Conservatives led by President Trump are bracing themselves for a tough fight with the relentless lobbyist armed with billions of dollars. Soros is said to be more determined than ever to continue funding pro-democratic causes. A while back, the tea party leaders thought they had finally gotten rid of the Billionaire Hungarian-American stocks and equities investor.

Dick Devos has continuously defended his foundation and has shown its credibility. John Truscott, the family spokesman, released a report that clearly reflected the Devos’ attempt to become more transparent about their donations. Dick himself said that his foundation’s giving met the criteria of charitable companies. This included the funding of the family founded charter school, advocacy group, located in Michigan.
