After President Trump’s powerful speech to the United Nations, most of the world was left with no doubt that America is “back again,” and has returned to be the world-leader that it used to be.
Trump made sure to let the “bad actors” in attendance know exactly how he felt, as he sent a strong message to countries like North Korea and Venezuela, leaving them knowing exactly where they stand with America.
The president strongly denounced Communism and Socialism, which has sent Venezuela to the brink of despair lately, and left the country badly impoverished and on the verge of anarchy.
“The socialist dictatorship of Nicolás Maduro has inflicted terrible pain and suffering on the good people of that country. This corrupt regime destroyed a prosperous nation, by imposing a failed ideology that has produced poverty and misery everywhere it has been tried,” said President Trump.
Trump continued, adding, “The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.”
After this, the room burst into a round of applause, elated that America is back to being a powerhouse world leader, however, Venezuelan leaders were not amused.
Jorge Arreaza, former Vice President of Venezuela, weighed in, but failed in his attack on President Trump when he said, “For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or to President Trump in 2017.”
Clearly, Arreaza didn’t realize that by comparing President Trump to President Reagan, he actually paid Trump a great compliment!
