Benjamin stressed that Guaid├│ supporters and the Trump administration's appeal to human rights in opposing Maduro is incompatible with encouraging sanctions.

"It's ridiculous for the U.S. government to say that it cares about the well being of the Venezuelan people when it has sanctions that are making the lives of millions of people miserable," Benjamin said. "We've seen reports that show that at least 40,000 people have died because of the sanctions. And we asked the people who were outside the embassy who call themselves 'democracy lovers' and want democracy in Venezuela, if they're against the sanctions and they say 'No, they're for the sanctions,' and yet they're complaining about their loved ones in Venezuela suffering the number one thing we could do to alleviate the suffering of the people in Venezuela is to lift those sanctions."
