Mucarsel-Powell Condemns Trump’s Willingness to Meet with Venezuelan Dictator Maduro
Washington, June 22, 2020
MIAMI, FL – Today,U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (FL-26), the first Member of Congress born in South America, released the following statement regarding reports that President Trump is willing to meet with dictator Nicolás Maduro.
“The news that President Trump is willing to abandon Venezuelans yearning for democracy exemplifies his incoherent and inconsistent foreign policy toward Maduro’s narco-regime,” said Mucarsel-Powell. “Taking a meeting with Nicolás Maduro, who was just indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for narco-terrorism, clearly shows his complete disregard for freedom and democracy and undermines the gains made by the legitimate President of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, to restore democracy. The president’s words and actions are putting in danger the future of Venezuela, and the pattern is clear: Trump stands with dictators and authoritarians and desires to be one.
