Miami, .- The wife of Juan Guaidó, Fabiana Rosales, said Tuesday in the capital of Florida that the life of her husband, the “true president” of Venezuela, like that of other Venezuelans, is “in danger”, but there is no “backward” in the struggle for freedom and democracy.
Rosales, who is touring the United States, during which she has been received by President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania and Miami-Dade County mayors, Carlos Giménez, and Miami, Francis Suárez, was received today by the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, and the lieutenant governor, Jeanette Núñez.
The United States was the first country to recognize the opposition Guaidó, head of the National Assembly, as the legitimate president of Venezuela, something that has already been done by fifty countries.
Without mentioning expressly the latest measures of the Government of Nicolás Maduro to tighten the fence on Guaidó, Rosales said that his life is in danger and showed a worried face.
Governor DeSantis did refer to the possibility of the “legitimate president” of Venezuela being arrested and said it would be “a huge mistake” that because of what he has spoken with President Trump, he is sure that it would have consequences.
Rosales herself in an interview with a Colombian radio station said a few hours ago that it would be “a coup d’état”.
Rosales told La FM, if her husband is arrested, after the Supreme Court of Justice asked the Constituent Assembly, similar to Maduro, to lift her immunity as a parliamentarian, “it would be a direct coup d’état”.
According to his account, said court is illegitimate and is “sent by a usurping president”, in reference to Nicolás Maduro.
In a press appearance at the gubernatorial headquarters in Tallahassee (north Florida), Rosales thanked the international community for its support and solidarity to the cause of freedom and democracy in his country, and referred to the current situation in Venezuela, “where there is no light, there is no water and there are no medicines”.
Because of a “terrible dictatorship” that “does not care about anything except slaughtering lives,” children and elderly people die every second, Rosales said.
However, he assured that the struggle has no “back” and that nothing is going to stop the Venezuelan people “until they win freedom and democracy”.
“We have the international community, we know that they will help us as an act of saving lives,” said Rosales, who was also sure that they have the “blessing of God.”
“We are determined to transform reality,” he stressed.
Cassey DeSantis, wife of the governor of Florida, considered the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela “unacceptable” and, as a mother, expressed her solidarity with Venezuelan mothers, such as Rosales, who has a young girl, Miranda Eugenia.
“The good people of Florida are with you,” he said.
Jeanette Nuñez, vice governor of Florida, said that as a daughter of Cubans who fled her country, she understands “very well” what is happening in Venezuela and expressed her solidarity with the Venezuelan people.
Governor DeSantis stressed that the same day that Maduro’s dictatorship ends, Venezuelans “will begin to recover from a sad chapter in their history.” (EFEUSA)
