Alex Soros, the son of George Soros, has assumed control of his father's charitable and political endeavors

A representative for the Open Society Foundations revealed that George Soros, a famous billionaire and contributor to liberal political causes, has appointed his 37-year-old son Alexander Soros to head the organization.

During an interview that took place on Sunday with the Wall Street Journal, Alexander Soros said that he will serve as chair of the Open Society Foundations, which is Soros' primary charitable organization, according to a report by CNN.

Alexander Soros was appointed chairman of the foundation's board of directors in December, despite the fact that he had been designated as the foundation's deputy chair for the preceding months.

Soros, better known by his nickname Alex, disclosed to the Journal that he considers himself "more political" than his father and that he anticipates the foundation's involvement in a variety of new issues, most notably those pertaining to voting rights and abortion rights.

He has lately advocated for some of the topics that are important to the family by meeting with officials of the Biden Administration, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and certain leaders of state, including Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Forbes estimates that George Soros, who is 92 years old, has a personal net worth of $6.7 billion, although the value of his foundations much exceeds that figure.

According to the website for his charity, he has contributed 32 billion dollars to it. In 1979, the organization was established with the declared mission of working toward the promotion of justice, democratic government, and human rights all over the world. Since its inception, it has distributed awards totaling $19 billion.

According to Open Secrets, a website that keeps tabs on political donations and expenditures, his political action committee, which is called Democracy PAC, contributed a total of $81 million in political donations during the 2019-2020 election season.

George Soros amassed his wealth through his management of hedge funds. He is frequently attacked by conservatives, and antisemitic conspiracy theories are frequently used to justify such assaults.

Fox News reports that the new leader of the Soros empire has visited the White House at least 17 times since 2021. The publication reported that three visits took place between February 8 and February 10.

Alex Soros met with Jon Finer, principal deputy national security adviser; Jordan Finkelstein, special assistant to the president and chief of staff for senior Biden adviser Anita Dunn; and Mariana Adame, adviser to the president's counselor, according to the visitor logs.

“Alexander Soros is poised to lead his family’s multibillion-dollar political and philanthropic network,” said Scott Walter, president of Capital Research Center, according to the Washington Examiner.

“Like his father, he cozies up to White House and congressional leaders willing to do the family’s bidding on such issues as crime, immigration, election policy, and more, as the Soroses exploit every type of giving: money to parties, independent expenditure groups, and so-called ‘charities,’” he said

“All throughout the White House, there is a Soros hold somewhere, and his son is his father’s new ambassador,” Palumbo said.
