President Donald Trump slammed protesters opposed to Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Friday, accusing the women who confronted Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of being paid by billionaire liberal activist George Soros.

The Daily Beast, Think Progress, and others accused Trump of peddling a conspiracy and expressed disbelief that the anti-Kavanaugh protesters might have been paid by Soros.


One of the two protesters who confronted Flake in the elevator is Ana Maria Archila, an executive director of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD). The other protester, Maria Gallagher, is an activist with the group. The CPD is indeed heavily funded by George Soros through the Open Society Foundation.

The Center for Popular Democracy’s homepage features an image of Archila and Gallagher yelling at Flake and urges supporters to “join” Archila.

During an interview on MSNBC Friday, Archila confirmed that she works for CPD and did not deny Trump’s characterization of her efforts.

When MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson asked Archila if she's "a paid professional," Archila said, "I work for a community organization, I work for a network of community organizations" adding that it is her "job" to galvanize like-minded activists.

"If the president wants to know whether I work for a social justice organization, the answer is yes. And I’ve worked for a social justice organization since I was 23. That’s not news," she stressed.
