It seems George Soros has not yet begun to fight. The billionaire investor is still furthering his efforts to defeat Donald Trump, even though the president-elect has already won the election.
George and other wealthy liberals who donated massive amounts of money to support Hillary Clinton’s campaign are meeting in the nation’s capital for a three-day discussion to see what can be done about Trump before and after he takes office.
The special closed-door conference will be held at Washington’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel and will include many prominent liberal group party members, as well as left-wing political figureheads like Sen. Elizabeth Warren and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.
The meeting is the first of its kind since Trump’s election into the White House and shows the concern that Soros and other democratic and liberal supporters have about Trump and his policies. In fact, it has been hinted that one of the meeting’s major agendas is to discuss a defense strategy against Trump’s 100-day plan, which Soros feels is a major threat to all Obama has accomplished while in office.
While thwarting Trump may be one of the main objectives of the meeting, other concerns relating to the Democratic party will be discussed. One such issue focuses on the Democracy Alliance’s future role in elections.

The Democracy Alliance (DA) and its beneficiaries have had a major impact in shaping left-wing and liberal institutions around female and minority votes. As the results of the latest election have proven, however, a new strategy will have to be implemented for future elections. That is if the Democratic party wishes to enter into power once again.
George Soros, being one of the major beneficiaries of the Democratic party over the years, is gravely concerned about why the DA’s beneficiary groups failed to influence working-class whites, the deciding factor in Trump’s victory. The DA’s stance on climate change and money in politics, two of its major platforms, had absolutely no bearing in changing the mind’s of the working class this time around.
The president of the DA, Gara LaMarche, has admitted that mistakes were definitely made by the organization, the cost of which is extremely high. However, he points out that before planning the DA’s future election strategy, the entire Democratic party along with all of its supporters should first band together.
LaMarche believes that attending parties should not point fingers and complain about who messed up. Instead, everyone should focus on strengthening the organization’s cohesiveness first in order to prevent Trump from ruining the country’s future, as well as to make sure that a person like him never gets into the White House again.
