Alexander Soros, son of billionaire liberal donor George Soros, has reportedly made at least 14 visits to the White House since October 2021. These visits have raised concerns among conservatives, who have criticized the Soros family’s influence on US politics.
Soros, who serves as chair of the Open Society Foundations, has met with several top officials in the Biden administration, including Mariana Adame, advisor to the counselor to the president, and Deputy National Security Advisor Jonathan Finer. He has also met with Ron Klain’s assistant, Nina Srivastava, who served on Biden’s presidential campaign.
The visits by Soros to the White House have alarmed some conservatives who claim that the Soros family has done “incalculable damage to our country.”
Heritage Foundation Oversight Project director Mike Howell has stated that “the death and destruction of their policies are evident at our borders and in our crime-infested cities,” and that “the left is addicted to their money, and they don’t even bother hiding it anymore.”
The visits have also raised concerns about the influence of wealthy donors in US politics and whether such influence undermines democratic institutions.
However, supporters of the Soros family argue that they have a right to participate in the political process like any other citizen. They point out that the Open Society Foundations have supported many worthwhile causes, including civil rights, public health, and environmental protection. They also argue that the Soros family has been the target of unfounded conspiracy theories and attacks from the right.
