Right Wing Comcerns Prompt a Return to U.S. Politics for George Soros

The well-known Wall Street hedge fund investor George Soros has been at the center of U.S. politics throughout the 2016 Presidential election campaign, but despite claims to the contrary Soros has not played a key role in the Democratic Party of the U.S. for two election cycles prior to 2016. The idea that George Soros has been a major player in U.S. politics is based on his decision to become involved in the 2004 election cycle when he backed the candidacy of John Kerry in his failed bid to overcome the incumbent President George W. Bush, according to Politico; the $27 million in funding provided by Soros for Kerry’s Presidential campaign remains his personal record for campaign giving that was almost matched by the $25 million in funds the Hungarian born hedge fund expert provided for Hillary Clinton and her Super PAC’s in 2016.

There are a number of reasons why George Soros has made his return to political life in the U.S. in 2016 and now in 2017, particularly the fear of the rise of the right wing groups who have been leading the candidacy of now President Donald Trump. During the campaign for the 2016 Presidency, George Soros went as far as stating both Donald Trump and fellow Republican candidate Ted Cruz were doing the work of ISIS for them in recruiting terms because of the rhetoric they were using on the campaign trail. Soros also has also played a key role in helping the Democratic Party return to a position of growing confidence during 2017 as he has pledged to aid the group with a large amount of support provided for grassroots candidates during the 2018 midterm elections for Congress.
