The famous real estate billionaire, Donald Trump, has knocked out his Republican opponents and there seems no reason why he shouldn’t get on the GOP Presidential ticket during this year’s presidential elections.
The truth is, Trump has got many opponents in addition to Hillary Clinton (whom he labeled “a crooked Hillary”). Already, $75 million was thrown into anti-Trump campaigns. But, he prevailed.
Now, Trump got a formidable opponent- an another billionaire, one that’s even richer than he is. George Soros, the financial markets speculator on nybooks, has thrown $5 million into an overall $15-million anti-Trump PAC. Soros is seeking to mobilize immigrants, especially Latinos, to the polls. Trump is known for threatening to deport illegal immigrants and build a wall with Mexico to stop more illegals from coming.
Of course, only United States citizens can vote in elections, but this move hopes to play on legal immigrants’ sentiments and family ties to block Trump. Some states will be highly contested, so getting as many Democratic voters to show up at the polls this November may make a difference.

Based on the electoral map, Mrs. Clinton is likely to win, but Mr. Trump is confident that he can defeat her. After all, he knocked out such recognized politicians as Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz.
Trump’s weaknesses are his controversial statements and no previous experience in holding a political office. But, George Soros has plenty of business experience, and the Americans now seem to care the most about the economy.
On the other side, Hillary Clinton has got political experience but is known to accept money from questionable sources such as Qatari donors. No wonder Trump calls her crooked.
George Soros will surely support the more liberal candidate, which is Hillary Clinton. In fact, he’s been involved in liberal causes for years. It even came to the point where his foundations were kicked out of Russia. The Russians claimed he’s a threat to national security. He also was criticized by some European leaders, such as Victor Orban, for his encouragement of massive Middle Eastern migration to Europe.
With $25 billion under his name, 86-year-old Soros surely isn’t a conservative. He will fight against Trump.
