Soros Bent On Denying Trump Presidency

George Soros is well known for his political and monetary contributions to the Democratic Party. He certainly was one of those who helped back the campaign of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election. It has been reported that Soros donated nearly $25 million to the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and other major Democratic races throughout the country in 2016. While things did not turn out the way that Soros had planned, the billionaire hedge fund manager plans to get some of his other wealthy liberal friends in making sure that they can do all they can to interrupt a Donald Trump presidency.

George Soros has spearheaded a closed door meeting in Washington this week where some of the major Democratic fundraisers are attending. It is also being said that the Democratic minority house leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Elizabeth Warren are attending. Soros believes that bringing together the core of the Democratic Party now will help them set a new agenda and have hopes of derailing a Trump presidency. The most important thing is that they have their eyes set on taking back the White House come the election of 2020.

George Soros rises again

The meeting taking place in Washington is the first gathering of the Democratic elite since the lost election in November. It is believed that there will be discussions on local and national elections across the country over the next two years. One of the main goals of the new meeting will be one to discuss how to thwart the progress of Trump’s 100 day plan or his goals for his first 100 days in office.

One leading Democratic strategist says that Trump’s 100 day plan is one that is a ‘terrifying assault on President Obama’s achievements’. Other critics believe that there will be some strong looks at the Democratic Alliance by George Soros. The Democratic Alliance has been a major funding source and benefactor of the liberal party and their influence could be one that could help tip the political power in the United States back to the left. There are those that believe that the Democratic Alliance wields too much power and that they could actually be a part of the reason that the Democrats lost the 2016 election.

Democratic Alliance chairman Gara LaMarche though says that the party needs to pick up the pieces and that there should not be any ‘finger pointing’ and that all efforts must be made to ‘resist a Trump administration’.

The three day meeting is taking place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington. Some of the other key strategy points that the liberal meeting will be discussing is increasing voting turnout, the rethinking of the polling process, and the importance of channeling funds to local and state races.

George Soros Donates $25 Million to Liberal Causes

A hedge fund multi-billionaire, George Soros, is donating $25 million to Democratic Party to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid as well as other party candidates. This is not only meant to support Mrs. Clinton herself, but liberal causes such as support for immigration and criminal justice reform.

Religious tolerance is also high on Soros’ agenda. Coming from a Jewish family, he grew up in Nazi-occupied Hungary from where he moved to the United Kingdom, and then America where he amassed a $25 billion fortune in the financial markets. George Soros is also an advocate for Middle Eastern refugees, most of whom are young men.

No wonder he abhors Donald Trumps, a real estate billionaire who wants to build a wall with Mexico and stop Muslim migration to the United States. This is not the first time this mega rich financier throws his vast wealth into politics. Back in 2004, Soros spent $27 million in failed campaigns aiming to unseat George W. Bush.

George Soros is recognized as a financial markets guru. In 1992, his fund made well over a billion dollars in a single day on a bet against the British Pound. Over the decades, Soros’ hedge fund Soros Fund Management has returned above market returns, beating nearly all other funds.

This 85-year-old financier has media closely follow his statements, whether about finance or political issues. Foundations which George Soros sponsors operate in more than 100 countries and seek to bring their liberal agendas over there. This often happens in opposition to existing governments. It has even come to the point where Russia asked these foundations to leave after claiming they’re a threat to a national security.

No wonder Soros supports Clinton on investopedia.com. If her campaign trails Trump’s in the polls, he’s likely to help with raising more millions, especially from the leftist circles he’s well acquainted with. Will his money make a difference this time or will it be 2004 all over again? That is yet to be seen.
