Trump calls socialist Maduro ‘a Cuban puppet’

President Trump called ousted Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro a “Cuban puppet” while condemning socialism in a speech aimed at Venezuelan-Americans in Miami Monday.

“Millions of Venezuelans are starving and suffering while a small handful at the top of the Maduro regime plunder the nation into poverty and into debt. We know who they are, and we know where they keep the billions of dollars that they have stolen,” Trump said.

“There are members of the Venezuelan military still barely supporting this failed dictatorship. They are risking their future. They are risking their lives, and Venezuela’s future, for a man controlled by the Cuban military and protected by a private army of Cuban soldiers,” Trump said. “Maduro is not a Venezuelan patriot. He’s a Cuban puppet.”

Trump said those at the rally know too well the “horrors” of socialism, but promised a new day for socialist Latin American countries, including Cuba.
