After Donald Trump’s election win, George Soros, Nancy Pelosi, and Warren Buffet as well as other liberals are trying to figure out what they will do next. The rich liberals met for a 3-day closed door meeting, recently to plan how they will fight back against Trump. The meeting was sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donor club. It included leaders of labor unions and major liberal groups. Senator Elizabeth Warren and Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairman Keith Ellison were expected.
This was the first gathering of its kind, since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the election. They plan all out warfare on Trump, starting immediately. Many liberals are beginning to re-access their approach to politics after the shocking results of this year’s election. Many are starting to worry about upcoming elections for the House and Senate races and how they can regain seats.
George Soros has recently backed off his involvement in campaigns, however committed $25 million to helping Hillary Clinton get elected in this year’s campaign. Soros typically doesn’t attend DA meetings, so his attendance at the most recent one, shows that he is committed to opposing Trump. The Democracy Alliance was started in 2004 by George Soros and the late Peter Lewis. They combined their funds and efforts to promote the Democratic Party and liberal causes.
Although, George Soros bid to get Clinton elected failed, he also pushed to unseat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He contributed $2 million to a group working to defeat Arpaio Soros was involved in this election, because he disagreed with Arpaio’s enforcement of immigration laws. This was his single largest investment in a local race during 2016. Many believe that Soros will become more active in the political scene after Trump takes office, because of his strong stance on immigration laws.
Soros has contributed millions of dollars to fund efforts to defeat local prosecutors and bring in new people who support criminal justice reform. He is currently spending large amounts in Harris County, in Houston. He is supporting campaigns in Gilpin and Jefferson Counties near Denver. In the same region, Maricopa County where George Soros funded campaigns against the sheriff, he funded campaigns against the Republican District Attorney, Bill Montgomery. It is fair to say that Soros name will be appearing as part of the political scene for some time to come, especially with the new administration preparing to take charge.
