Most supporters of socialism ignore Venezuela’s collapse – with one exception

Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and most other fantasy-embracing leftists are uncharacteristically silent about the collapse of socialism, even as President Trump calls out the real-world refutation of the suddenly trendy failed ideology in the experience of Venezuela.

From the Daily Wire:

“We’re looking at Venezuela, it’s a very sad situation,” Trump said.  “That was the richest state in all of that area.  That’s a big, beautiful area and by far the richest.  And now it’s one of the poorest places in the world.”

“That’s what socialism gets you when they want to raise your taxes to 70%,” Trump continued.  “I’ve been watching our opponents, our future opponents talking about 70%.  Number one, they can’t do it for 70%.  It’s got to probably be twice that number.”

“But, maybe more importantly, what happens is you really have to study and take a look at what has happened to Venezuela,” Trump concluded.  “Is a very sad situation.  We have our eye very closely on Venezuela.”
