Billionaire George Soros has been heavily invested in various elections in the United States and has been a major contributor to the democratic party. This election cycle was no different, as he put up around twenty five million dollars to try to help get the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton into the white house. This would not be the first time that he has put up a huge amount of money, only to see the candidate he was supporting to lose out. The same scenario unfolded in the year 2004, where George Soros again put up a huge amount of money, in the same ball park of twenty five million dollars, in order to prevent George W. Bush from getting into office.

George Soros is involved in a huge amount of social projects and was backing Hillary Clinton, doing pretty much everything he could to get her into office. A few major things that he invested in was the right for illegal immigrants to vote. The idea that illegal immigrants should be able to vote is something that has been heavily debated, and at the current time, illegal immigrants do not have the right or the ability to place a vote in the United States, based on the fact that they are not a current citizen. However, George Soros invested quite a bit of money to increase the likelihood that immigrants who were living in the United States illegally would be able to cast a vote. While it has come out in the media that many illegal immigrants did in fact cast a vote, most of whom voted for Hillary Clinton, the presidency ended up going to the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.
One of the biggest reasons that Soros was pushing for illegal immigrants to vote was the fact that Donald Trump has made bold statements about deporting illegal immigrants who are living in the United States. The fact that there is a truthful reality of mass deportation in the coming future, illegal immigrants were almost certain to vote for Hillary Clinton. However, things did not turn out the way that George Soros or Hillary Clinton expected, as well as the rest of the mainstream media, as there has been a massive wave of shock around the country. The reaction from George Soros has been one of disbelief and almost a bit of panic, as he has been doing what he can to resist the effect that Donald Trump will have on the nation. Rather than preventing Trump from getting into office, the goal of George Soros has shifted to doing what he can to gear up his donors to resist major changes in the future, as well as to focus on elections in 2017 and 2018. There was massive speculation in the media that Hillary Clinton would end up taking the election and thus, becoming the forty fifth president of the United States, but things took a big turn and Donald Trump won the presidency, which has created a bit of hysteria from Soros and the left in general.
