To support the dialogue between the Venezuelan government and the opposition and to lift the “economic sanctions”, asked US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to the president of that country, Donald Trump.
“Trump’s new sanctions against Venezuela are nothing more than an economic sabotage designed to force regime change by starving the very people we are claiming to help,” said the representative of the Democratic Party on her Twitter account @IlhanMN.
Trump’s new sanctions on Venezuela are nothing more than economic sabotage designed to force regime change by starving the very people we claim to be helping. We must lift these, & other sanctions impacting Venezuela’s poor, & support dialogue between the opposition & government. https://t.co/hjOUseW1B6

Omar’s statements came to light after the national security adviser in Washington, Jhon Bolton, threatened military intervention against Venezuela.
“We have to ask ourselves if Trump and [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo are so concerned about human rights and democracy in Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, why do they actively support horrible regimes in Brazil, Guatemala and Honduras?”, she wrote in another tweet.
