After the presidential election of 2016, well known billionaire investor met with Democrat leaders in Washington. At this meeting, he would talk to them about their next strategy in order to regain control of the House and senate in 2018. With the defeat of Hillary Clinton along with Republicans getting a majority of the House and Senate, Democrat leaders are looking for ways to regain the confidence of voters. The first thing they will look to do is challenge the policies of Donald Trump. Since many Democrats believe that Trump’s direction is unsatisfactory, they will look to impose progressive policies that will hopefully keep American evolving socially and economically during the next four years.
The weekend following the presidential election, George Soros attended a meeting in Washington where he would talk to Democrat leaders about politics. Since George Soros is a strong believer in liberal progressive policies, he collaborated with Democrats to go over their strategy. During this meeting, Soros would hold serious discussions with top level Democrat politicians as well as union leaders. The meeting will likely put together the foundation for the Democrat’s strategy in getting the majority of seats in the House and Senate by the mid term elections. Soros and Democrats laid out a plan to maintain Obamacare, appoint new leadership and also invest in more effective campaigns in conservative and swing states.

After the meetings, George Soros and the Democrat leaders looked to help keep Obamacare. Since the policy was a significant achievement in terms of providing healthcare for all Americans, Democrats believe that it must not be repealed. However, the Republicans have suggested eliminating this policy which has caused a significant conflict of interest. As a result, the Democrats will look to oppose the suggestions of Trump and conservatives on their plans to repeal Obamacare. If they are able to succeed in maintaining Obamacare with some compromises, the Democrats will be able to reach one of their main goals during the next four years.
Another one of the goals of Democrats is to appoint new leadership. The party believes that a new face will help them get in better position to achieve their goals. One of the first steps that the party will take is to name Minnesota Democrat senator Keith Ellison as the new head of the Democratic National Committee. With his appointment, Ellison will be in position to take the lead in challenging conservatives and the agenda of Donald Trump. Ellison has the experience in politics to ensure that compromises will be made as well as making sure that progressive policy in the nation is adopted on a consistent basis.
Along with appointing new leaderships, the Democrats and George Soros believe that they need to reach out to voters in conservative states. The lack of votes from the working class in conservative states led to a comprehensive defeat during the last election. As a result, Democrats and George Soros will spend more campaign money in order to help Democrats reach out to these voters and win their trust. By getting the trust and confidence of voters in conservative states, it is likely that the Democrats will be able to successfully adopt their policies and regain a majority of power.

Since two former Soros’s employees are funding the Republican candidate John Kasich, there has been a television ad linking Kasich’s campaign on marketwatch.com and the investor George Soros. The ad claims that Soros is bankrolling Kasich’s super PAC and included the phrase, “Hundreds of thousands of dollars from George Soros”. The truth is that Soros can fund any political group, but everything has to be public according to the campaign finance rules. There is no need to hide even if he was manipulating Kasich’s campaign to discourage the ambitions of other politicians like Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. All you need to find out about the list of donors is to get the campaign finance records.
Scott Bessent is one of the employees linking Soros to Kasich’s campaign. He was the former Soros Fund Management Chief Investment Officer, who is now managing his company that received seed capital from George Soros. The campaign finance records show his donations amounting to $2,700 to Kasich directly and $200,000 to New Day for America. He has also contributed to Republican National Committee with ($39,800), Jeb Bush with $5,000 and $25,000 to Ready for Hillary PAC.
Stanley Druckmiller was the former manager of Soros assets from 1988 to 2000. He donated $450,000 to New Day for America in 2015. He neither has shared any of the Soros political philosophies nor donor histories. Druckmiller has consistently given money to Republican National Committee and super PACs of various Republican candidates. On the contrary, Soros has always given funding to groups supporting Democrat Candidates, and there is no way former employees funding Republicans means working under Soros. Therefore, the claims are false and only meant to deceive the voters.
