When George Soros Dies, Who Will Run His Money, and for What Purposes?
Speculation abounds. George Soros turned 86 last August, and the clock is ticking. He lost $1 billion betting against Trump in November, but still has $25 billion left. When he meets his Maker (likely for the first time), who will drive the billionaire’s Wells Fargo wagon?
Out of his five kids, two are heirs apparent: Alexander, age 31, and his older brother Jonathan, age 46. Both are major contributors to Democrat groups, campaigns, and programs, as well as a bevy of far-left politicians. Although Jonathan is a major donor to various left-wing groups (Friends of Democracy PAC now merged into Every Voice, MoveOn.org, the New York Leadership for Accountable Government, and Planned Parenthood) and politicians (Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, among others), Jonathan is a piker compared to his younger brother.
According to Media Research Center’s Dan Gainer, Alexander has the inside track to running daddy’s money when he passes:
As George Soros ages, there has been speculation about who will assume his role in funding the liberal movement. With the expanded giving of both Alexander and Jonathan Soros, it’s possible that both of them will play key roles [in] supporting the left for decades to come….
Alex, in particular, has championed standard left-wing “progressive causes” such as climate change and social justice … he totally misread the 2016 election … but he has more than enough money to support numerous candidates and organizations [in the future].
In 2012, Alexander gave just $400,000 to Democrats, but in 2016 he amped his giving up ten-fold, to $4.5 million. Between August and November, he wrote four checks totaling $3.5 million to Senator Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC, with the balance going to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee Services Corporation, and other left-wing groups and political campaigns.
