George Soros and his millionaire and billionaire pals who were among the biggest donors to liberal election causes in the 2016 election are not letting the results of that election deter them in any way. In reaction the unprecedented Trump victory Soros and many other wealthy donors are meeting in Washington DC for a 3 day strategy meeting. This meeting is dedicated to finding ways to block the right wing Trump agenda at every turn.
The gathering took place at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in downtown DC. Many luminaries in the Democratic party will be attending such as San Francisco House Representative Nancy Pelosi and candidate for House leadership Keith Ellison. The event is being officially put on by the Democracy Alliance Donor Club which is one of the premier Democratic lobbying organizations in DC by George Soros.
One of the major themes of the meeting is going to be why the Democratic Party lost so decisively during the 2016 election. The DA, or Democratic Alliance has been at the forefront of developing and implementing Democratic Party principles on Time.com through the government. Their main goal was to capture the large number of latinos and other minorities to create a massive coalition of progressive voters. Source: http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros
Since that groundswell never occurred this meeting is dedicated to finding out why. One of the main issues being brought up is the fact that the so called firewall did not hold and working class white voters voted Trump in droves. This meeting on Biography is going to be one of the first steps to finding out how to recapture that portion of the electorate.
The nomination for the Democratic National Committee Chairperson is also going to be a major avenue of discussion. Representative Keith Ellison is set to replace outgoing chairman Debbie Wasserman Schulz. This would be a major change in policy for the Democratic Party since Ellison represents the Bernie Sanders wing of the party. He is also one of very few Muslim members of congress and would be the first Muslim national party chairmen. George Soros and other wealthy donors will have their work cut out for them at this meeting.
