US Vice President Michael Pence said at the annual international conference of the countries of North and South America that the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is the greatest threat to peace and stability in the Western Hemisphere. The recording of his speech was published by the White House.
Pence stated that Maduro is “a dictator who has no legitimate right to power,” who must resign. The vice president added that the average Venezuelan lost more than nine kilograms in the six years of Maduro’s rule due to poor nutrition.
For Latin America, a new day is coming. Throughout the Western Hemisphere, socialism is dying, and freedom and prosperity, as well as democracy, are being revived before our eyes.
Today, the largest source of destabilization, the single largest violator of peace and prosperity in the Western Hemisphere is the Nicholas Maduro regime in Venezuela.
