President Donald Trump has just confirmed that he has something up his sleeve with regard to Venezuela.
“Something will be happening with Venezuela,” Trump said in a recent interview with Noticias Telemundo, according to Breitbart. The president added that the U.S. will “be very much involved” in it.
Time to get “involved”
The turmoil in Venezuela started dominating headlines around the globe well before the COVID-19 pandemic. The South American nation has been decimated in recent years by rogue leadership — and apparently, President Donald Trump thinks it’s time to intervene.
According to Breitbart, Trump promised in his interview with Noticias Telemundo that the U.S. will “take care of the people of Venezuela.”
It all comes after an election in Venezuela that resulted in countrywide protests. The man the people of the country clearly wanted in office — Juan Guaido — has been in a fight ever since with President Nicolas Maduro, who technically won re-election in a hotly contested race, according to the BBC.
For President Trump, this is simply unacceptable — and he’s prepared to fight back. In fact, according to the BBC, the U.S. has already recognized Guaido as the country’s “legitimate president,” in addition to dozens of other countries.
“It’s freedom for their people. It’s freedom,” Trump said in his interview, according to Breitbart.
“Venezuela was a rich country 15 years ago, and it’s been destroyed by two people, but a system, a horrible system,” the president added. “And something will happen with Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you. Something will be happening with Venezuela.”
Freedom for Venezuela
Were it not for COVID-19, the situation in Venezuela would have more than likely already been addressed by the president. But everything got put on the backburner when cases of the coronavirus broke out in the U.S.
Now, with case numbers dying down, the country has the attention of President Donald Trump.
The president has been adamant, however, that he is not looking to push a regime change simply because the U.S. government is not happy with Venezuelan leadership.
Instead, according to Breitbart, Trump said that he will back whoever the people of Venezuela support. It’s the true democratic way.
