John Bolton urges Venezuelan military support after Guaido seeks backing

U.S. President Trump's national security adviser John Bolton on Tuesday appeared to back Juan Guaido’s call for support after the Venezuelan opposition leader urged Venezuelans and the military to back his effort to oust President Nicolas Maduro, ONA reports.

“The FANB must protect the Constitution and the Venezuelan people. It should stand by the National Assembly and the legitimate institutions against the usurpation of democracy. The United States stands with the people of Venezuela,” Bolton wrote on his Twitter page, referring to the FANB armed forces.
