Maduro: Trump had terrible advisers on Venezuela

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro, whom the United States doesn't recognize, gave an interview to The Washington Post in which he asserted that US President Donald Trump has had a "wrong vision" on Venezuela because of his advisers.

"I believe Mike Pompeo has failed in Venezuela and is responsible for Donald Trump’s failure in his policy toward our country... I think Trump has had terrible advisers on Venezuela. John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, Elliott Abrams have caused him to have a wrong vision," Maduro, who is still backed by Russia and China.

Speaking diplomatically, the leftist leader also left open a possibility of dialogue with Washington. "A relationship of respect and dialogue brings a win-win situation. A confrontational relationship brings a lose-lose situation. That’s the formula," he told the paper.
