The President of the United States, Donald Trump, commemorated Venezuela’s Independence Day by reaffirming his solidarity with the Venezuelan people.
Trump recalled that Venezuela is in a political, economic and social crisis due to the usurpation maintained by Nicolas Maduro’s regime.
“The Venezuelan people are suffering under an illegitimate and tyrannical regime that is trying to destroy democratic institutions, abuse human rights, engage in rampant corruption and exploit the worst economic and humanitarian crisis in recent history,” reads the White House statement.
Likewise, the U.S. president explained that his government maintains the hopes of Venezuelans and emphasized that thanks to the “perseverance and courage” of Venezuelans, the true independence of the nation will be achieved.
Trump reminded that his government will always be against the political ideas of the left.
“My administration will always be against socialism,” he emphasized.
