Shalala Denounces President Trump’s Openness to Meeting with Nicolas Maduro

MIAMI, FL – Congresswoman Donna Shalala (FL-27) issued the following statement in response to reporting that President Trump expressed a willingness to meet with Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro: “The recent reports confirm what many have suspected for some time – President Trump has been charmed by the authoritarianism of Nicolas Maduro. The president’s admiration of the ruthless Maduro regime and its band of thugs is now one the greatest obstacles to restoring freedom to the long-suffering people of Venezuela. This is a sad day for the Venezuelan people, democracy, and America’s leadership in the world. “I continue to stand with President Juan Guaidó and will continue to work alongside the people of Venezuela as they seek to peacefully restore democracy.” ### MIL OSI USA News
