U.S. sa...

Venezuela gives U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave, blames Trump for blackout

Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said U.S. diplomats on Venezuelan soil must leave within three days, after talks broke down over maintaining diplomatic "interest sections" in the two countries. The U.S. State Department had announced on Monday it will withdraw its staff from Venezuela this week, saying their presence had become "a constraint on U.S. policy."

In fact, it seemed at times that his speech was straight out of a criticism of a 1997 climate agreement the U.S. also joined but then withdrew from: the Kyoto Protocol.  From the legal aspects of the treaty itself, to the effects on U.S. jobs and economic growth, Trump’s address was, as one former U.N. official put it, “factu...
