There were a huge amount of polls that came out, literally from every angle that showed that Hillary Clinton would not only win the presidency and head to the white house in 2017, but that she would win in a major landslide. Nearly every single media outlet was on the same page and there were even major parties that were set to take place as Hillary won on November 8th, but this was not the outcome that was to be. Donald Trump shocked the world and won the presidency, which has left people like George Soros in a confusing position. There is no doubt that he had not anticipated this, as he had put so much money into funding the election, while increasing the chance that illegal immigrants would vote and focusing on other measures that would help Hillary Clinton out.

The expectation that Hillary Clinton would get into office and the shocking results of a Donald Trump presidency for the next four years has left Soros in a precarious position, but anyone that knows what he is about and what he has done over his career knows that he is going to get right back on the attack. Instead of preventing Trump from getting into the white house, George Soros is now formulating a plan to stop the effects that Trump is going to have on the nation. This means that Soros and his team are going to do whatever they can to stop the changes that Trump has promised to make in the United States. This comes down to social issues in large part, as social issues in the United States is something that Soros is heavily involved in. It seems that the strategy that Soros has adopted is one that is more on the defensive side, rather than the strong offensive stance that he and the Democratic party has had over the last eighteen months or so.
While it is too late to stop a Donald Trump presidency, in the eyes of George Soros and the rest of the investors that paid heavily into the Hillary Clinton campaign, Soros thinks there are still things that can be done to lessen the blow. One thing that George Soros is also trying to prevent, is the absolute dismantling of the Obama administration. Trump has vowed to repeal and remove Obama care, change immigration policy, stop illegals from entering the country, as well as a huge amount of other things that are in direct opposition to what Obama had in mind, as well as the beliefs that George Soros holds. There is no question that there is going to be a battle over these issues in the upcoming years, but Donald Trump holds the key and is in the best position to make changes as he now sees fit.
