Rev. Robert Sirico praises President Trump’s recent remarks about Venezuela

President and Co-Founder of the Acton Institute, Rev. Robert Sirico is quoted in an article published at Crux, praising President Trump for his remarks concerning Venezuela’s current social and economic state of chaos.

“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” said Trump on Tuesday in his first address to the General Assembly of the United Nations.

Sirico tells Crux that he was “relieved and encouraged to hear President Trump’s remarks at the U.N. about the causes for the social, political, and economic dislocation it is presently experiencing.”
