Trump speaks out against socialism

2019-02-19 03:51
By supporting a peaceful regime change in Venezuela the United States has paved the way toward purging South America of socialism and creating the first fully-democratic Western Hemisphere in human history, President Donald Trump said in a speech in Florida on Feb. 18. Trump, a fervent critic of socialism and communism, told the Venezuelan community in Florida that recent changes in South and Central America suggest that the path toward democracy on the two continents is irreversible. The president pledged the support of the United States to Venezuelans who “are standing for freedom and Democracy.” “We’re here to proclaim a new day is coming in Latin America,” Trump said. “In Venezuela and across the Western Hemisphere socialism is dying and liberty, prosperity, and Democracy are being reborn.” The president reiterated his support for Venezuela’s interim President Juan Guaidó. Trump was the first world leader to recognize Guaidó as the legitimate leader of the South American nation. Guaidó assumed the position of interim president shortly after the Venezuelan National Assembly declared socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro as “illegitimate.”
