Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro, who already has a legal president waiting in the wings to take the reins, now has a mountain of U.S. pressure to get out while the getting's good. He's not much for Twitter, but in the last few hours, he's been going like gangbusters, or, well, in his case, gangs, trying to rally the left to his regime and get his "narrative" for them out. Look at this amazingly long string of recent tweets.
The big thing making him scream publicly is news of the crushing round of sanctions employed by President Trump and his dream team of Latin American advisers, declaring anyone out there collaborating with the Venezuelan oil company now subject to sanctions, same as Venezuela's ruling drug-dealers. The sanctions also focus on Citgo ownership, handing recognized power to Venezuela's legitimate president, Juan Guaidó. That targets the money stream, and Maduro doesn't have much money left anyway. All of these moves, coupled with defection after defection , and now the news U.S. incentives to the Venezuelan troops involved in running Venezuela's oil company to defect (which seems to be a keystone of Operation Boot Maduro ), are poison to the dictator.

Now that’s some CHANGE we can hope for.
He needs to take a “trip” to consult with his friends in Bolivia or Havana if he wants to remain in this Hemisphere.
I did hear his chief of defense was siding with him, but now he’s changed his mind.
Not a lot of information out of that part of the world it seems. It must not fit the narrative or something.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Should have happened to his predecessor.
Good fishing and scuba diving in Cuba.
Let him go to Cuba. The beaches are fantastic, and the health care is second to none!
“His problem is....where do you go? Even if he has cash...its going to be taken away at some point. I dont think any Latin American country would take the guy except for Cuba.”
Cuba by way of Russia.
I’ll bet he has salted millions away in a Swiss bank account and there probably are several countries in the mid-east and Europe that would welcome him.
First they have to freeze all his offshore accounts.
He’s buds with Putin, Iran and China.
Mexico sticks with Venezuelas Maduro as US recognizes his rival
He can stay with Sean Penn
