President Trump, several U.S. lawmakers, and now the EU Parliament, have recognized Juan Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela, signaling that it's time for Nicolas Maduro to step down. Maduro's socialist policies have plunged the nation into poverty and despair. 

Still, Maduro is clinging to power, and intimidating the opposition while he's at it. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who has been closely following and exposing the Maduro regime, shared the terrifying news that Maduro troops had arrived at Guaido's house in Caracas on Thursday to intimidate him and his family. As Rubio notes, Guaido's 20-month-old daughter and grandmother were there when the troops arrived.

Guaido called the surprise visit "cowardly" and said it "crossed the red line." 

Some Democratic senators also agreed it was a shocking sight.

Others, meanwhile, have warned Trump to stay out of Venezuela's affairs.
