The United States House of Representatives cheers Juan Guaido as “legitimate president” of Venezuela

The United States House of Representatives, with Democrat Nancy Pelosi standing and smiling, welcomed Juan Guaidó with a standing ovation as “legitimate president of Venezuela”, when he was presented at the Capitol by Donald Trump, during the third speech on the State of the Union.

“Mr. President, please take this message with you to your homeland: All Americans are united with the Venezuelan people in their fair struggle for freedom,” Trump told senators and congressmen.

Guaidó was in the guest box of the White House, where there was also the first lady, Melania Trump, and upon hearing Trump stood up and greeted the president and the 535 members of both houses of Congress.

“The United States is leading a diplomatic coalition of 59 countries against the socialist dictator of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro,” Trump said.

“Maduro is an illegitimate leader, a tyrant who brutally treats his people. But his tyranny mandate will be crushed and broken, ”he said.
Trump defined Guaidó as “a man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans.”

Socialism destroys nations. But remember: always, freedom unites souls, ”he said.

Trump also recalled that his Government has revoked part of “the failed policies of the previous administration on Cuba.”

“We are supporting the hopes of Cubans, Nicaraguans and Venezuelans to restore democracy,” he said.

The proximity of the November 3 presidential elections, in which Trump will seek a second term, has increased his attention to Venezuela and Cuba to retain the favor of Americans of Cuban or Venezuelan origin in the key state of Florida.

The United States was the first country to recognize Guaidó, head of the Venezuelan National Assembly (AN, Parliament), as the interim president of Venezuela after the opposition leader was proclaimed on January 23, 2019 president in charge of that country after invoking the Constitution.
