Soros Bankrolls Coronavirus Attack Ads Against Trump

The Democratic Party’s leading super PAC will begin hitting President Donald Trump over coronavirus in four battleground states, using millions from liberal billionaire George Soros.

Priorities USA Action—the Democratic Party’s largest super PAC—will spend $6 million this week on advertisements criticizing Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic. The ads will run in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The PAC received $3 million in contributions from Soros’s Democracy PAC on Feb. 21, new filings show. Soros’s seven-figure donation accounts for 77 percent of the $3.9 million the PAC reported hauling in last month.

Major Democratic donors have flooded battleground states, especially in the Midwest, with cash for anti-Trump campaigns in hopes of appealing to the president’s voter base. CNN first reported Monday on Priorities USA’s new ads, which are part of a larger plan by deep-pocketed liberal financiers and activist groups to divert large sums of cash into the region. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in several Midwestern states that she was expected to carry in the 2016 election.

As part of this plan, Priorities USA has said it intends to spend upward of $150 million against Trump in states like Michigan and Wisconsin. The PAC has hauled in $27 million since January 2019. Its largest donor has been billionaire hedge fund manager Donald Sussman, who has given the group $8 million this cycle. Soros is now the group’s second-largest donor at $5 million.

The group did not respond to a request for comment.

Priorities is not the only group using the coronavirus pandemic to attack Trump. PACRONYM, a super PAC tied to the nonprofit ACRONYM, which was in charge of the botched Iowa app that caused chaos during the Iowa caucuses, is launching a similar campaign.

PACRONYM announced last Tuesday it will spend $5 million on digital advertising against Trump’s response to the pandemic. Tara McGowan, the founder of ACRONYM, said it’s imperative that Democratic groups push anti-Trump messaging while Democratic presidential contenders remain positive during the pandemic. Biden, however, slammed Trump on Monday over what he called a “failure of planning and preparation” for the coronavirus.

“This is a public health issue and a national security issue, but it’s also a public policy issue and thus a political one,” McGowan told the Washington Post.

McGowan’s dark money nonprofit, which does not disclose its donors, has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s PAC. It also received funding from failed presidential contender and billionaire donor Tom Steyer’s PAC.

PACRONYM received $250,000 from Soros’s Democracy PAC and $1 million from Sussman late last year. Hollywood director Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw added $1 million.

In addition to Priorities and PACRONYM, liberal operative David Brock’s American Bridge PAC has assailed Trump’s coronavirus response. American Bridge has also been active in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

    Attended the Bozeman Red Pill event MC’d by John back in 2017. That year’s event Introduced me to
    many wonderful people whose relationships I cherish today. Though James Perloff didn’t attend the Montana
    event, his book titled ‘Truth is a Lonely Warrior’ is in my mind a Mantra that needs to resonate in a world
    currently controlled by psychopathic………….! John, appreciate your exposing evil people like Soros, South African
    genocide, corrupt MSM misdirection/lies and other global atrocities. As many good people seek truth in these
    troubled times, people like you provide a guiding light God Bless John
