WH Invites Venezuelan Opposition Leader To SOTU

Bloomberg News reports:

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido plans to attend President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday as a guest of the White House, according to three people familiar with the matter. Guaido’s attendance provides a high-profile platform for the Venezuelan National Assembly leader as he seeks to revive support for his bid to oust President Nicolás Maduro.

Guaido’s visit to Washington capped a world tour in which he visited world leaders in Europe and Canada in hopes of rallying new momentum for his cause after an attempted uprising against Maduro failed last year. Though nearly 60 countries have recognized Guaido as the leader of Venezuela, he’s made little progress in actually unseating the deeply-entrenched regime.
