George Soros Pledges $10 Million to Fight Hate Crimes – The New York Times

Soros doesn’t intend the gift as a political statement against Trump himself, the New York Times reports, but does believe that the outbreak of hateful acts since the election traces to things Trump and his supporters have said or countenanced.

Mr. Soros, a Holocaust survivor originally from Hungary, said in a telephone interview this week that he was “deeply troubled” by hundreds of reports of possible hate crimes since the election — including many Nazi swastikas spray-painted on cars and buildings.
