President Trump delivers a speech to the Venezuelan community in Miami when his administration crashes on Nicolas Madour's regime and insists that every opportunity is on the table to push him down. The Trump administration has already imposed sanctions to push Maduro & # 39; s regime and has recognized Juan Guaidó, the National Assembly President as Venezuela's temporary president.
Last week, in a meeting with Colombian President Iván Duque in the White House, the president said he was looking at "every opportunity" to deal with the crisis in Venezuela, which shares a border with Colombia. Guaidó and Maduro are locked in control of Venezuela, an oil-rich country whose economy has crumbled in recent years.
Last month, National Security Adviser John Bolton stood in front of the White House press corps with a legal pad saying "5,000 troops to Colombia", a note white house fell to clarify outside the President's remarks that all options are on the table.
The President's speech is scheduled for kl. 1
Here are the highlights of Trump's prepared speech
Here are some of the highlights of the White House press secretary Sarah Sanders ahead of the President's address:
- Strong support for Interim President Juan Guaidó;
- The current road to democracy is irreversible – Venezuelan military officials have a clear choice – work toward democracy for their future and the future of their family, or they will lose everything they have
- The United States knows where military officials and their families has money saved anywhere in the world. Military and security forces should listen to Guaidó and allow humanitarian aid to Venezuela
- Venezuela should not be a puppet state in Cuba
- The successful peaceful transition to democracy in Venezuela will help promote democracy in Nicaragua and Cuba.  Trump to urge Maduro to leave power
Mr. Trump's speech will urge Maduro to formally leave power in Venezuela to Guaido, seniors in white houses tell CBS News & # 39; Fin Gomez.
The president will also discuss aid efforts in Venezuela and elaborate on how the Maduro regime is damaging the Venezuelan people. Mr. Trump has used Venezuela as an example of what in the administration's view happens when a country turns to socialism. The president and his allies have pointed to Venezuela as what could happen if a liberal democrat wins the White House by 2020.
