Donald Trump is making great strides toward filling out his administration.
David Brock is gathering liberal super-donors to stop the president-elect.
According to Politico, the Media Matters founder invited more than 200 of George Soros’ closest allies, including Democracy Alliance co-founder Tom Steyer, to join him in Palm Beach, Florida over election weekend.
Brock’s goal appears to be the formation of a “Koch-brothers-like donor network,” a network that Politico notes will be “more overtly and aggressively political” than Soros’ advocacy group-centered alliance.
“This will be THE gathering for Democratic donors from across the country to hear from a broad and diverse group of leaders about the next steps for progressives under a Trump Administration,” Brock wrote in the invitation. “What better way to spend inaugural weened than talking about how to kick Donald Trump’s ass?”
Brock told Politico that his donor network won’t be “representing a faction of the Democratic Party, but a cross-section of it, so we’re not going to precook things ideologically.”
“It is very politically minded, and there is an urgency to it.”
