REUTERS – Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday (February 18) saying Trump’s speech was “Nazi-style” and said the U.S. president acted as if he were the owner of Venezuela.
On Monday Trump warned members of Venezuela’s military who remain loyal to Maduro that they are risking their future and their lives and urged them to allow humanitarian aid into the country.
Speaking to a cheering crowd mostly of Venezuelan and Cuban immigrants in Miami, Trump said if the Venezuelan military continues supporting Maduro, “you will find no safe harbour, no easy exit and no way out. You’ll lose everything.”
Trump offered strong backing for Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, whom the United States, many of Venezuela’s neighbours and most Western countries have recognized as interim president of Venezuela. But Maduro, who won a second term last year in an election that critics denounced as a sham, retains the backing of Russia and China and control of Venezuelan state institutions, including the security services.
