Trump tells Latino voters U.S. could become "the next Venezuela"
CA, 26 Sep 2020
U.S. President Donald Trump spoke to Latino voters on Friday in the battleground state of Florida, with hopes of securing votes ahead of the November presidential election.
The Trump administration has ramped up sanctions against Venezuela in the past two years as part of an effort to oust President Nicolas Maduro, who it accuses of corruption, human rights violations and rigging his 2018 re-election.
"Biden met with [Nicolas] Maduro and it was all lovey dovey and nothing happened and I imposed the toughest sanctions ever imposed Latin America," Trump told the "Latinos for Trump" event.
Trump also told the audience in that the U.S. could become the next Venezuela on "major steroids" if "you put the wrong people in office."
Maduro has overseen a six-year economic collapse in the once-prosperous Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) nation, which the opposition and most economists attribute to Venezuela's interventionist economic policies. Venezuela's ruling socialist party blames the U.S. sanctions for the country's woes.
A woman on the panel told Trump she thought he was deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize and the audience gave him a standing ovation.
