Democracy Alliance seeks to combat 'massive threats' from Trump, Republicans
Liberal billionaire George Soros is meeting behind closed doors with top Democrats to plot a resistance strategy against President-elect Donald Trump and Republicans.
The three-day conference began Sunday at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Washington, D.C., and is sponsored by deep-pocketed liberal members of the dark money Democracy Alliance donor network,Politico‘s Ken Vogel first reported. The group will seek to pick up the pieces from the 2016 election, plot its strategy for upcoming elections, and map out a game plan to battle Trump during his first 100 days in office.
“The first 100 days of a new presidency has become an important measure of the early success of a new administration,” the group’s agenda reads. “It’s a period typically seen as a time when monumental change can occur as the president, armed with the good will and political capital that comes with being the new president, is able to marshal new legislation through Congress.”
The agenda, which was drafted before the election, was geared toward a Hillary Clinton presidency. However, following Trump’s victory, the group shifted gears to figure out what happened in the election and ways of “combating the massive threats from Trump and Congress in 2017.”
