George Soros has been a household name in the US due to his various contributions to politics and society. His name is widely mentioned in Democrats politics as one of the founders of the Democratic Alliance (DA).
Soros is Hungarian-born American. He is a businessman, an investor, philanthropist, author, and political activist. He strongly values the family setup. He has a wife, children, and grandchildren. He is a self-made billionaire and currently chairs Soros Fund Management. George Soros is very philanthropic as he donates funds to organizations and individuals fighting against oppression and violations of freedoms of expressions among others. He is committed to spending his money in fighting against an oppressive and unaccountable government besides funding promotion of justice and equality in the society.
Soros is an ardent member and supporter of the Democrat Party on Time. He has been giving his social and financial support to the Democratic presidential and other positions candidates during their campaigns. He is on record as a chief financier of the Democratic candidates in the previous elections.
During the just concluded election, he was one of the chief financiers of the Hillary Clinton campaigns as well as other Democratic candidates on project-syndicate.org. He spent millions on Hillary campaigns with the hope of taking to the white house. However, she did not win the elections.
The shocking win by Donald Trump prompted George Soros and the other member of the Democratic Alliance to convene a meeting to discuss the way forward. The Democratic Alliance members at http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/ felt that they should do something to challenge the election of Donald Trump. The aim of doing this is to protect and safeguard the Obama legacy that Trump had promised to discard. One of the legacies that DA feels the Trump regime might assault includes the ObamaCare.
The meeting was held at Mandarin Hotel in Washington. The meeting was sponsored by the Democrat All Donor Club. The meeting brought together member of the DA, union leaders, and liberal groups on nytimes.com.
In this meeting, Soros together with other Democrat diehards and liberals discussed the reasons for losing the elections. They noted that Hillary lost as the Democrat failed to capture the entire working class whites vote which Trump did. Besides, the money and climate were not a major factor in the just concluded elections. They realized that majority of the liberal activists resided in the coastal cities and did not connect with the working class whites.
Therefore, the DA decided that to retrace this working class votes, the alliance should invest in training the officials and come up with state policies. The activist should also win the confidence of the working class whites. The DA donors should invest in the formulation of and implementation of the state and local strategies that would prevent assault to the Obama legacies.
Soros and his fellow wealthy donors and Democrats just want to ensure that Trump regime respects and upholds the immense work that the outgoing president has done. The meeting was not bound to challenge the decision of the majority, but to make sure the incoming regime will not oppress the citizens.
