Trump Attacks President Maduro at Miami Rally, Calls on Military to Defect

HeadlineFeb 19, 2019

President Trump held a rally in Miami, Florida, Monday, where he addressed members of the local Venezuelan community, reinforcing his support for opposition leader and self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaidó, and calling for the military to defect from the leadership of sitting Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.

President Donald Trump: “If you choose this path, you have the opportunity to help forge a safe and prosperous future for all of the people of Venezuela. Or you can choose the second path, continuing to support Maduro. If you choose this path, you will find no safe harbor, no easy exit and no way out. You will lose everything.”

Trump also renewed attacks on socialism, saying it had “ravaged” Venezuela and that it “will never happen to us.”
