Pence Issues Warning to Maduro
Article from The Daily Wire by Jacob Airey.
Speaking at a Venezuela solidarity event in Doral, Florida, Vice President Mike Pence affirmed the United States’ opposition to Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, promising support for Juan Guaidó, “the only legitimate President of Venezuela.”
He warned on Friday, “Nicolas Maduro would do well not to test the resolve of the United States of America.”
“Venezuela is a failed state, and failed states know no boundaries, have no borders. A Venezuela overrun with drug smugglers, gangs, human traffickers is a danger to all people and all nations in this hemisphere,” Pence said. “And so we stand. We stand for freedom and security for the Venezuelan people. We stand for the security of both our nations. And I promise you, the United States will continue to stand with the Venezuelan people, and we will continue to stand up to their oppressors.”
He added: “To that end, the United States will continue to exert all diplomatic and economic pressure to bring about a peaceful transition to democracy. But those looking on should know this: All options are on the table.”
