President Trump addressed Venezuelan Americans in southern Florida”:

US President Donald Trump gave a speech on Monday at Miami’s Florida International University to a crowd of mostly Venezuelan and Cuban immigrants. The area is home to tens of thousands of Venezuelan expatriates – many of whom fled Mr Maduro and his predecessor, and support for Mr Guaidó there is strong.

During the speech, Mr Trump railed against the Venezuelan government which he described as a “failed dictatorship”. He described President Maduro himself as a “Cuban puppet” and accused a “small handful at the top of Maduro’s regime” of stealing and hiding money. “We know who they are and we know where they keep the billions of dollars they have stolen,” he said. He also implored the military to ensure the safety of Mr Guaidó and opposition protesters.
