Ivanka Announces Aid to Displaced Venezuelans

Ivanka Trump is in South America where she met with Guaido aides to announce U.S. aid for displaced Venezuelans.

According to McClatchy:

Ivanka Trump met with aides to Venezuelan National Assembly President Juan Guaidó in Colombia on Wednesday to underscore support for a “democratic transition in Venezuela” and offer $120 million in U.S. assistance to neighboring countries under strain from a refugee crisis.


President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter and senior adviser joined the USAID Administrator Mark Green and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan at a migrant shelter in Cúcuta, a Colombian city bordering Venezuela, to announce the new package, which brings total U.S. aid to Venezuelan refugees in the region to $376 million.

A delegation with Guaidó, who has been recognized by the United States and 50 other nations as Venezuela’s interim president, also met privately with Ivanka and Sullivan to discuss the national crisis, according to administration officials.

In their meetings, a White House official said that Ivanka emphasized the important role women play in conflict resolution worldwide — a theme of her work in the administration — and called on female leaders in Venezuela to take a leading role in resolving the crisis there.

Trump announced the commitment of the United States to the Venezuelans who are fighting for Democracy.
