The U.S. Foreign Office for Venezuela stated that the administration of President Donald Trump continues its unwavering support for Juan Guaidó as President-in-Charge of Venezuela and for the legitimate National Assembly.
“The United States continues to call for a swift and peaceful end to the illegitimate regime of Nicolas Maduro so that the people of Venezuela can return to a prosperous and transparent democracy,” the statement said.
The United States was the first country to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela and the struggle for freedom, human rights and the restoration of democracy in the country.
“As evidenced by President Trump’s invitation to Acting President Guaidó for the State of the Union Address 2020 event, our political stance on Venezuela remains unchanged,” he said.
The U.S. Foreign Office assured that President Trump has refused to meet with Maduro on numerous occasions, however, the president has assured that the only meeting he intends to hold with the usurper is to discuss his exit from power.
“The maximum pressure campaign of the United States government to dissuade all activities that benefit Maduro’s illegitimate regime will last until his criminal control over Venezuela is over,” he said.
