Wall Street Journal: Venezuela, America Stands With You
Mike Pence, vice president of the United States

Millions lack access to drinking water and food, and the average Venezuelan reports losing significant weight in recent years, with the poorest dropping more than 20 pounds. Three out of four hospitals are abandoned, causing infectious diseases that were once eradicated in our hemisphere to re-emerge and spread. … This is a humanitarian crisis and also a matter of regional security. … Venezuela’s crisis will worsen until democracy is restored. … America stands with the Venezuelan people as they stand up to the dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro…” (1/22).
