Several dozens of Macedonian Americans gathered in front of the Trump Tower on Sunday to protest against the way in which the previous Obama administration was funding programs by the George Soros led Foundation Open Society, and his, as they said, destructive policies toward Macedonia.

“Dear President Trump. We, the Americans with Macedonian heritage, congratulate you on your election. Our native country Macedonia needs your help. We ask you to protect Macedonia and Macedonian democracy from the Soros Foundation (FOSIM). Using US taxpayers money supplied through the US Embassy in Skopje, FOSIM openly supports radical and often violent Soros activists. Under the outgoing US administration, the Soros foundation was selected by the US Embassy as the main implementer of USAID and US Government projects in Macedonia. The Soros Foundation and Open Society Institute are notoriously disruptive and seek to impose the radical policies of their multi-billionaire founder on new democracies. The result has been political violence against Macedonian police and ugly, violent riots in many Macedonian towns”, participants in the rally said.

The reason for the protests are the media and civil society development programs which are supported by USAID Macedonia, a large
number of which were subcontracted through the Soros Foundation in Macedonia, often to the tune of millions of dollars per project. The
group of Macedonians gathered in front of Trump Tower said that the Soros Foundation in Macedonia coordinates its activities with
political parties, helped cause a major political crisis in the country and organized violent protests in which dozens of officers were injured at a time when the police was needed to protect the southern border during the peak of the migrant crisis.

“We are standing here to support the Macedonian independence, NATO membership and territorial integrity of the Republic of Macedonia,
including the strong friendship with the United States of America. Thank you President Trump. God bless Macedonia and God bless the
United States of America”, the letter concludes.
