6:51 am
here in the united states has been very passionate about the situation in venezuela he tweeted news of this colonel saying in the united states in announcing his support for the u.s. recognized president clearly saying that this was a sign that there was mid-level military switching sides if you will he has talked about how important the situation in venezuela is or should be to average americans arguing that it's not only a case of human rights and the people and helping the people of venezuela but also a case of national security for the united states a national interest for the united states and the american people to take in venezuela because of the possibility of russians being invited in to set up a naval base in the western hemisphere in venezuela something that nicolas maduro has done in the past he talked about the drug war and how that is not being fought
6:52 am
as effectively because of all the crisis that's happening in south america and so on and so forth so he clearly tweeting about this defection of the colonel saw it as an important moment and certainly there have been appeals from other government officials to the people of venezuela messages that the united states has the back of the people there that they're sending twenty million dollars in humanitarian assistance to venezuela and so on so we'll have to see of other military leaders fall. those suits but i'm sure that people like senator marco rubio secretary of state my pump a.o.r. are also looking for more of these kinds of announcements and hoping that this will be the first of more to come christmas salumi with the latest on that breaking news from washington kristen thank you well the u.k. france germany and spain have given president eight days to call a fresh election if he doesn't they say that they will also fishley recognize why
