The U.S. political landscape is now filled with many of the biggest political financial donors in the world who have often been accused of having far too much political influence in the 21st century. Although he may no longer be the largest political donor on the left of the U.S. political spectrum, George Soros remains as influential as ever before for Democrat’s looking to win elections at national, state, and local levels, according to Politico. Soros has returned to the political landscape of the U.S. in 2016 after missing much of the previous two Presidential election campaigns due to his unhappiness with the forwarding of the liberal agenda of President Barrack Obama; Soros is well known for his leftist views that include the legalization of illegal drugs and the opening of borders to mass immigration in the fashion of the European Union.
During the buildup to the 2016 Presidential election campaign George Soros became one of the most outspoken critics of now President Donald Trump and accused him of using right wing rhetoric to drive up hatred against minority groups across the U.S. and wider world. In his role as one of the patriarchs of the Democratic Party, George Soros played a key role in the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the first female candidate for President from one of the two main U.S. political parties; Soros and Clinton have shared a political friendship that has expanded over 25 years to allow the two to share an open door policy in the buildup to the 2016 election to allow Soros access to key policy points developed by the Clinton campaign. In developing the key points of political policy with Clinton, George Soros once again entered U.S. politics at a high level and sought to create a better future for global citizens through the advancement of a series of left wing policies.

Among the aspects of the return of George Soros that have been so shocking for those who know the Hungarian born founder of Soros Fund Management is that he withdrew from political donating after feeling the U.S. funding laws were “odious”. After 2004, Soros had suggested he would no longer provide major political funding for political parties or candidates; however, Soros has spent around $25 million in the 2016 election campaign season as he sought to create a higher level of support for Hillary Clinton. Soros set out to back a number of Super PAC’s and support groups for minority groups supporting Clinton, including a number of those concerned with encouraging minority group voters to take part in the voting process during the 2016 election season as the drive for more votes for the Clinton campaign grew as the election drew closer.
