During his #COVID19 press conference, Trump announced that he's deploying the Navy to #Venezuela. Wait, what? What's #coronavirus got to do with Venezuela?


Trump is distracting us from his incompetence by threatening war. #HandsOffVenezuela
Trump's justification for the naval deployment is cocaine trafficking. But guess what?? #Venezuela doesn't even produce cocaine! This is just another one of Trump's attempts to #WagTheDog. Check out this map of maritime drug routes. 👇👇👇
Let's take a further look at this map, shall we?
#Venezuela is barely a blip on the map.

If Trump's excuse for deploying ships was truly about drugs, then why isn't the US imposing sanctions & threatening war on Colombia? #WagTheDog
Trump also put a $15 million bounty on #Maduro & $10 million bounties on 4 others. That $55 MILLION could be used to buy ventilators for cities & towns in the US desperate for aid during #COVID19.

Trump cares more about regime change than he does about our health. #WagTheDog
Trump's deployment is the latest in his "maximum pressure" strategy that has devastated the Venezuelan economy & caused 100,000 deaths.

How many deaths is a Trump reelection worth??
Rather than showing leadership in the face of the pandemic, Trump is using an old trick: #WagTheDog.

The world deserves better than the US. We need a foreign policy of global solidarity!! #HealthcareNOTWarfare…
The #coronavirus pandemic should bring us all together. Starting a war in the middle of #COVID19 is sickening, demented & cruel.

Fund healthcare, NOT warfare!! #HandsOffVenezuela
