This week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. sent a letter to U.S. Sens. Bob Menendez, D-NJ, and Jim Risch, R-Id., the chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, urging them to hold a full committee hearing on Cuba as protests against the communist regime led by Castro/Díaz-Canel’s dictatorship continue to occur throughout the island.
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio discussed the ongoing political developments in Venezuela, the new government of interim President Juan Guaidó, and next steps for U.S. policy.
Rubio appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and NBC’s “Meet the Press" to praise Trump’s handling of Venezuela, even as opposition to the Maduro regime continues to grow.
