> Maduro supporters held their own rally.
>> And people were calling for a reckon of return to democracy, end of the use of patients, free elections, saying, Guaido is my president. There wasn't much police presence, unlike the protest last Wednesday, which police cracked down quite heavily on.
And hours earlier, Maduro marched triumphantly with military personnel, remaining defiant as many countries, including the United States have thrown their support behind Guiado. Maduro claimed on Wednesday, that US President Donald Trump wants him dead. In an interview with Russian state media, Maduro said Trump ordered Colombia's government and mafia to kill him.
His comments followed photos snapped Monday, of handwriting on Bolton's notepad that said 5,000 troops to Colombia. But Russia, which accuses the Trump administration of trying to usurp power in Venezuela, is warning the US against any military intervention and is calling on Guido to accept mediation. Trump however is standing firm and his support for Guado, whose bank accounts were frozen and travel barred by Venezuela's Supreme Court.
He's also under investigation by Venezuelan authorities which could lead to his arrest>> Which can raises the question about what is Guwaido gonna do now? I think at the moment their strategy seems to be to continue to keep the opposition unified, to win as much recognition abroad as possible, and try to sway Venezuela's military.
The future is very uncertain with events changing day by day.>> Guaido and Trump agreed during a phone call Wednesday to maintain regular contact as protest spread in the coming days.
