U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday warned members of the Venezuelan military that they risk their lives and their country’s future by continuing to back embattled President Nicolás Maduro. “Maduro is not a Venezuelan patriot, he is a Cuban puppet,” Trump said in a speech to a Venezuelan expatriate crowd in Miami. Florida is home to an estimated 190,000 Venezuelans, many of whom arrived in the past decade as their homeland slid into economic and political crisis under Maduro.
