The president of the United States, Donald Trump, made reference to the Venezuelan crisis during his speech at the 74th Annual Assembly of the United Nations and held the dictator Maduro responsible for impoverishing the country and allowing himself to be manipulated by the dictatorship of Cuba.
According to a recent report, women in the country wait ten hours to receive food, there are thousands of political detainees, extrajudicial killings are carried out. The dictator Maduro is a Cuban puppet, protected by Cuban bodyguards while the island’s regime takes advantage of oil wealth to stay in power”, said the US president in front of the main stage of the UN General Assembly.
Trump was firm before the other leaders and insisted that Venezuelans “are trapped in this nightmare”. “America is united behind you. We have humanitarian aid ready to deliver, we remain very alert and we look forward to the day when democracy is recovered, when Venezuela is free and freedom reigns throughout this hemisphere”, he said.
The US president ratified the commitment of the United States to “support those peoples of the Western Hemisphere who live under brutal oppression such as the people of Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela.”
