Waa, President Trump has reshaped US foreign policy putting our interests above so-called multilateralism. It's no surprise the Bolivians of the world pine for good old Uncle Sucker bowing and scraping under the weight of Presidential apology tours. But don't worry multilateralism in good standing can be purchased by the generous application of taxpayer dollars to prop up failed socialist dictatorships like Cuba and Venezuela.

no we've pretty much always wanted Venezuelan oil. trump did nothing new in backing the loser instead of elected president. just he wants to start a war it seems and restir that pot. we need to keep pushing back against the mic and imperialism.
in other words
none of our bees wax

sadly the history of America's imperialist actions over the years that he outlined is what it is. Ds And R in leadership doesn't seem to matter much.
He's right. it's not the whole story but it is part of the sad reality.
(the other countries he mentioned aren't saints either though)

But as far as being a part of and subject to all these international bodies and every treaty that's purposed "for the good of mankind" well, that's another story.
each agreement, treaty and "international court" declaration has to be taken ... or rejected... on a case by case basis by the the U.S..
we shouldn't be meddling in other countries affairs as a bully but other countries have no biz telling us what to do in our internal affairs either.

Trump wants to replace the socialist dictator who has wrecked the country. Naturally the Resistance takes the side of the dictator in blind opposition to Trump.

Then there is the catnip for Democrats, Maduro is a socialist and closely aligned with Cuba. Hence, the wreckage of once prosperous Venezuela is the fault of the US in particular Trump. The economic crisis and political repression there cannot be allowed to dim the golden halo crowning openly socialist Democrats here.

Marshaling humanitarian aid for starving Venezuelans isn't trying to invade. Neither is putting diplomatic pressure on the dictator to give way peacefully.

Guaidó belongs to

a progressive social-democratic political party in Venezuela admitted into the Socialist International in December 2014

called Popular Will.

Not a word about the brutal dictatorship of Maduro. Just yesterday troops under his command blocked tons of humanitarian aid from being brought into the country. Let them eat cake as long as the Resistance can mindlessly oppose Trump over wanting to replace a failed socialist regime.

What a change in US stance toward socialist dictators. Obama was overflowing with delight when Hugo Chavez gave him a copy of the anti American manifesto "The Open Veins of Latin America" supremely ignorant of being punked by the dictator. Trump actively supports regime change and leads a coalition to provide humanitarian aid to a country in crisis where people are struggling to get enough to eat. But the change is too much for Resistance zealots clinging to their hatred for Trump even at the cost of abandoning advocacy of human rights.
