A Deal, Soft Brexit or Reversal: Theresa May's Uncertain Endgame

For Trump, clear stakes and uncertain end on Venezuela

For Trump, clear stakes and uncertain end on VenezuelaPresident Donald Trump has intervened in an unusually forceful way in Venezuela’s political crisis, but whether the United States can force a change of power remains to be seen. Trump — who has largely shunned democracy promotion overseas and is pulling troops from Syria and Afghanistan as part of an “American First” worldview — on Wednesday recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president. Backed by most but not all Latin American powers, Trump said that leftist firebrand Nicolas Maduro was illegitimate, even as the military leadership continues to support him as Venezuela’s rightful leader.
