Donald Trump has often used the excuse of how he used millions of dollars in his own money to fight his way into the Oval Office. Now, another billionaire, the New Yorker George Soros has started using his own millions to stop Trump from taking office. George Soros called on the entire Latino community to take part in that coordinated effort of teamwork.

According to the New York Times, George Soros and other donors launched a co-effort $15 million campaign that would bring about the greatest Latino immigrant participation in the United States polls. The campaign has been funded in states like Colorado, Florida and Nevada, which have some of the largest Asian and Latino communities. They hope this will influence the turnout in the November primaries.

Last year, Donald Trump shot to the front of the Republican president candidates when he proposed a hard line on the policies of immigration. George Soros, ranked as the 22nd richest man in the world, has started contributing his own money to influence the campaign. In fact, Soros pledged $5 million to help stop Trump. Soros is a Hungarian-born, self-made billionaire who made his money through a hedge fund. The people who are involved in this coordinated effort could see the largest democratic voter turnout in years. The campaign specifically targets Latinos, and their goal is to create a minimum of more than 400,000 new voters for the general election that takes place in November.

George Soros – The New York Times

Cristobal Alex, the president of the Latino Victory Project, said that this takes the gloves off. He says that from day one Trump attacked the Latino people calling them rapists and thieves. With the building of a giant wall, it could break apart families and the country sits on the precipice of disaster. Most political experts agree that Trump has taken the presidential race and has made it into a political campaign like no other in recent history. To be sure, few conservatives are sitting idly by waiting for George Soros to begin his Latino outreach. Soros spoke with the New York Times in an email about how he had been rattled by the xenophobic views of the Republican party, and he was upset that Trump wanted to ban Muslim refugees from coming into the United States.

For a long time, Soros has had a lengthy history of supporting liberal political movements, and the pockets do not get much deeper than his. Soros said in the email with the New York Times that the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policy that the Republican primary supports has proven harmful to our national interests and to our democracy. 

Soros has been one of the few wealthy liberals who has who has financed these campaigns. A lot of Latinos have said that there is less financial support from the affluent liberals, which could make all the difference. Alex told the times that one of the reasons they have had a lower turnout is because there is a historical level of under investing in their community.

According to, with the food shortage in Venezuela, there is a demand to censure the food minister. This comes at a time in the state where it seems like nothing is going the way residents like Ms. Norka Luque desire. There is an electricity shortage, which has resulted in shorter work weeks and restrictions on how much power is used during the day. It’s nothing to see long lines waiting on food while people are out of work. Rodolfo Marco Torres didn’t show up for a congressional hearing, which is why lawmakers want his duties suspended. There is no confidence in the way that the man runs the food industry, and it is harming the people who live in the state. At the same time, officials have seen petitions that want Nicolas Maduro to leave office as well. Perhaps if both men are gone, then the state could be in a position to actually support the people who live there.
