Accuracy in Media

CARACAS – The everyday fight for electricity, water, food, safety and most importantly democracy, all began in early 2019 when Interim President Juan Guaido beat socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro. Like any dictator, Maduro refused to leave his position of power.

Ever since January, citizens have been subjected to violent protests, lack of proper health care and a military coup under Maduro’s regime who refuses to step down from power.   

NBC News tweeted a video showing a heavy duty military vehicle slamming into anti-Maduro protesters, injuring many and killing some.

As Guaido continues to stand by his supporters and speak out in the streets all throughout Venezuela, Maduro continues to attack his own people with force.

Just yesterday, the latest report read that the head of Venezuela’s secret police broke ties with Maduro. The socialist dictator took to airwaves proclaiming the uprising began because of Juan Guaido whom had been defeated. After spreading propaganda to the public, he also stated his “regime had responded to the rebellion with ‘nerves of steel, maximum serenity and effective action.’”

As the citizens of Venezuela continue to fight for their life and democracy each and every day, America is continuing to stand with them during this difficult transition of power.

In a series of tweets sent out and speeches given by elected and appointed officials, the main message stands: America will continue to monitor and fully support the Venezuelan people as they fight for peaceful democracy.

Trump went as far as calling on Cuban troops and militia to cease military actions and operations in Venezuela. If they did not his second tweet threatened a “full and complete embargo, together with highest-level sanctions” that would be placed on the foreign land for remaining involved any longer.
