Non-Emergency U.S. Government Employees Ordered To Leave Venezuela

Pompeo

The U.S. State Department is ordering  all of its non-emergency workers to leave Venezuela, amid a political crisis.  President Nicolas Maduro has ordered all U.S. diplomats out of  the country, but the U.S. has said it does not recognize any orders from  Maduro. The U.S. directive strongly encourages American citizens who  live in or are visiting Venezuela to consider leaving.  There is an  ongoing political crisis in the country with two men claiming to be  president.  The Trump Administration has backed the challenger, Juan Guaido as the nation's interim president.
