George Soros’ Response to the Election Results
George Soros appeared extremely discontented with the 2016 United States Presidential Election results on Politico. Soros made an appearance at this meeting with a serious and focused outlook that clearly portrayed his true feelings against the 2016 poll results. When conversations were carried out with George Soros, he appeared to feel extremely triggered by the election event as it invoked negative emotions regarding his past to emerge out. His devastating personal experience of the Soviet Communism and Holocaust at an early age played back in his memory as he expressed his concern with where the American nation might be heading with Trump in power.

George Soros was born in Hungary and raised within the gloomy and fearful ambiance of Communism and Nazism. With the fear of the United States turning into a similar horrifying nation according to Soros under the Trump presidency on project-syndicate.org, he wanted to devote his time, energy and resources to defend those open societies that might soon be threatened by the United States itself in a similar manner. LaMarche told Politico of Soros’ strong belief in this concern and how he strongly believes Trump will turn his fears into reality pretty soon. LaMarche is a loyal employee who had worked under Soros’s Open Society foundations for years. Finally, LaMarche also pointed out how Soros and his ancestors were well aware of the treatment they had received from people with xenophobia and how the history had repeated itself again after the Brexit, so Soros’ worries are quite valid.

The Success of Charles Koch

Charles Koch and his brother David Koch are one of the most influential figures in both the business world as well as in the political world. Charles and David Koch are proud owners of Koch Industries which is an oil refining company that has allowed them to spread their economic influence that supports the free market. The Koch brothers’ success has enabled them to become influential individuals within the political world which has been demonstrated through the campaign funding for the 2012 and 2016 presidential election.

The Koch brothers have labeled themselves as “classic liberals”. Although they believe that government intervention and government created infrastructure is beneficial, they are also strong believers in the free market. Their support for the free market is most noted from the 2012 election where they funded the Mitt Romney campaign with over $400 million that they raised through investors. Although Mitt Romney lost the election, the Koch brothers are now ready to fund a candidate for the 2016 upcoming presidential election.

The only road block that the Koch brothers have acknowledged for the 2016 election is Republican candidate, Donald Trump. The Koch brothers have made their disagreements against Donald Trump publicly known especially when it comes to his policies on taxes, trade, as well as foreign policy. The Koch brothers believe that Donald Trump lacks the skill of diplomatic and would act more so as a bully rather than a leader. The Koch brothers are against Donald Trump as they believe he goes against the ideology of universal freedom and rights for all.

Their goal is to discredit Mr. Trump by demonstrating to the public that he is not a leader and he is wrong for the United States of America. In addition to this, the Koch brothers are also attacking his shady business deals.

Charles Koch, in a recent interview, stated that he has become involved in politics for two reasons. The first reason is to expand the family business and influence. The second reason is to expand the desire for a free market. It is Charles Koch’s belief that a free market without government intervention would be beneficial to all as the economy cannot be managed because it is spontaneous. Charles Koch has demonstrated his belief in the free market through his many donations to free market institutions.
