The work of George Soros in terms of political giving has recently reached major levels once again after the man whose gamble on the British currency being devalued in 1992 is estimated to have made him around $1 billion in a single day decided the battle against right wing groups had reached an important moment for the U.S. and the world.

As early as 2015, Politico reports George Soros had made the decision to become a major part of the U.S. political landscape once again as he felt the only way to fight right wing influence around the world was to secure The White House for the left leaning Democratic Party. The $25 million given to the campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton has been a major increase on the work completed by Soros in the past, which has seen a slowed down level of support for U.S. based political groups as Soros felt unsure about the level of influence he and other wealthy donors were able to obtain over the nation as a whole. Democrat’s now look to George Soros to inspire his fellow donors to come out and provide support for left leaning candidates at all levels of politics, such as Haim Saban and Fred Eychaner who were inspired by the arrival of the well Known political donor in the middle of the 2016 election battle to provide more than $11 million each for Democrat causes.
