Maduro: Trump out to kill me

U.S. Warns Americans Not To Travel To Venezuela

Because Maduro has used the military to torture, beat, and kill peaceful dissidents - and was "re-elected" in a vote global observers consider fraudulent - Guaidó invoked constitutional Articles 333 and 350 to take over, with a mandate to hold free and fair elections as soon as possible.

In addition, he counts on the support of the military. Instead, in the case of Venezuela, Bolton has emerged as the public face of a policy by dragging into social media, nightly newscasts and press conferences. He has previously accused the U.S. of trying to orchestrate a coup.

US President Donald Trump has spoken in support of Juan Guaido.

Maduro, facing the biggest challenge to his rule since replacing Hugo Chavez six years ago, said Trump had ordered neighboring Colombia to murder him.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence met Guaido's designated envoy to the United States on Tuesday.

He said Mexico, Uruguay, Bolivia, Russia, the Vatican and several unnamed European countries wanted talks between him and the opposition.

He also thanked his Russian counterpart, saying that Vladimir Putin "is giving us support on all levels", according to Russia's state-run Sputnik information agency.

Maduro also accused the USA president of ordering a hit on him from Colombia.

The travel advisory came just days after Trump administration officials maintained that military intervention is still on the table in their attempts to remove Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro from power.

Venezuelan Attorney General Tarek Saab sought a preliminary investigation of Guaido on the basis that he helped foreign countries interfere.

"I won 68 percent of the vote", he told RIA.

The United States has already sanctioned Venezuela's state oil company and blocked its assets in the Federal Reserve Bank of NY.

For example, it is normal to wake up in the morning and see the U.S.' declaration to freeze its assets in Venezuela, or to make oil payments, not to the elected Maduro government, but to Guaido.

Venezuela's economy is already ravaged by hyperinflation and widespread food and medical shortages that have driven millions of people to leave the country. "With these measures, they intend to rob us", he said.

Demonstrators march to support the self-proclaimed President Juan Guaido, in Caracas. Venezuela's military attache to Washington deserted the president on Saturday.

Last week, a group of soldiers rose up against Maduro. He said Trump has his eyes on Venezuela's vast oil reserves and warned against any US military intervention.

"My advice to bankers, brokers, traders, facilitators, and other businesses: don't deal in gold, oil, or other Venezuelan commodities being stolen from the Venezuelan people by the Maduro mafia".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders tweeted a link to Guaido's op-ed along with the message: "America stands with the people of Venezuela". Maduro made the announcement dressed in an olive cap and shirt before rows of troops before overseeing a military training exercise.

Socialist party leaders have been organizing counter-protests by thousands of Maduro supporters in different parts of the country.

In Caracas, residents expressed frustration with the government, but some were wary about joining protests because of possible violence.
