Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro kicked out US diplomats and wants to cut ties with the US after President Trump said he recognizes opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation’s legitimate president. Other countries — including Canada, Brazil, Chile and Colombia — also say Guaido is the embattled country’s true leader. Guaido swore himself into office and said Maduro had been deposed, but there’s no sign Maduro is stepping down. Venezuelans held mass protests yesterday, and Maduro took to the balcony of the presidential palace to accuse the US of trying to engineer a coup. Trump’s declaration sets the stage for more drama that’s sure to reverberate in US domestic politics.
