US President, Donald Trump has announced that the US is in support of the Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president after protests against President Nicolás Maduro.
Venezuela’s president broke diplomatic ties with the US after Trump’s recognition of Juan Guaidó as interim president.
He made the announcement after 35-year-old Juan Guaidó called himself an acting leader in Caracas. Venezuela’s president broke diplomatic relations with the US after Trump’s recognition of opposition leader.
Many South American nations like Brazil, Colombia, and Peru also accepted opposition leader as Venezuela’s president.
The country is also experiencing mass demonstrations against President Nicolás Maduro over years of economic fall.
The main driving force which further led to driven out of people from Venezuela includes hyperinflation, power cuts and lacks of basic items.
Mr. Maduro holds the office for a second term this month with widespread rumors of vote-rigging. Mr. Trump’s recognition forced Mr. Maduro to end diplomatic ties with the US and he gave US diplomatic man 72 hours deadline to leave the country.
He also blamed Washington of interfering to rule Venezuela from far. He further said in an address that we’ve had sufficient “interventionism, here we have dignity, damn it!”.
Some protests also held in support of Mr. Maduro on a much smaller scale. Earlier, Mr. Guaidó said in Caracas the protests will remain “until Venezuela is liberated”. He further swears to “formally assume the national executive powers as acting president”.
