If Trump decides to intervene and send US troops in there to support freedom and liberty for the Venezuelan people against decades of leftist tyranny and abject failure, it would have my full support. I have no doubt that virtually all of the Venezuelan people would be celebrating joyously in the streets if we helped them overthrow the leftist tyrant Maduro.
