Trump declares ‘socialism is dying’ amid Venezuela ‘catastrophe,’ promises ‘this will never happen to us’
President Donald Trump, speaking in a major foreign policy address in Miami to members of the Venezuelan community, declared Monday that “a new day is coming in Latin America” and issued a stark assessment that “socialism is dying” across the world.
In a wide-ranging rebuke of socialism that seemed targeted as much at Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua as it was at congressional Democrats, Trump remarked: “We know that socialism is not about justice, it’s not about equality, it’s not about lifting up the poor — it’s about one thing only: power for the ruling class. And, the more power they get, the more they crave.
They want to run health care, run transportation and finance, run energy, education, run everything. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who’s up and who’s down, what’s true and what’s false, and even who lives and who dies.”
Before a supportive and raucous crowd at Florida International University in Miami Trump announced, flanked by large American and Venezuelan flags, “This will never happen to us. … America will never be a socialist country.”
Here’s the key moment of the speech:
Trump also emphasized that Venezuela is now ready to begin anew.

Trump vows ‘new day’ for Venezuela
President Donald Trump condemned socialism and urged a peaceful transition of power to end the Venezuelan crisis on Monday.
“We’re here to proclaim that a new day is coming in Latin America, it’s coming,” Trump said at a speech at Florida International University in Miami. “The people of Venezuela are standing for freedom and democracy, and the United States of America are standing right by their side.”
Trump expressed strong support for Venezuela’s self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaidó and urged the Venezuelan military to abandon the country’s socialist president Nicolás Maduro, warning of financial repercussions and hinting at a military intervention in an speech aimed at rallying the Venezuelan-American community in support of the country’s opposition party.
“You’ve seen the crimes and you’ve seen the corruption. You’ve seen the hunger and the suffering,” Trump said. “You have protested and protested with respect, but loudly, and you have prayed for the day we can now see which is just ahead — the day when all of the people of this region will at last be free.”
What a great message for the people of Venezuela.
