51. If we had a real State Department, the secretary would be working with

Venezuela, its neighboring states, and the other latin american countries to shore up Venezuela. Letting Venezuela collapse will affect every other country in the region and pose a threat to our own national security. By staying on the sidelines and lobbing spitballs at Maduro, Trump is once again abdicating our authority as a world leader and creating a power vacuum that China, Cuba or Russia will be happy to fill.

Letting our enemies establish an unchecked beachhead for influence in South America, on our back door, is not in anyone's best interest.
