Rubio: Biden’s Concessions Help Maduro Maintain Authoritarian Grip on Venezuela

Oct 20, 2023 | Press Releases

The Biden Administration announced four General Licenses that allow Venezuelan transactions in the petroleum and gold industries, as well as trading in the Maduro regime’s sovereign debt. This is just the latest round of concessions to Maduro’s illegitimate narco-regime. 

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement criticizing the announcement, which follows the administration’s decisions to ease sanctions and open a channel of communication with Maduro’s narco-regime, granting legitimacy to a criminal dictatorship that has committed crimes against humanity and continues to detain countless political prisoners, including Americans.  

  • “The Biden Administration is complicit in prolonging the Venezuelan people’s agony under the illegitimate grip of dictator Nicolás Maduro. President Biden continues to undermine the upcoming primary elections in Venezuela by caving to the regime’s demands.

  • “We’ve seen the release of Maduro’s convict nephews and the lifting of targeted sanctions to now granting petroleum, gas, and gold licenses. No one should be surprised when this administration ends up releasing Maduro’s financier and money launderer, Alex Saab, either.”
