George Soros, Supporter of the Democratic Party

George Soros is a hedge fund manager, a noted donor, and a supporter of the Democratic Party. Soros and other members of the Democracy Alliance club organized a conference for members of the Democratic Party after Trump won the election. Some of the individuals who spoke at the conference were Senator Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, and Keith Ellison. The meeting on was the first gathering of the major stakeholders of the Democratic Party after the surprise loss of Hilary Clinton. Some of the main agendas discussed included the way forward for the party during the next elections and how they would work to thwart Trump’s attack on Obama’s legacy on Some of the members of the party called for a complete retooling of the Democratic Party so that it would evolve accordingly with modern times. Many of the topics that were discussed at the conference were changed since most people had predicted that Clinton would win the election.

The Democracy Alliance donor club was started in 2004 by mega-donors of the Democratic Party such as the late Peter Lewis and George Soros. The club has more than 100 members today and includes moguls such as Donald Sussman, Tom Steyer, and several organizations such as liberal foundations and labor unions. Members of the club are required to contribute at least two hundred thousand dollars to groups that are recommended by the party. They also make a yearly contribution of more than $30,000 which caters for meetings and events on Forbes held by the club. Interested donors of the party were given an exclusive tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The party has contributed more than half a billion dollars to groups that are affiliated with the Democratic Party including the Center for American Progress and Catalyst which is a data firm that is run by allies of Clinton.

George Soros first ventured into political funding during the 2004 election when he supported John Kerry’s campaign to ensure that George Bush was not re-elected. Soros was mainly involved in the last election judging from his donation of more than 25 million dollars towards candidates running on a Democratic ticket. He has not been majorly involved with previous gatherings organized by the group, but it was different this time since he even led a panel at the conference that took place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington D.C. George Soros was very vocal about the candidature of Trump and has called him an impostor and not a president. He had called out Trump and Ted Cruz for doing the work of ISIS during the campaigns.

Soros gave to some super PACS that are affiliated with the Democratic Party during the last election cycle. He gave 2 million dollars to American Bridge 21st Century which is a super PAC that conducts research on the opposition. Soros committed $5 million to both Immigrant Voters win and Voters Right Trust which works by increasing the turnout of minority voters and fighting the opposition’s efforts to ensure people do not vote. He also supported Senate Majority PAC which funds Democratic Senate Candidates and America Votes which mobilizes people to vote.
