Top Democratic donor George Soros, spent millions of dollars in an attempt to elect Hillary Clinton as president. After the election of Donald Trump, George Soros has invited many top big-money donors and leaders of unions and liberal groups, as well as top Democrat leaders to a retreat at Washington’s exclusive Mandarin Oriental hotel.
The conference which lasted three-days was hosted by George Soros founded Democracy Alliance club. The meeting featured appearances by House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairman Keith Ellison. This meeting is the first major meeting with top Democratic leaders since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.
The gathering will focus on planning full-on warfare against Donald Trump and his First 100 Days Plan, along with a strong focus on gearing up for the 2017 and 2018 elections. Democrats are calling Trump’s 100 day-plan an assault on President Obama’s legacy and their dream for a just nation. George Soros’ retreat comes as many liberals are reconsidering their approach to politics within the realm of political contributions.
Soros and his fellow members of the Democracy Alliance have been a major player in reforming liberal institutions and gearing them more towards a Clinton presidency. Soros and the DA have focused their strategy around the belief that minorities and women would become the rising electorate that would shift elections to Democrats.
Liberal leaders have taken a look at polling that suggest issues such as fighting climate change and campaign financing are not major issues, which were expected to bring out more voters to the polls. George Soros believes the group does not need to completely retool its approach to politics.
Democracy Alliance along with Soros are beginning the process of analyzing what steps they will take to resist the attacks from the right to take back power, beginning in 2017 and 2018. Democracy Alliance members along with Soros are working on rethinking polling and finding a new approach to winning the working-class vote and urging donors to funneling cash into state legislative policy battles.
George Soros launched the Democracy Alliance was launched following the election of George W. Bush, who spent millions trying to boost John Kerry’s challenge to President George W. Bush. Soros’ goal was to establish advocacy groups and think tanks that could push the party and its leaders to the left while defending them against attacks from the Republican party. The group includes more than 100 financial giants.
