George Soros on politifact has always taken a stand for the causes that are important to him. Indeed, Soros has never taken the past of least resistance when it comes to standing up for democratic principles or human rights. Soros has an interesting background in coming to appreciate the importance of human rights and fighting fiercely to protect them from corrupt or authoritarian regimes on Soros was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930. He survived the Nazi invasion of Hungary and fled to England, where he studied at the London School of Economics. It was during his education in London when George Soros began to appreciate the importance of an open society and the free flourishing of ideas without restrictions from a government. After graduating, Soros moved to New York City, where he began a very successful career in finance and investing and would eventually establish Soros Fund Management.

Since the 1970s, well before George Soros became the well known and respected businessman that he is today, Soros has been fighting for the rights of the underprivileged and marginalized members of societies through the Open Society Foundations, which he continues to lead today. In addition to his financial contributions and vocal support of humanitarian causes, George Soros on latino.foxnews has also written over a dozen books on a wide range of topics from the global financial crises to the war on terrorism. As of 2016, Soros’ individual net worth has exceeded an estimated $24.9 billion, according to “The World’s Billionaires,” which is published by Forbes. Soros definitely realizes that he has opportunities to change the world for the better with the professional and financial success on he has made possible for himself over the past several decades. To that end, he has paved the way for countless other young professionals who seek his guidance and experience in creating similar successes for themselves and truly launching their finance careers. Indeed, Soros was responsible for training Jim Rogers, a fellow hedge fund manager who credits his success to Soros’ training and mentoring over the years.

Outside of humanitarian causes and professional success, Soros has been actively involved in supporting various progressive political causes, most recently to include supporting a PAC in the hopes of encouraging Latino voters to participate in the U.S. presidential election this November. Soros just made a $5 million donation to the PAC, which he says is a step in the right direction to make sure that Latino voices are heard this election season, in response to the hateful anti-immigrant rhetoric of GOP front runner Donald Trump. In light of Soros’ own history with immigration and opposing Nazi rule in Hungary, it should come as no surprise that Soros is willing to throw his financial support behind a cause seeking to support marginalized immigrants in the U.S. Soros has been very vocal in opposing what he refers to as shameful rhetoric from the Trump campaign in hoping to unite the country around shared values of democracy and freedom, rather than capitalizing on anger and frustration of the American public.
