A good way to look at what kind of president a person will be is to look at who is funding them.
Topping Hillary’s list is the Saban Capital Group. The “private investment firm,” has given the Clinton campaign over $10 million in just this year alone. Founded by Hami Saba, a Jewish Egyptian national, he has said his greatest concern is to protect Israel. He is also part owner of Univision, who is a strong supporter of Hillary Clinton. Here is how the New Yorker described his relation with the Clintons:
By far his most important relationship is with Bill and Hillary Clinton. In 2002, Saban donated five million dollars to Bill Clinton’s Presidential library, and he has given more than five million dollars to the Clinton Foundation. In February, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered a major policy address at the U.S.-Islamic World Forum in Doha, co-sponsored by the Saban Center. And last November Bill Clinton was a featured speaker at the Saban Forum, an annual conference attended by many high-level Israeli and U.S. government officials, which was held in Jerusalem. Ynon Kreiz, an Israeli who was the chairman and chief executive of a Saban company and Saban’s closest associate for many years, attended the conference, and when I commented that his former boss appeared to be positively smitten with Bill Clinton, Kreiz replied, grinning broadly, “No! No! I remember once Haim was talking to me on the phone, and he said in Hebrew, without changing his tone so Clinton would have no idea he was speaking about him, ‘The President of the United States, wearing his boxers, is coming down the stairs, and I am going to have to stop talking and go have breakfast with him.’”
A close second on the list is Renaissance Technologies, another hedge fund. They gave $9.5 million to Hillary’s campaign this year. Funder James Simons has given over $30 million to Democrats and their campaigns since 2006.
third on the list is Pritzker Group, which is a venture capital firm that owns Hyatt Hotels. They’ve given $7.9 million to Hillary.
Of course, George Soros has dumped $7 million into the campaign.
As you’d expect, leftist billionaires are hedge funds dominate Hillary’s top donors. But there are some interesting – ones too.
For example, the “NewsWeb Corporation” is a printer of ethnic and alternative newspapers. They seem committed to left-wing causes and their publications and media outlets reflect that.
Another interesting one is the “Center for Middle East Peace.” they actively support a “two-state” solution and are huge backers of liberal national security issues.
Tons of labor unions are part of the list as well. The Plumbers and Pipefittes union gave #3 million, for example. The Carpenters Union gave $2.5 million, and the Laborers union gave $3 million. Steven Spielberg’s Dreamworks studios gave $2 million.
On the other hand, Donald Trump’s top contributor has given a fraction of what Hillary’s contributors have.
The John Powers Middleton Companies gave $150,000 to Trump this year. Middleton is a TV producer who co-produced The Lego Movie.
There isn’t much left on the list.
There’s a financial group that gave $50,000, a realty company. The AON Corporation. All told, Trump has received nothing from Political Action Committees and has self-funded over half of his campaign.
Love him or hate him, he answers to no one, but himself and the American people.
On the other hand, it is clear who Hillary Clinton answers to.
