The post mortem over the 2016 U.S. Presidential election results and those for the U.S. Congress on cnbc.com has begun for the Democrats as some of the top party officials and major donors to the party made their way to Washington D.C. for a three day meeting that could lead to major changes in the party. Members of the Democracy Alliance group that regularly meets to discuss strategy and the latest political events will come together to decide how to move forward following the election of President Elect Donald Trump over the front runner Hillary Clinton.

The life story of George Soros has seen the man credited with breaking the Bank of England in the 1990s escape the Holocaust of World War II before embarking on a refugee journey to London and New York to begin his successful career in finance.
