Donald Trump to Meet with Venezuela's Juan Guaido, Confirms White House

Donald Trump to Meet with Venezuela's Juan Guaido, Confirms White House”

President Donald Trump welcomed Venezuelan President Juan Guaido to Tuesday night's State of the Union address.

The White House had said earlier Wednesday that the news media would be allowed into the top of the Oval Office visit, but it abruptly shifted course and barred reporters.

While Trump's acquittal had been widely expected, he was deprived of a complete party-line vote when Republican Senator Mitt Romney revealed he would vote to convict the president. Guaido sported a red tie, just like Trump.

The White House said Guaido's visit was an "opportunity to reaffirm the commitment of the United States to the people of Venezuela". On behalf of millions of Venezuelans who continue to stand and fight: "Thank you, people of the USA", Guaido tweeted.

Simonovis, Venezuela's most famous SWAT cop, escaped a year ago and was brought to the United States, His detention has been a rallying cry of the opposition that considered Maduro's 2018 election a fraud and blamed his socialist policies for the nation's crisis, which is driving mass migration and threatening the region's stability.

In January 2018, the Venezuelan National Assembly appointed Guaido as the president when Maduro refused to leave power after the fraudulent 2017 election in Venezuela. He calls Guaido a US puppet seeking to oust him in a coup. Maduro is an illegitimate ruler, a tyrant who brutalizes his people.

The Trump administration was the first among a coalition of governments to recognize Guiado as president. More than 50 countries, including the USA, now recognize Guaido as the South American country's rightful leader.

A separate government statement hit out at Guaido, denouncing the "shameful complicity of those dedicated to selling their homeland for humiliating crumbs tossed to them by their boss, Mr Trump".

Guaidó was showered with applause when introduced.

But Guaido enjoyed a mostly bipartisan welcome.
