George Soros is a wealthy billionaire who relocated to the United States from London. He is a hedge fund manager and founder of the famous company known as Soros Foundation. He is also a firm supporter of a free society, and that’s what motivated him to start the popular Open Society, an organization that has spread in over one hundred countries. The foundation was formed when he acquired enough money to fund people in the society.
Their first activity was funding black student’s education in South Africa during the apartheid system. The organization has also been providing lawyers to prisoners in different places in the world, and this way, he helped get justice for people in the world. Due to the amount of independence he has acquired over the years, George Soros has become an influential person in the United States and other countries all over the world. He funds politics, criticizes governments and other important people in power, and gives his opinion in the finance sector.
Last year, the billionaire gave six million dollars to support Hillary Clinton in her efforts to become the next president of the United States. The donation was issued to PAC, Hillary’s supporters.
