WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Sunday weighed in on Venezuela’s raging power struggle between embattled ruler Nicholas Maduro and opposition leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by much of the international community as interim president.
“İ hope his future consists of living on a nice beach somewhere far from Venezuela,” John Bolton said of Maduro, speaking on ABC’s "This Week" program. Bolton said “momentum is on Guaido’s side" but suggested it will be Venezuelans who make sure the opposition leader prevails.

“There are countless conversations going on between members of the assembly and members of the military in Venezuela talking about what might come, how they [armed forces] might move to support the opposition,” the national security adviser said.
Venezuela’s economic collapse has triggered hunger, privation, and mass-migration. Recent days have added to the suffering, as widespread power outages ground to a halt a nation already on its knees. Overall, the Western Hemisphere’s most acute humanitarian disaster has forced more than three million Venezuelans to flee their oil-rich country.
