Trump urges Venezuelan military to abandon Nicolas Maduro or 'lose everything'
Updated : February 19, 2019 09:26 AM IST
Speaking to a cheering crowd mostly of Venezuelan and Cuban immigrants in Miami, Trump said if the Venezuelan military continues supporting Maduro, "you will find no safe harbour, no easy exit and no way out. You’ll lose everything.”
Maduro retaliated late on Monday that Trump's speech was "Nazi-style" and said he acted as if he were the owner of Venezuela and its citizens his slaves.
Trump cautioned Venezuelan armed forces not to harm Guaido or other opposition politicians, urged them to accept the National Assembly leader's offer of amnesty and demanded that they allow in food, medicine and other supplies.
