NO TE LO PIERDAS: Demócratas en Florida critican a Trump por sus promesas incumplidas sobre Venezuela y su disposición a reunirse con Maduro

Posted

En respuesta a una entrevista de Axios con Donald Trump, durante la cual expresó estar dispuesto a reunirse con Nicolás Maduro, los demócratas de Florida criticaron dichas declaraciones y el hecho de que Trump le dé la espalda al pueblo venezolano oprimido por el régimen de Maduro. Esta noticia llega después de que el Washington Post reportara la semana pasada que el ex-asesor de seguridad nacional John Bolton alegó que Trump había cambiado de parecer sobre Venezuela, llamando al presidente interino de Venezuela Juan Guaidó un ‘niño’ y que sólo está apoyando a Guaidó como una estrategia retórica para ganar en la Florida, donde viven 400.000 venezolanos.

Florida Politics: Florida Democrats bash Donald Trump for extending olive branch to Nicolás Maduro
Still, Trump’s comments to Axios prompted the Florida Democratic Party and multiple South Florida Democrats to bash those remarks. South Florida is home to many refugees and descendants of those who have escaped socialist countries in Latin America.
“As Venezuelans like myself watch Maduro increasingly cling to power because of Donald Trump’s erratic and failed strategy, we are concerned that Trump’s actions are weakening Juan Guaidó and pushing away our allies in the region who are working to restore democracy in Venezuela,” said Luisana Pérez Fernández, an FDP spokeswoman.

Politico: Trump's Maduro comments create political mess in must-win Florida
The mere flirtation with diplomatic talks with Maduro could hurt Trump’s standing in the nation’s largest swing state, which he needs to win in November in order to return to the White House for a second term. It also has big down-ticket implications as Republicans try to flip a vulnerable Miami congressional seat and fend off Democrats' attempt to win seats in the region that could inch them close to taking control of the Florida Senate for the first time in nearly two decades.

But the coming ad campaign is the latest evidence that Democrats believe Trump damaged his reelection hopes in must-win Florida with his comments. The Florida Democratic Party and Biden campaign have hosted and planned multiple calls with members of Congress and Venezuelan activists around Trump’s interest in a possible meeting with Maduro, and Democratic candidates in South Florida have begun to attack Republican opponents who have refrained from criticizing the president.
