George Soros Meets with Democrats to Discuss New Strategy
After the most recent presidential election, Democrat leaders regrouped and looked to find ways to regain power. Since the party lost both the House and the Senate, it is now in need of a new strategy to win over voters and hopefully get a majority of seats by the midterm elections of 2018. The Democrats met with billionaire George Soros in Washington to begin discussions. George Soros has long been a valuable ally to the Democrat party for many years. He has regularly contributed millions of dollars to liberal Democrat candidates which have been quite substantial. As a result of his contributions, he has been able to provide the party with a considerable amount of resources for campaigns. He will look to do this again over the next couple of years. During meetings, the Democrats and George Soros concluded that they will need to appoint new leadership, invest more money in campaigns and preserve Obamacare.
During the meetings with George Soros, the Democrats will be looking to challenge a number of Donald Trump’s policies. They believe that Trump will likely create a lot of problems if his policies are enforced. Democrat leaders will look to contest Trump on immigration. It has been well known that Trump has looked to deport millions of immigrants once he becomes president. However, the Democrats believe that this will create a lot of social unrest and ruin the lives of many immigrants living in the nation. Therefore, they will look to make sure these immigrants stay in the nation. The Democrats are also concerned about Trump increasing the deficit and national debt. George Soros’ desire to cut taxes will lead to more economic inequality as well as leading to fiscal problems. As a result, the Democrats will look to prevent Trump from adopting policies that can potentially set the nation back.

In order to increase their chances of regaining power, the Democrats believe that it will be necessary to appoint new leadership. This will help the party have new faces and therefore lead to setting up a progressive agenda. It will also allow the Democrats to have a new perspective on how to facilitate fiscal responsibility and social progress. They are now looking to appoint Keith Ellison as the head of the Democratic National Committee. With his appointment, Ellison will be in position to rally the Democrats and look for a number of quality politicians that will appeal to voters in the near future.
As well as appointing new leadership, the Democrats are also looking to find ways to appeal to more voters. They will look to invest more money in the campaigns of party members who run in conservative states. With the help of George Soros, the Democrats will likely have access to millions of dollars to put together more effective campaigns. The Democrats believe that they will need to win the trust of the working class voters. This particular group of voters elected Trump and the Republicans. Democrats will need to get votes from this demographic in order to get back control of both the senate and the House of Representatives.
