Far-left George Soros, who has been known to fund terrorist groups such as Antifa, is dumping heaps of cash onto the 2020 election with the hopes of defeating President Trump.
According to a new report, the liberal billionaire is pumping money into the Democracy PAC, according to The Washington Free Beacon, which said the super PAC is serving as the connecting point for other liberal political action committees and campaigns that are in turn supported by the Democracy PAC.
A Federal Elections Commission report shows that the Democracy PAC has received more than $40 million — already twice what he spent in 2016 — either directly from Soros or from the Fund
for Policy Reform, a not-for-profit group that operates under the umbrella of the Soros-funded Open Society Foundation network.
The website OpenSecrets lists Soros as having given $22.1 million to candidates in 2016, with 100 percent of the money funding those the site called Democrats and liberals.
The Beacon noted, “Many of the groups that receive money from Soros are top spenders backing massive anti-Trump campaigns. Priorities USA is the biggest outside spender this cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, having spent more than $28 million. Its efforts include anti-Trump advertisements focused on criticizing the president’s response to the coronavirus pandemic in the swing states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.”
The 2020 funding the Soros has pumped in is also going places such as the Senate Majority PAC, a committee tied to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
Soros trashed Trump in a recent interview published on the website of the European Council on Foreign Relations in which he claimed the president would not win a second term.
“Trump — also a would-be a dictator — can be accused of not being clever,” Soros said. “Trump cannot actually win the second term because of the way he mishandled the virus and caused many unnecessary deaths.”
Soros then went on to concoct a bizarre scenario which he claims the president could use to win re-election.
“The only chance for him to win is to steal the election by using the virus emergency to introduce measures that would discourage people from voting by mail. That’s his only chance, and he’s actually admitted it even if this leads to the postal service going bankrupt,” Soros said.
Trump is not only battling his enemies on the left. The Republican candidate who had to fight the “never Trump” movement within his party in 2016 is once again facing opposition from those within the GOP.
Yet another “Republican” super PAC called 43 Alumni for Biden has been formed with the goal of bringing members of the administration of former President George W. Bush to support presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to The Guardian.
The super PAC was co-founded by Kristopher Purcell and John Farner, who worked in the Bush administration, and Karen Kirksey, a GOP operative who serves as the super PAC’s director.
“We’re truly a grassroots organization. Our goal is to do whatever we can to elect Joe Biden as president,” Farner said.
Trump also faces GOP-based opposition from the Lincoln Project, which includes among its leadership George Conway, the husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, and Republican Voters Against Trump, which is led by Bill Kristol.
