The battle for control of Venezuela rages on. Opposition leader Juan Guaido called for protesters to return to the streets, a day after he stood with a group of soldiers and announced an uprising to seize power from embattled President Nicolas Maduro.
But Maduro says the “coup” attempt by Guaido — who is the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly — was put down by the military.
In a televised speech, Maduro rejected claims he’s lost control of the military, and he accused “imperialist” forces of trying to take over the country.
The Trump administration reiterated its support for Guaido, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Maduro was planning to leave Venezuela for Cuba, but was talked out of it by the Russians. Maduro denied that. Click here to get the latest updates on the unrest.
