George Soros is one of the major Democratic donors who has spoken out against Donald Trump and is now fighting to control what policy is passed down by the new president-elect Donald Trump. Following the election of Donald Trump, George Soros gathered dozens of rich liberals for a three-day, closed door meeting to revive the left’s fight against Donald Trump.
The meeting was held at Washington D.C.’s expensive Mandarin Oriental hotel. The meeting on theatlantic.com was sponsored by Soros’ donor club named the Democracy Alliance. Several leading Democrats made appearances including Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairman Keith Ellison.
The seminar is the first gathering of leading Democrats since Trump’s upset victory over Hillary Clinton. Throughout the event, liberals planned-out full on trench warfare against Donald Trump from day one. This meeting has revealed that the Democrats are focusing on stopping President-elect Donald Trump’s 100-day plan on politico.com, which they call a terrifying attack on President Obama’s legacy.
The meeting comes as many on the left are reconsidering their approach to politics and the future role of the Democracy Alliance. The Democracy Alliance on nybooks.com, along with its fellow donors have had major hand in shaping policy important to the left. They are also responsible for restructuring their key organizations towards Clinton, and reshaping their strategy towards tipping elections towards the Democrats by highlighting that minorities and women have become the “rising American electorate.”
The 2016 election, showed that was not the case, where Trump was able to win over the working-class whites at http://www.forbes.com/profile/george-soros/. The Democracy Alliance attempted to use fighting climate change and money in politics as a way to draw voters to the polls, but exit polls proved those were not major concerns among voters.
Liberals are beginning to invest more in developing policies within the states. George Soros launched Democracy Alliance in 2004, following the 2004 election, when a handful of mega-donors joined forces to spend millions trying to elect John Kerry as President. The Democracy Alliance has given more than $500 million to a variety of liberal groups that share the ideas as George Soros.
Many subjects expected to be covered at the meeting had to be scrapped because of the results of the 2016 election, including a discussion on how to support Clinton’s First 100-day plan.
George Soros continues to be a strong force inside the Democratic party, and will continue to shape policy that is close to him including criminal justice reform, with a focus on sentencing reform.
