A George Soros Consideration of the 2016 Presidential Election

It is now common knowledge that Donald Trump is the 2016 U.S. President-elect. George Soros is highly disappointed in that fact. The billionaire spent tens of millions of dollars in an effort to get Hillary Clinton elected as the next president. Mr. George Soros and other liberals have been in closed door meetings in Washington, working on a way to rage against the fact that Donald Trump won the election.

This is only the first of such gatherings by Mr. Soros since the surprising upset against Hillary Clinton. These meetings show that the agenda is loaded with plans to wage war against the Trump presidency, beginning on day one. Knowing that Trump’s agenda for America differs greatly from that of Hillary Clinton is a cause of great concern for Mr. Soros. As a member of the DA, or Democracy Alliance, many liberals are reevaluating their approach to politics.

Over the last decade, the DA, its donors and its beneficiary groups have played a major part in shaping the institutions and establishments on the left. This includes slanting key organizations around Clinton. They based their strategy around concepts that could tip elections to the Democrats.

Gara LaMarche, president of the DA, spoke at a post-election fundraiser. Remarks he provided to POLITICO included the following: “You don’t lose an election you were supposed to win, with so much at stake, without making some big mistakes, in assumptions, strategy and tactics.” The belief is that a reassessment is in order. LaMarche and Soros agree that there is a need to rebuild the post-Clinton Democratic party, and it needs a more aggressive and liberal aspect. The concern for the Clinton backers is that of protecting Obamacare against the designs of President-elect Trump.

DA members pay annual dues of $30,000, and are required to donate at least $200,000 a year to recommended groups. Since 2005, the DA has directed upward of $500m to groups such as Media Matters, Catalist and the Center for American Progress. These groups are all run by Clinton allies. Several DA donors have been faithful about donating to these groups, and others, for years. This includes George Soros, who committed or donated $25m to supporting Clinton. During presidential primaries, Soros made assertions that Trump was “doing the work of ISIS.”

While discussing the post-election results with Soros, LaMarche said he has no plans to compare a Trump era America with Nazism. Soros believes that there are things to be learned from the experience Trump brings to the office of the presidency. Add that to the experience Soros has with Brexit and European xenophobia, and there is much to discuss.

After the shake-up election, the session segued into two new and modified sessions. The first one focused on “what will happen now” and the second will be aimed at “combating the massive threats from Trump and Congress in 2017.
