With more than 4,095 legal actions during the past three decades, Donald Trump is no stranger to the courtroom. Now he’s going up against his biggest adversary yet: George Soros.
Eighty-six-year-old Soros, billionaire leftist, is a Hungarian-American investor, business magnate, philanthropist and one of the most successful investors in the world. He’s been dubbed “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England.”
Soros has a steady track record for banking leftist agendas. He started the Open Society Institute in 1993 and has given more than $7 billion. He funded ACORN, Apollo Alliance, Tides Foundation, Huffington Post, People for the American Way, Planned Parenthood, and the National Organization for Women. Soros has also backed Media Matters for America, a progressive media watchdog group, and has been a major funder of MoveOn.org, a progressive advocacy group and political action committee that raises millions for liberals.
Soros has not kept his contempt of Trump quiet.
Soros claimed in a CNBC article, “I have described [Trump] as an impostor and a con man and a would-be dictator. But he’s only a would-be dictator because I’m confident that the Constitution and the institutions of the United States are strong enough. … He would be a dictator if he could get away with it, but he won’t be able to.”
Now he, along with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, as well as Democratic attorneys general in Virginia and Massachusetts have released a joint statement condemning an “unconstitutional, un-American and unlawful the executive order” on the travel ban.
They’re fighting in court.
Soros isn’t the only one bankrolling the operation.
Democrats are also raising money.
The Democratic Attorneys General Association posted on Facebook, “Stand with Attorney General Bob Ferguson and all Democratic State Attorneys General fighting for what’s right!” It added, “Chip in to support Democratic AGs fighting for progressive rights and freedoms.”
American Civil Liberties Union has received $35.5 million from the Open Society Institute.
Soros also gave $4.6 million to the National Immigration Law Center, which has been involved in litigation; and $621,000 to the Urban Justice Center, which has an appendage known as the International Refugee Assistance Project.
