Vice President Kamala Harris hosted a gathering at her private residence that included Alex Soros, the heir to George Soros’s fortune, according to White House visitor logs from May 2023. This event shed light on the intersection of political power and major donors within the Democratic Party.
The visitor logs revealed that Alex Soros, along with supermodel Savannah Huitema and seven other prominent Democratic donors, attended an event at Harris’s private residence listed as “1st Floor VPR” on May 31, 2023. The meeting extended into the evening, with the guests arriving at 4 p.m. and departing at midnight.
Alex Soros shared a photo of himself with Vice President Harris on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) on June 6, where he expressed his pleasure at meeting the vice president. Prior to the release of these visitor logs, details of this meeting were unknown.
This gathering marked the 21st recorded instance of Alex Soros meeting with a member of President Biden’s administration, as indicated by analysis conducted by the Washington Free Beacon.
The meeting between Soros and Vice President Harris drew attention from conservative media figures and lawmakers. Some critics raised concerns about the influence of the Soros family in Democratic politics, with Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee stating that it was “laughable” to deny their influence. Others questioned the extent of the Soros family’s involvement in Democratic politics.
Alex Soros is known for his active engagement with Democratic lawmakers, often sharing his interactions with them on social media platforms. His Instagram account features numerous photos with prominent Democrats in the House and Senate from 2018 to 2022.
This meeting took place shortly before Alex Soros publicly announced that he would be taking control of the Open Society Foundations, his father’s philanthropic organization. Alex Soros is regarded as holding even more left-leaning views than his father, George Soros.
The gathering at Harris’s residence highlights the complex and controversial relationships that exist between major donors, political figures, and philanthropic organizations, particularly within the Democratic Party. It underscores the ongoing debate about the role of money and influence in American politics.
