Geroge Soros is a renowned activist and he frequently donates to Democratic candidates. Reportedly, he has donated over $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations in order to promote democracy and human rights around the world. Apparently, his activism has put him in the crosshair of conservative and pro-right-wing groups.
George Soros gave huge political donations to John Kerry during his unsuccessful bid to deny George W Bush a second term as the US President. Soros publicly promoted Barack Obama’s candidacy in 2008 and reportedly, donated more than $25 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016.
