The U.S. president has a near-maniacal obsession with insisting on dictating to other countries not willing to bow to his dictates.
U.S. President Donald Trump delivered his latest loud, clear and direct threat to Venezuela on the same day that Venezuelans posted a very strong message of defiance to him.As he delivered his first speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 19, tens of thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets in Caracas to tell him to keep his hands off their country — and their elected President.
