After several days of protests erupting in Cuba, reports of Venezuelan officials taking action against oppositional leaders have come to light. Top opposition aide Freddy Guevara is reported to have been arrested, and intruders have attempted to kidnap Juan Guaido as well. In response, both Republicans and Democrats have voiced their support for the Venezuelan people, and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) shared Maduro was “terrified of protests in Cuba and will try anything possible in order to remain in power during this time.

On Twitter, Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) shared images of “Maduro thugs in the garage building where Juan Guaido lives.” He explained that Guaido’s “wife reports they have come to abduct him” while also noting that “there is no coincidence, this is directly related to ongoing events in Cuba.”

In response to what’s taking place in both Cuba and Venezuela, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D)signaled support for the Cuban people while also warning of the dangers of the Maduro regime.

“Maduro is terrified the demonstrations in Cuba will soon spread to the people of Venezuela, and is already stepping up attacks on his opposition,” she wrote on Twitter. She then affirmed that the United States “stands with President Juan Guaido, Freddy Guevara and everyone fighting for a democratic Venezuela.”

The Maduro regime has attempted to kidnap Guaido multiple times as Rubio pointed out on social media, noting that at one point “Maduro gangsters” had surrounded “the truck where President Juan Guaido is.” Once again, Rubio shared that “this is directly linked to the protests in Cuba & fear of its spreading to Venezuela.”
