Is the US Going to War with Venezuela During the Covid Pandemic guest Will Porter

by | Apr 6, 2020

Will Porter returns to FPF to discuss the aggressive actions Trump has taken towards Venezuela in recent weeks. The US indicted Maduro then offered a $15 million reward for his arrest. Similar actions were taken in 1989 before the US military invaded Panama and captured the country’s leader. The US has offered a “new” proposal to drop sanctions once Venezuela’s president Maduro resigns. However, Maduro will not step down and turn the country over to his opposition as the US demands. Now, in the name of fighting the drug war, Trump deployed several warships and anti-drug ships off of Venezuela’s coast.
