Pope Francis, Cuba and Leftist ALBA attempt to Prop Up Dictator Maduro

Today, Reuter reported that "Venezuela's leftist, regional allies pledged to support...President Nicolas Maduro."

Cuba and the leftist ALBA of 11 Latin American countries vowed to prop up the dictator as massive anti-Maduro demonstrations demanded democracy.

Before the Leftist countries pledged support, Pope Francis, also, attempted to prop up the dictator.

The Miami Herald on February 8, in headlines, said:

"Pope Francis, get out of Venezuela. You're only making things worse."

The Herald said that Francis's mediation effort "has legitimized that country's authoritarian ruler Nicolas Maduro, throwing him a lifeline when millions of protesters were demanding his resignation on the streets in October 2016."

Maduro officially became a dictator on December 6, 2015 when he stripped all "major powers from the National Assembly."

The Herald article ended by saying:

Pope Francis... stop being an obstacle in the restoration of democratic rule in Venezuela."
