Trump is getting high marks from the public for his handling of the Coronavirus crisis, but that is not stopping the left from trying to shift the narrative.
Left wing billionaire George Soros is helping to fund an ad campaign which will target key states and attack Trump on this issue.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
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.

Soros PAC, Big Donor Gave Combined $13,000,000 to Group Launching Anti-Trump Coronavirus Attack Ads
It looks as though the left will exploit any crisis in order to take a shot at President Donald Trump, and they’re being fueled by liberal billionaire cash.
Liberal billionaire George Soros’ Democracy PAC and liberal billionaire Donald Sussman are bankrolling a lefty group launching attack ads against President Donald Trump for his response to the coronavirus pandemic with at least $13,000,000 so far this cycle. Advertising Analytics tweeted March 23 that “@prioritiesUSA is spending on broadcast targeting Trump over #CoronavirusPandemic.” One Priorities USA anti-Trump ad is called “Exponential Threat.”
Sussman leads the pair with $8 million in contributions to Priorities USA Action, the left’s “flagship 2020 super PAC.” Soros’ Democracy PAC contributed $5 million to the group.
The left is desperate to stop Trump’s rising poll numbers.
That’s what this is all about.
