Trump assures Venezuelans that the United States is with them in front of the “dictator Maduro”

September 24, 2019


The US president, Donald Trump, has reiterated his support for Venezuelans on Tuesday against the “dictator” Nicolás Maduro, while having lashed out at socialism, stressing that “the United States will never be a socialist country.”

During his speech to the UN General Assembly, Trump has referred to the “brutal oppression” they face in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, although he has focused his message on the situation in the latter country whose president has accused of being “a puppet of Cuba.”

“All America is with you,” he has assured the “Venezuelans trapped in this nightmare,” stating that the United States has ready humanitarian aid to make it arrive in the country and that 55 countries already support the “legitimate government” of Juan Guaidó. “We follow the situation closely and look forward to the day when democracy will be restored” in Venezuela, he added.

On the other hand, he has lashed out firmly against socialism, “destroyer of societies.” According to the president, both socialism and communism have nothing to do with justice, equality and good for the citizens who advocate: “They only have to do as one thing power for the ruling class.”

Thus, he has stated firmly that “the United States will never be a socialist country.”

The Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, has responded on Twitter to Trump's speech, accusing him of pouring “inadmissible accusations” on Cuba and Venzuela. “The use of lies characterizes its management,” Rodriguez criticized in his message.

The head of Cuban diplomacy has assured that Trump “speaks like an emperor” while “trying to distract the world” from his internal problems, in particular calls to initiate a political trial in Congress. He has also labeled him “bored” and has said that “he does not compete with Greta Thunberg”, referring to the young Swedish activist.
