $1 billion.

In 2015, the work of George Soros once again returned to the U.S. political arena where the work of the hedge fund manager became the election of the next U.S. President; despite claims from the conservative media, George Soros has rarely played a key role in the Presidential election cycles of the 21st century apart from times when he feels the freedom of the people of the U.S. are at stake. George Soros had become a major political figure in the U.S. in 2004 when he provided around $27 million in donations in a bid to remove incumbent President George W. Bush from office, according to Politico. Soros had ideological differences with Democratic President Barrack Obama during the 2008 and 2012 election cycles that forced him to largely sit out these election cycles as Soros was not willing to simply back the left leaning candidates regardless of their beliefs and policies. Aides for the Clinton campaign have explained over recent years that Soros has offered his view that he made the wrong choice in 2008 by backing Obama over Clinton as the former Secretary of State is now viewed as a better option for President by George Soros.

Soros has enjoyed a long and successful philanthropic career fighting the forces of the right wing across the planet and believes the rise of Donald Trump and what has become known as the alt right are a major cause for he and other major donors to return to the Democratic fold and add their financial weight to the issues faced by the people of the U.S. George Soros is one of the leading figures in the Democratic Party and is often seen as a leading beacon for other liberal donors seeking to establish the Democrats as a party of success in the 21st century.
