In addition, the decree states that “the national political actors with a marked anti-Venezuelan character who have promoted the economic aggression and the intervention against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (are hereby declared to be) traitors to the homeland.”.

Earlier this month, the president of France had offered to mediate the Venezuelan crisis and condemned the violence in the South American country.

According to the Venezuelan government, the French president's statements "constitute a clear interference in the internal affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela".

Venezuela's foreign ministry expressed its "firm rejection of the deplorable comments" by Macron. What about that doesn't, in your mind, qualify as a dictatorship?

Trump has not used all of his plays to get Caracas' actions in line yet. They will worsen the shortages of food and essential medicines.

Maduro has accused the opposition of engaging in an "economic war" in cahoots with the United States. Assembly members also denounced former chief prosecutor Luisa Ortega, a onetime Maduro supporter now in quasi-exile for criticizing government corruption in Venezuela.

The bishops' conference reported in two tweets Aug. 25 that "the headquarters of the Venezuelan Bishops' Conference were the victim of the mob this morning". The opposition saw the move as an overt attempt by Maduro to accumulate power.

Prayer is undoubtedly needed, as is pressure from other Latin American countries. How can the rater be protected from political pressure?

Mr. Trump's critics often accuse him of ignoring advice, talking too much, and misspeaking as a result. Someone on Team Trump may be paying attention to the Atlas Network (formerly known as the Atlas Economic Research Foundation), a string of libertarian think tanks financed by big-buck libertarians, who have specifically targeted Venezuela. "This is red meat for them".
