WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott wrote an op-ed calling on all European nations to join together to end Nicolás Maduro’s ruthless regime in Venezuela.

In the op-ed, Senator Rick Scott wrote, Seventy-five years ago, the United States fought to free Europe. It’s time for Europe to step up and champion the cause of freedom in Venezuela.

To date, The United States has sanctioned more than 100 people and business entities in Venezuela in an effort to cut off funds to the Maduro regime. Europe needs to step up its efforts and show that it is committed to cutting off funds to human rights abusers and to pushing hard for the restoration of democracy in Venezuela.

EVERY EU country should join the United States and recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of Venezuela. EVERY EU country should impose significant sanctions on Venezuela and the Maduro Regime.

EVERY EU country should immediately stop doing business with the Cuban regime propping up Maduro and his genocide. And EVERY EU country should demand that Maduro leave power to allow for free, fair, and democratic elections without accepting a Maduro crony or clone to take his place.

History has shown that at important moments, the world community has the ability to come together, to put our differences aside and fight for the common good. This is one of those moments.”
