A petition calling for President Trump to declare leftist billionaire George Soros a terrorist and seize the assets of organizations tied to him has reached the threshold that requires a response from the White House.
The petition, which needed 100,000 signatures by Sept. 19, had 140,706 signatures as of Wednesday morning.
Declaring Soros a terrorist would be premature but he should be investigated. He’s very far-left and is funding leftist causes across the nation and throughout the world. Some of the causes are communist and anarchist with the hope of overthrowing our government and way of life. He’s also been influencing local, state, and federal elections by supporting the furthest left candidates with inordinate sums of money.
The petition reads:
Whereas George Soros has willfully and on an ongoing basis attempted to destabilize and otherwise commit acts of sedition against the United States and its citizens, has created and funded dozens (and probably hundreds) of discrete organizations whose sole purpose is to apply Alinsky model terrorist tactics to facilitate the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United State, and has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the US Federal government, the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists, and have all of his personal an organizational wealth and assets seized under Civil Asset Forfeiture law.
Another petition asking Trump to recognize the antifa movement as a terrorist organization last month has reached over 346,000 signatures, well beyond the threshold after which the White House must reply.
Most of the time, Presidents ignore these petitions.
