Donald Trump has announced that Elliott Abrams, a man who supported the use of death squads in Latin America (Iran-Contras), will lead the US’s efforts to “press for democracy” in Venezuela.
Senator Marco Rubio, the most active congressist pushing for “regime change” in Venezuela showed his satisfaction for the appointment in his twitter account.
The naming of Elliot Abrams as Special Envoy on Venezuela is great news. He is an tough & experienced foreign policy expert with a long history of supporting democracy, liberty & the national interest of the United States.
