BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 P.M.) – U.S. national security adviser John Bolton told CNN’s Jake Tapper this week that the U.S.’ support for certain dictatorships doesn’t undermine their stance on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
When asked about his government’s support for some Middle East dictatorships, Bolton attempted to evade the question by referencing his total number of tweets regarding Maduro’s presidency.
Bolton, who is known as a war hawk in Washington, has repeatedly called for the Venezuelan President to step down.
Below is an excerpt from the CNN interview this week:
US supports dictators around the world… but not in its hemisphere. And there's a difference, according to John Bolton
