ICYMI: Rubio Calls Out Biden for Appeasing Maduro

Biden administration never learns – Venezuela’s dictator cannot be appeased

The [Biden] administration’s decision to renew the permission for Western companies to export petroleum to Venezuela…came barely a week after narco-dictator Nicolás Maduro illegitimately barred his reformer opponent, Maria Corina Machado, from running for president….

The administration has taken these actions in hopes of getting the regime to negotiate with pro-democracy leaders…. Instead of loosening its grip, however, the dictatorship has only tightened it…. The regime also continues to threaten U.S. national security and violate international law….

[President Biden’s] wishful thinking does neither America or Venezuela any good. It also stands in stark contrast to the administration’s ideological persecution of democratically elected, pro-American governments in Guatemala and El Salvador. To regain foreign policy coherence on Venezuela, we must return to the maximum pressure campaign of the Trump administration.

This…means designating the Venezuelan regime and its paramilitary “colectivos” as foreign terrorist organizations, doubling down on sanctions and blocking the regime from assuming Venezuela’s seats at the OAS, the Inter-American Development Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

This is a lot to expect from the left-leaning Biden administration. But, in the end, it’s just common sense. Venezuela is ruled by a criminal enterprise fundamentally opposed to America’s national interest. No amount of appeasement will change that.
