Alexander Soros — a prolific Democratic fundraiser in his own right who likes to boast about his relationships with world leaders on social media — scored at least a dozen meetings with White House officials in 2022, according to recently updated White House visitor logs. Soros, 37, also participated in two other confabs there in late 2021, the records show.
His latest trips include visiting Dec. 1 with then-White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain’s advisor Nina Srivastava, who also worked on Biden’s presidential campaign, the logs show.
Later that evening. the younger Soros was one of 330 people who attended a lavish state dinner on the White House South Lawn hosted by the president and First Lady Jill Biden honoring French President Emmanuel Macron and Macron’s wife, Brigitte.
A day later, Alexander Soros — who chairs the powerful, liberal grant-making network Open Society Foundations founded by his dad — met with both Advisor to the Counselor of President Mariana Adame and Deputy National Security Advisor Jonathan Finer, records show.

His previous White House meetings included earlier sitdowns with Adame on October 14; Srivastava on September 14; Finer on Dec. 15, 2021, and October 6 and September 15 of last year, according to records.
Soros also had meetings with Kimberly Lang, then a National Security Advisor executive assistant, on October 6; and former Klain advisor Madeline Strasser on Oct. 29, 2021, and April 22, 2022.
It’s unclear what was discussed at the meetings, and the White House did not return messages.
Mike Howell, director of the Oversight Project at the Conservative Heritage Foundation, said the younger Soros’ easy White House access is troubling considering the Soros family has already “done tremendous damage to our country.”

“The Soros agenda is one of death and destruction in the name of open borders and ending Western Civilization,” he said. “The Biden administration and rogue prosecutor movement may be [its] most damaging purchase in America to date.”
The Soros family’s influence over White House policy has never been stronger, according to Matt Palumbo, author of “The Man Behind the Curtain: Inside the Secret Network of George Soros.”
“All throughout the White House, there is a Soros hold somewhere, and his son is his father’s new ambassador,” Palumbo told The Post.
White House records show an expansive list of Soros’ meetings with top officials:
Following the 2020 presidential election, Biden’s transition team was filled with liberals connected to Soros’ network, and Biden’s cabinet was also armed with Soros loyalists, Palumbo said.
Alexander Soros, seen here with former President Barack Obama, scored 14 White House meetings in a little over a year.
They included Klain, a board member of the lobbying wing of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank that pushes abortion rights, climate-change policies, and other causes.
George Soros typically tries to keep a lower profile, exerting influence by donating under the radar to lefty candidates and funneling money to liberal causes through his Open Society Foundations and related nonprofits he founded, which have doled out more than $32 billion worldwide since 1984, according to its website.
The Hungarian-born, 92-year-old has recently come under renewed fire from conservatives linking him to former President Donald Trump’s legal woes.
They point to the elder Soros donating $1 million in 2021 to the left-wing Color of Change political action committee that backed Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan district attorney who convened the grand jury that indicted Trump late last month on criminal charges over an alleged hush-money payment.
Soros — whose payment to Color of Change was part of a larger effort to finance a criminal justice revolution aimed at abolishing bail and defunding police — has denied supporting Bragg’s campaign directly or even knowing the soft-on-crime DA.
Alexander Soros’ politicking is much more of an open book than his father’s.
The younger Soros has individually donated more than $11 million to lefty political action committees since 2010 – including $2 million in 2018 to the Senate Majority PAC that Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has major influence over, records show.
A review of his Instagram page shows him visiting with Schumer at least nine times since 2018, and posing with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) eight times.

The account also highlights photos of him with his dad, as well as with former President Barack Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris, and other prominent Dems at fundraisers he hosted or other events.
Scoring 14 White House meetings in a little over a year suggests the younger Soros has “an outsize policy influence in the Biden administration” rivaling the easy access only a select few as American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten has, said Tom Fitton, president of the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch.
George Soros is pursuing an “aggressive environmental agenda,” open-border initiatives, and other far-left causes dear to him, Fitton added.

“Don’t be distracted by Alex’s name in the visitor log; it’s a George Soros rep they’re looking to meet with at the Biden White House…He’s still calling the shots, it’s his money, his foundations,” Fitton insisted.
But it is Alexander who is most poised of the elder Soros’ five kids to eventually lead his family’s multibillion-dollar political and philanthropic network, said Scott Walter, president of conservative think tank Capital Research Center.
“Like his father, he cozies up to White House and congressional leaders willing to do the family’s bidding on such issues as crime, immigration, election policy, and more, as the Soroses exploit every type of giving: money to parties, independent expenditure groups, and so-called charities,” Walter told the Washington Examiner, which first documented the White House jaunts.
“No wonder former staffers and grantees of their foundations, donor groups, and lobbying shops are found throughout the Biden administration, from the State Department to the Domestic Policy Council.”
A Soros spokesman declined to comment.
