Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro said Caracas is breaking off diplomatic relations with the US, giving American diplomats 72 hours to leave the country, after non-meddling Donald Trump recognized the opposition leader as “interim head”. Lucky for Pelosi, Trump could have accidentally appointed her!
Maduro announced the move to a large crowd of cheering supporters from a balcony of the presidential Miraflores Palace in Caracas, shortly after the US, and then several Washington controlled Latin American countries, decided to recognize the opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president.
US President Donald Trump earlier sided with State Department backed Guaido, who on Wednesday proclaimed himself the country’s acting head, “officially” recognizing him as such. Maduro’s government, in its turn, was described by Trump as an “illegitimate regime.”
This was the 7th unsuccessful coup in Venezuela initiated by the US – three more and Maduro gets a free coffee?
