President Donald Trump warned Republican senators not to waver when confronted by protestors throughout the U.S. capitol, in a Friday morning tweet.
The very rude elevator screamers are paid professionals only looking to make Senators look bad. Don’t fall for it! Also, look at all of the professionally made identical signs. Paid for by Soros and others. These are not signs made in the basement from love! #Troublemakers

Trump highlighted the alleged link between groups connected to liberal activist and billionaire George Soros and many of the protestors throughout Capitol Hill. The president made an apparent reference to “elevator screamers” who confronted Senator Jeff Flake last week, which was seen as a pivotal moment in his desire for a supplemental FBI investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Fox News revealed that one of the women who confronted Flake in the elevator, Ana Maria Archila, is co-executive director for the Center for Popular Democracy. The Center for Popular Democracy receives funding from Soros. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Soros-Backed Activists Slip Cash To Anti-Kavanaugh Protesters Before Arrests)
The president’s tweet comes as a procedural vote is set to occur on the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
