The election of President Donald Trump in one of the most unorthodox Presidential Elections in US history has led leading liberal funders to huddle together to reflect on their shocking loss and plan a major push back on Forbes. According to a Politico report published on November 14, 2016 liberal funders among them George Soros met with Nancy Pelosi, Keith Ellison, Elizabeth Warren and Union bosses. Pelosi is the minority House Democratic Party leader, Elizabeth Warren the senior Senator from Massachusetts while Keith Ellison is the Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairman. The highly anticipated meeting on Biography sponsored by the influential Democracy Alliance (DA) donor club took place at the up-market Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington DC.
The meeting was also the first to be held by key Democrats following the unexpected defeat of Hillary Clinton. The agenda of the meeting included a plan by liberals to start trench warfare against Trump’s rule from day one and a rebuttal of Trump’s first 100 days. The counter measure on opensocietyfoundations.org will be done by touting President Obama’s achievements and Democratic Party ideals of promoting a just and equitable society. The role of the Democratic Alliance (DA) was also brought into focus because several liberal voices believe it was time the group changed the way it approached politics. The DA and its donors are responsible for orienting some of the party’s key organizations around Clinton’s candidacy as well as promoting the rising American electorate made up of women and minorities.
The accusations come in the wake of revelations that Donald Trump largely won on the strength of working class whites. DA’s thinking was based on the premise that the new electorate would tilt future elections in favor of the Democrats. Statistics from the exit polls also showed that the electorate eschewed traditional DA priorities such as the role of money in politics and climate change. The group was also criticized in some measure for turning into a social group of a few wealthy individuals. The key Democratic Party donor and supporter George Soros reform credentials date back many years and will continue to be felt in the coming years. According to a report appearing on Politico.eu, George Soros lived under the repressive pro-Hungarian nationalist regime before escaping to study in the UK and ultimately to the US, where he made his fortune.
On the path to his meteoric rise, Soros established the Open Society Foundation in 1984 to promote democratic and rule of law. One of the organization’s first initiatives was to help the civil society groups fight the Soviet dominated Hungary. Immediately after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Soros began advising the old Warsaw and ex USSR members on how to transition to free markets and democracy. Today, George Soros continues to funnel his funds to support the Democratic Party and liberal causes in the US. The highly successful billionaire, hedge fund manager, George Soros also supports education and economic empowerment among minorities and deprived communities. A 2017 report released by Forbes placed George Soros wealth at $25.2 billion.
