Trump delivers remarks on Venezuela in Miami

The US leveled its most significant financial sanctions against Venezuela late last month, targeting the country's state-owned oil company in a bid to tighten the vise around Maduro's regime.

The development follows Venezuelan self-proclaimed president Guaido warning the country's military not to block humanitarian aid from entering Venezuela.

Amid growing tensions in Venezuela over the future of the country's leadership, President Donald Trump will speak in South Florida to lobby support for National Assembly President Juan Guaido, who the us has recognized as the nation's leader despite current President Nicolas Maduro's claim to the throne.

As the monthslong political crisis continues, Trump is to make a public case to Venezuela's military, which could play a decisive role in the stalemate, to support Guaido's government. ICRS was echoed by United Nations spokesman Stephen Dujarric who said earlier this month that humanitarian action related to Venezuela should be independent of political or military goals.

Sanders said Trump would warn the Venezuelan armed forces that they "have a clear choice: work toward democracy for their future and the future of their families, or they will lose everything they have". The shipments have been meant in part to dramatize hyperinflation and shortages of food and medicine gripping Venezuela.


While Trump has refused to rule out a USA military intervention in Venezuela, Congressman Eliot Engel, the Democratic chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said during a congressional hearing last week that lawmakers would not support such a move.

"Venezuela is preparing for the humanitarian avalanche", Mr Guaido told about 4,000 supporters clad in white T-shirts and green scarves who gathered Saturday to sign up as volunteers.

The president is to deliver remarks at Florida International University in Miami.

Critics say Maduro's re-election a year ago was fraudulent. The position, in large part, is due to US sanctions against state-owned oil giant Petroleos de Venezuela SA. Trump is also looking to draw a contrast with the policies of progressive Democrats, which he brands as "socialist", as he gears up for the 2020 election.
