Trump: U.S. will never be socialist like Venezuela
ABOVE VIDEO: President Trump spoke in Miami about the political crisis unfolding in Venezuela. CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett joins “Red and Blue” to break down Mr. Trump’s message for Venezuela’s socialist leader Nicolas Maduro.
(CBS NEWS) – President Trump urged Nicolas Maduro’s military regime in Venezuela to allow humanitarian aid into the country and reiterated that all options are on the table in a speech that hit home both his international and domestic agenda.
Mr. Trump, speaking at Florida International University, told Venezuelans that the United States stands with them — but that those in Maduro’s regime who oppose freedom will find no “safe harbor.” The address is the president’s most dramatic public step yet in opposing Maduro and supporting Juan Guaidó, the speaker of the National Assembly, as Venezuela’s interim president.
“We seek a peaceful transition of power, but all options are open,” Mr. Trump said to a supportive crowd.
While the president didn’t directly mention any progressive Democrats in Congress or running for president in 2020, his emphasis that the U.S. will never be a socialist nation made his domestic part of the speech clear.
