I can only pray that the country I grew up in, #Venezuela, does not continue to suffer the way the country I was born in, #Cuba, has suffered at the hands of thugs who use #socialism as an excuse to oppress their people.
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro won another six years in office on Sunday in an election that has been criticised as a farce and that is likely to prompt further sanctions from the US and condemnation from the EU and Latin American countries.
Irrefutable & major democratic victory by @NicolasMaduro in #Venezuela’s election. US & opposition claim “mass hunger, failed economy” have made the government unpopular, yet the poorest areas came out in the biggest numbers in support of Maduro

I add my voice to those around the world calling out the sham election in #Venezuela. The #Maduro regime’s attempt to validate their cruel repression of the Venezuelan people is a cynical and unprecedented abuse of power. I stand with the Venezuelan people! #20May#cdnpoli
