Trump Administration Hands a Lifeline to Venezuelan Dictator, Nicolas Maduro
Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo responded to the news of the Trump administration renewing a license for one of Trump's big donors, Chevron, to operate in sanctioned Venezuela:
"Once again Trump has sold out an ally to support a dictator. While the President has pledged support for Guaidó, yesterday the Trump administration turned its back on Democracy in Venezuela and handed a lifeline to Maduro by ignoring US sanctions and renewing Venezuelan operating licenses to the President's corporate donors. If Trump is serious about restoring democracy in Venezuela, he should honor US sanctions and put the people of Venezuela over the profits of his corporate donors."
