This is the front page of the NYT. The story is fake. As I have posted in the past, the bridge has never been open. It was not blocked because of the aid. The mouth piece of the Deep State knows it is false, but that doesn’t stop them because most people never fact check.
The real story is from Southfront below.
Trump Delivers Blunt Warning to Venezuela Military Over Aid Impasse
February 18, 2019
MIAMI — President Trump on Monday delivered his sharpest warning yet to Venezuela’s military authorities in an increasingly tense showdown over that country’s crisis, proclaiming they would “lose everything” by remaining loyal to President Nicolás Maduro and refusing to allow in emergency aid stockpiled on the border.
Mr. Trump gave the warning in a speech denouncing Venezuela’s brand of socialism to an enthusiastic crowd in Miami that included many Americans of Venezuelan descent who have fled Venezuela or have relatives in the country, once Latin America’s wealthiest but now facing the greatest economic collapse in generations.
He spoke five days before a deadline that his administration and the Venezuelan opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, have declared for getting humanitarian aid into the country — a move aimed at weakening Mr. Maduro, who is no longer recognized by the United States and roughly 50 other nations as the country’s president. Mr. Trump was the first to recognize Mr. Guaidó last month as Mr. Maduro’s replacement until new elections can be held.
Bridge “Blocked” At Colombia-Venezuela Border Crossing To Stop US Humanitarian Aid Has Been Never Opened
February 12, 2019
Allegedly blocked Colombia-Venezuela border crossing bridge appeared to be a permanently closed point. Contrary to MSM reports that it was blocked specifically to stop US humanitarian aid.
@AbbyMartin @danielmkovalik @MaxBlumenthal One more time corp media is spreading fake news to favours warmongers. Las Tienditas Binational Bridge hasn’t been in used since built in 2015. The International Simón Bolívar Bridge for both, car and pedestrian cross border is OPEN pic.twitter.com/9GlNzTG620
