Rubio: U.S. Should Not Recognize Maduro's Illegal Venezuela Power Grab

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "The U.S. should not recognize the Maduro regime's fraudulent Constituent Assembly, established against the will of the Venezuelan people and contrary to Venezuela's constitution," said U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL). "Two weeks ago, millions of Venezuelans made their voices heard when they voted to reject today's vote, which is only a desperate and illegitimate power grab by Maduro."

I am confident that President Trump will respond swiftly and decisively. I encourage him to expand sanctions on individuals who have committed or supported the violation of human rights and the democratic order. Furthermore, I urge him to impose economic sanctions on the Maduro regime that will not harm the people of Venezuela but will deprive the Maduro regime of the resources they need to remain in power.

We stand in solidarity with the people of Venezuela and their struggle for freedom and democracy. It is critical, now more than ever, that we continue to be vocal and support the Venezuelan people and assist them as best we can in reclaiming their representative democracy, their inalienable rights and, at a most fundamental level, their sense of dignity and justice.
