Billionaire left-wing Democrat mega-donor Tom Steyer has qualified for the Democratic Party presidential primary debate in October, expanding the field to eleven candidates and requiring the debate to be held over two nights.
„Steyer was the top individual Democratic Party donor in 2014 and 2016, falling back to third place in 2018. He began his political career funding a nationwide campaign for action against climate change, and successfully urged the Senate — then run by Democrats — to hold an all-night talk session on climate change in 2014. He also spent millions of dollars through his own organization, NextGen America, to mobilize young voters in the 2018 elections.
Since the 2016 election, Steyer has urged the Democratic Party to impeach President Donald Trump. He started a new super PAC called “Need to Impeach,” spending tens of millions of dollars on television ads urging Trump’s impeachment and backing congressional candidates who promised to back the effort. The impeachment effort has been estimated to cost over $100 million, including 1000 paid staff and 2000 volunteers across the country.“ (…)
Tom Steyer ist ein weiteres Mitglied des „Clubs der Milliardäre“, der in der US-Politik eine bedeutende Rolle spielt, und zwar – ebenso wie bekanntlich George Soros – auf seiten der Democrats. Wie dieser gehört er als Akteur der Finanzwirtschaft zum Umkreis der Wall Street.
