A petition posted on the “We the People” section of the White House website asks the Trump administration to declare leftist billionaire George Soros a domestic terrorist.
The petition has over 110,000 signatures, which passes the threshold to necessitate a response from the White House.
Several petitions that have passed the 100,000-signature threshold during Trump’s presidency are awaiting a response, including one to formally recognize the Antifa movement as a terrorist group which has garnered over 300,000.

“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,” the petition states, through allegedly creating and funding organizations exclusively devoted to facilitating “the collapse of the systems and Constitutional government of the United States”
The 87-year-old Soros “has developed unhealthy and undue influence over the entire Democrat Party and a large portion of the U.S. Federal government,” according to the petitioners, and “the DOJ should immediately declare George Soros and all of his organizations and staff members to be domestic terrorists.”
The petition, posted on Aug. 20, needed to surpass 100,000 signatures within 30 days to trigger an official response.
The “We the People” portal, started by the Obama administration in 2011, enables anyone to log-on to the White House website and post a petition potentially capable of garnering a response.
