In First Phone Call, Trump Congratulates Guaido On Becoming President Of Venezuela

President Trump started a Tuesday morning twitter storm with a tweet warning that Maduro will be "willing to negotiate" after the US starves his teetering regime of badly needed funding via the sanctions that were levied earlier this week.

"Maduro willing to negotiate with opposition in Venezuela following U.S. sanctions and the cutting off of oil revenues. Guaido is being targeted by Venezuelan Supreme Court. Massive protest expected today. Americans should not travel to Venezuela until further notice.

But tweeting isn't all the president did. According to Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Trump spoke with Guaido for what appears to be the first time on Wednesday. A readout of the call revealed that Trump "congratulated" Guaido on his "historic assumption of the presidency of Venezuela," and promised to keep in regular contact to "support Venezuela's path back to stability."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I'm getting intellectual whiplash from this; it sounds as though "negotiations" were what President Trump wanted here all along, and not regime change, which is absolutely the polar opposite from this morning's tweat.

Russia has already pledged to protect its "financial investments" in Venezuela, by whatever legal means is necessary.

Has our President gone completely, barking mad here?!?
