Billionaire Democrat, Tom Steyer to oust Trump, Republicans

Steyer, a Democratic mega-donor and environmental activist, announced Monday the launch of the most extensive youth-organizing program in American history, with a commitment to spend $30 million in at least ten states, including Florida, this fall ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

Steyer, who has repeatedly flirted with running for office in California, was weighing a challenge against Sen.

"My fight is in removing Donald Trump from office and from power", Steyer added, his comments coming amid rumblings that he would pursue a political bid of his own.

Many observers predicted that Steyer would run either for governor of California in 2018 or for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Dianne Feinstein (D), but in a Monday interview, Steyer said, "I'm not going to run for anything".

Steyer said he now aims to expand the impeachment campaign into a vehicle for "an unprecedented engagement effort" with young American voters in order to help bring about a wave election in November that ousts dozens of Republicans from office.

"I am willing to do whatever it takes to help save our country", Steyer said. "This tide will wash away the stain of the Trump administration".

The Republican National Committee dismissed Steyer's spending saying he could "light as much of his money on fire as wants", arguing that Democrats have criticized his impeachment message as a distraction.

Steyer brushed off that concern, but said impeachment will not be a litmus test for which candidates he and his groups will support in 2018. "We believe this is a false choice - the fact is the two are fundamentally intertwined".
