Trump is using OUR TAX DOLLARS to fund Venezuela’s opposition politicians!

When you hear news about Venezuela, remember that Venezuela has a lot of oil — and that its democracy is constitutionally legitimate.

Trump keeps trying to overthrow Venezuela’s democracy.  Do not let Trump overthrow Venezuela’s government.

People who care about peace and democracy should be outraged by yet one more abuse by Trump that was reported in mid-October 2019.

Trump is using OUR TAX DOLLARS to fund Venezuela’s opposition politicians!

On October 17, 2019, CodePink ( reported this:

“Our taxpayer money is being used to pay the salaries of Venezuelan politicians! USAID (the United States Agency for International Development) announced that it will divert $41.9 million in aid funds allocated to Central America and instead send it to the Venezuelan opposition in order “to pay for their salaries, airfare, ‘good governance’ training, propaganda, technical assistance for holding elections and other ‘democracy-building’ projects.” That’s right, opposition leader Juan Guaidó’s cronies, including his U.S. representative Carlos Vecchio (a former Exxon lawyer), are now making money off the backs of hard-working Americans.”



Also, we need to tell CONSERVATIVE Americans who oppose “Big Government” wasting our tax dollars that Trump is wasting our tax dollars with his “Big Government” scheme of funding politicians, etc., in Venezuela.
