President Trump slammed Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro and the very political system his country is based on for being a failure to the people of Venezuela.
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” he said in front of the United Nations General Assembly, which was greeted with a long pause and then some applause.
“From the Soviet Union to Cuba, Venezuela — wherever through socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish, devastation, and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime.”
