Tom Steyer, who made his fortune running Farallon Capital, has not been shy about speaking out against Trump or spending his vast fortune to get him out of office. Steyer has been one of the loudest voices calling to impeach the President and gave $72.5 million to different Democratic candidates and PACs. He viewed the midterm elections as critical to a possible impeachment, telling CNBC before the election that we're screwed if the Democrats didn't perform well. The Democrats ended up re-taking the House of Representatives.

Jim Simons, who created secretive quant fund Renaissance Technologies, can certainly afford it: Simons made $1.6 billion in 2018, despite stepping away from day-to-day leadership of the fund nearly a decade ago. Citadel founder Ken Griffin, who told an audience at the Milken conference last month that soaking the rich doesn't work, was the third-biggest donor to Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections.

Soros, who was born in Hungary and survived Nazi rule there as a child, donated nearly $17 million in the cycle. His son, Alex, and daughter, Andrea, also made the list, donating a combined $4 million to Democratic causes. Boston billionaire Seth Klarman was once the biggest Republican donor in the state of Massachusetts, but has been vocal against Trump. His spending reflects his distaste with the current administration, as he gave more than $5 million to support Democrats.

He donated to candidates in swing districts like Conor Lamb as well as Beto O'Rourke's failed campaign to win one of Texas' Senate seats from Ted Cruz.

He supported Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the primaries, before eventually donating to Trump's inauguration fund. He has met with Trump in the White House since, telling an audience in 2017 that he became optimistic about some of the opportunities in economic growth and regulatory reform, tax reform.

The former chief scientist for the secretive quant fund gave roughly $4.5 million during the midterm cycle. Laufer helped start the the Long Island-based hedge fund with Jim Simons, another large donor to Democrats. Laufer and his wife Marsha, who held a $500-a-plate fundraising dinner for Hillary Clinton in Florida in 2016, donated to several PACs supporting female candidates. Seemingly to balance out the large donations made to the other side by Simons and Laufer, former Renaissance Technologies co-CEO Robert Mercer has been one of the biggest Republican donors the last few elections. Mercer, who originally supported Sen. Ted Cruz for president, has been supportive of Trump, and was a main backer of right-wing Brietbart News, which has supported the president's immigration agenda. Mercer gave $4.3 million in the most recent election cycle. Steve Cohen, the billionaire founder of Point72, was a big backer of former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's run for president, and, in the most recent election cycle, gave millions to make sure Republicans did not lose control of the Senate.

Jeb Bush during the primaries, and told The New York Times that he would be voting for Clinton over Trump in the election. Since the election, he has sought, similar to Singer, to support more moderate Republicans in primary races. He has also supported California democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. He also donated to nearly $50,000 in 2016 to support the controversial Proposition Q in San Francisco, which banned tents on sidewalks.
