George Soros is banding with other affluent liberals that utilized tens of millions of US dollars to support Clinton’s presidential bid to fight back against Trump. Soros and his rich liberal friends were said to have a three-day, closed-door meeting in Washington with the agenda of retooling whatever funds left to fight back against President Donald Trump. The conference was held at Mandarin Oriental Hotel, which is a pricey Washington hotel, on Sunday was sponsored by an influential donor club, Democracy Alliance.
The Soros-led meeting was expected to include appearances by the leaders of the most vocal and leading liberal and union groups. In addition, according to POLITICO, Keith Ellison, the co-chairperson of Congressional Progressive Caucus and Nancy Pelosi, House Democratic Leader, as well as Senator Elizabeth Warren, would also make appearances in the conference on opensocietyfoundations.org. The gathering is the fits major meeting of the institutional left since Donald Trump received a shocking victory over Hilary Clinton in the last Presidential elections. Observably, if the agenda serves as a reliable indication, liberals are planning a full-on trench warfare against the president from the first day.
Interestingly, some sessions on Investopedia embark on gearing up for the 2017 and 2018 elections, while others majorly focus on frustrating the 100-day plan of President Trump. The agenda refers Trump’s 100-day plan as a “terrifying assault on the achievements of President Barrack Obama.” In addition, the liberals view Trump’s perception, and undertaking of things as a terrorizing assail on the nation’s progressive vision for a just and equitable society. However, the meeting seemingly comes when a majority of liberals is reevaluating their political approach as well as the role of DA, or Democracy Alliance as it is known among the Democratic finance circles.
The Democracy Alliance, its beneficiary groups as well as its donors have, for over the last decade played a significant role in shaping and steering the institutions on the left. This is by addition the orientation of some of its critical organizations around Clinton, and by passing their approach and strategy around the idea that women and minorities constitute the so-called “rising American electorate,” which could favorably tip Democrats elections. However, this is in contrast to what was witnessed in the last presidential elections where Donald Trump won primarily leveraging the support of the working-class whites on discoverthenetworks.org.
In addition, there was an indication by exit polls, which suggested that issues such as the role of money in politics and fighting climate change, which have been used by the beneficiaries of the Democracy Alliance to try to turn voters out in large numbers, did not resonate well with the electorate supporting Donald Trump. George Soros launched the Democracy Alliance after the 2004 polls. Currently, the groups have more than one hundred affluent members and include finance titans and moguls such as George Soros, Donald Sussman, Tom Steyer as well as major liberal foundations and labor unions. The organization requires its members to make a total of at least $200,000 in yearly contributions to recommended groups. As a way of funding the meeting and staff of the Democracy Alliance, members are also required to remit $30,000 in annual dues.
