Donald Trump’s coup attempt in Venezuela

This 31 January 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

Is the US Meddling in Venezuela? Max Blumenthal Asks US Congress Members.

Amidst Russiagate fever, the Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal heads to Capitol Hill to ask members of Congress if they think the US is meddling in Venezuela‘s political system. The Trump administration had recently recognized the president of the country’s National Assembly as interim president of the nation and intensified sanctions on the country.

This 2 February 2019 video says about itself:

The Yankee Plot to Overthrow Nicolás Maduro and Steal Venezuela’s Oil

The Trump administration is openly engaging in a blatant effort to overthrow the government of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela. It’s a campaign aimed at regime change, and it’s being publicly promoted as an opportunity to steal Venezuelan oil for the benefit of U.S. corporations. They’re not even pretending.

But this is not some insane Twitter thought spewed by Trump after guzzling down gallons of Fox and Friends. It’s open imperialism, and it’s not just being embraced by powerful Republicans, but Democrats as well.

This push for regime change in Venezuela did not appear in a vacuum. The CIA has been plotting with so-called rebels in Venezuela from the early days of the Trump administration. As Donald Trump has cozied up to strongmen and dictators across the world — from Vladimir Putin to Mohammed bin Salman, Rodrigo Duterte, Kim Jong-un, el-Sisi of Egypt — it seems that he’s found one so-called strongman that he can’t tolerate. And that leader happens to have the largest reserves of oil of any country in the world.
