Trump gave a big speech on Venezuela today, something that probably won’t be covered much in the media. Because he not only attacked Maduro and praised the Venezuelan people, he also attacked socialism.
After that he took to twitter to call Maduro out and tell him to give up power and restore freedom and democracy in his country:
We are here to proclaim that a new day is coming in Latin America. In Venezuela and across the Western Hemisphere, Socialism is DYING - and liberty, prosperity, and democracy are being REBORN...https://t.co/hPL5W48Pmg— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019
The people of Venezuela are standing for FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY – and the United States of America is standing right by their side!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019
Trump even paraphrased Moses from the time he was leading God’s people out of Egypt:
I ask every member of the Maduro regime: End this nightmare of poverty, hunger and death. LET YOUR PEOPLE GO. Set your country free! Now is the time for all Venezuelan Patriots to act together, as one united people. Nothing could be better for the future of Venezuela!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019
Here’s a great quote from Trump today on socialism during the speech:
Trump: "Socialism is not about justice, it's not about equality, it's not about lifting up the poor…it's about 1 thing only: power for the ruling class"
"The more power they get, the more they crave. They want to run healthcare, transportation, finance, energy, education" pic.twitter.com/geruKwiG9J

And this one:
.@realDonaldTrump, speaking to Venezuelan community in Miami:
“And to those who would try to impose socialism on the United States, we again deliver a very simple message: ‘America will never be a socialist country!’” pic.twitter.com/GNvukc8KCp

After eight years of Obama, hearing Trump say this is like music to my ears. Socialism needs to die.
Unfortunately too many Democrats in our country want us to go down the same road of Venezuela, and that’s why Trump’s speech won’t get much coverage in the media.
