With Venezuelan Dictator Nicolas Maduro’s regime continuing to spill blood on the streets of Caracas and other cities within that embattled country, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) has joined fellow Floridian, Sen. Marco Rubio (R) in threatening Maduro with “serious consequences,” if interim president Juan Guaido is harmed in any way.
The threat came in form of a tweet after Guaido, who is on a Latin American tour, said he would return home to lead protestors. Guaido could be put in jail upon his arrival for violated a Supreme Court order prohibiting from traveling abroad.
Maduro, who has been called the illegitimate president of Venezuela, himself has already threatened Guaido.
“He can come and go [but] he will have to face justice, and justice prohibited [him] from leaving the country. I will respect the laws,” Maduro told ABC news.
The U.S. stands with Guaidó and the people of #Venezuela!

Rubio all-but stated that Maduro’s human rights atrocities and the burning of humanitarian aide has made the case for the international community to act how “badly they (Maduro regime) overplayed their hand.”
President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have already said that “all options,” including military action, would be considering in dealing with Maduro.
