The United States delivered additional humanitarian aid to Cucuta on Thursday, as part of an effort to get aid across the border into Venezuela.

According to reports, the emergency supplies contain medical and hygiene kits, food, and water-treatment units.

Venezuela has been in the midst of a political crisis since January when opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president in a move that was rapidly recognised by the US, as well as several European and Latin American nations.

A coalition of countries has since tried to deliver humanitarian aid to Venezuela, which has been blocked at the border by President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

The trucks will be burning again. Maybe the ships will burn. It’s hard to trust people who have destroyed the economy with sanctions …
People hate Madura. But people more than Madura hate Guaido.

People do not trust a leader who demands sanctions. Sanctions harm people and hence people hate Guaido.The trucks will burn. Again, trucks will be burning, the possibility of a civil war.

If US sanctions destroy the economy and afterwards the United States manages humanitarian aid, humanitarian aid is burned in the middle of the road. The Yahweh or Saturn is excited.
