Venezuelan President Juan Guaidó ended his international tour in Miami, seeking more forceful action against Maduro’s dictatorship and joined Democratic and Republican congressmen during their meeting with the Venezuelan diaspora.
During his meeting in Miami, the Head of State achieved something unusual in American politics: he brought together in a rally Democratic and Republican politicians, who despite political differences, expressed their desire to recover freedom and democracy in Venezuela.
Guaidó brought together on the same stage those who are political adversaries in the U.S. Congress, such as Democratic Congressmen Dona Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell or Debbie Wasserman Schultz with Republicans such as Congressman Mario Díaz-Balart or Senator Rick Scott. Who left behind their political differences to support who is also president of the National Assembly, and thousands of Venezuelans who live in Florida and work for political change in the country.
“You have a very important role while we achieve a future in freedom, and that is to mobilize to support President Juan Guaidó,” said Congresswoman Mucarse-Powell.
The president made important alliances with political figures from Donald Trump’s administration through meetings and encounters during his tour, such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had a long talk with the president in charge at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and his meeting with President Trump’s special advisor Ivanka Trump during his visit to Europe.
Influential Senator Marco Rubio held a meeting with Guaidó, as did the U.S. diplomatic chargé d’affaires for Venezuela, James Story, who reiterated the Trump administration’s support for the Venezuelan National Assembly in the face of repeated aggressions by Maduro’s regime.
