George Soros met with members of the Libre Foundation to discuss how to keep Republican front-runner Donald Trump from winning the presidential race. Leaders of the foundation and the politically involved Democratic billionaire believe that bringing out more Latino voters is the best way to stop Trump’s political juggernaut. The Republican candidate has expressed support for building a wall along the United States-Mexico border and forcing the developing country to pay for the wall’s construction. Mexican immigrants, as well as many other Hispanics oppose this plan. The Libre Foundation plans to use Soros’s $15 million donation to help start a campaign to drive voter turnout.
Hispanics are not the only minority that has been targeted by the Trump campaign. In previous campaign speeches, the former reality television star suggested forcing Muslims to wear special IDs, and he has suggested placing a temporary ban on Islamic immigration. The candidate’s feud with Fox News personality Megan Kelly led many women’s groups to turn against him, although it is not certain that their members are turning towards Clinton.

As the primary season winds down, Soros believes that Hillary Clinton has the best chance of defeating Trump, even though it is not certain that the former United States Secretary of State will win the popular vote.. He gave several million dollars to the campaign earlier this year hoping he could avert a financial crisis. Soros’s decision to influence this year’s political election is a marked change from the past eight years George Soros decided to remain out of politics after failing to influence the 2004 election. Despite Soros donating millions of dollars on the Kerry campaign, George W. Bush won a second term.
The Libre foundation’s campaign will not start until the primary season ends, which should be later in May. Kasich and Cruz dropped out of the race recently, leaving only Donald Trump remaining. Pundits still believe that the Republican nomination may be contested at the convention this year.
