According to Trump, “communism and socialism” are the causes of Latin America’s difficulties
U.S President Donald Trump claimed he "has plans" for Venezuela, as he said in a speech during the Latino Legislative Coalition Summit in Washington. The current U.S. leader did not offer details of his purposes.
The U.S. President affirmed he is “with Venezuela”, as well as blamed the legitimate leader of the Bolivarian Republic, Nicolas Maduro, of causing “misery” for the Venezuelan people. According to Trump, “communism and socialism” are the causes of Latin America’s difficulties, problems that Washington could solve, as the U.S. President expressed.
The Trump administration's approach to Venezuela has been marked by unilateralism, lack of dialogue and disregard for the legitimacy of the current Caracas government. Since his self-proclamation as president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó has had the support of the U.S. President, with whom he held a meeting at the White House and shared space in his annual guest speech last Feb.
Washington maintains a crude economic blockade against the government and people of Venezuela, as well as sanctions against its most important institutions and economic actors, as is the case of the Conviasa Airline, the most important of that nation.
Other measures include limitations on the Russian oil company Rosneft because of its relations with the South American country.
Venezuela, for its part, described these expressions as interferences and stated that Trump offends and disrespects the Venezuelan people. Jorge Arreaza, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, announced an international lawsuit against because of the perjuries caused to national companies.
