International Support for Authoritarian Leaders in the Americas

8/22/2022; 88 minutes

The United States and other foreign countries have imposed crippling sanctions against the governments of Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega, Venezuela's Nicolas Maduro and Cuba's Miguel Diaz-Canel due to the rule of their authoritarian leaders. Those countries are seeking support elsewhere including with some of the adversaries of the U.S. government. Nicaragua has re-established ties with China in an effort to subvert the economic pressure imposed by the United States. Richard Feinberg hosts a discussion with Cynthia Arnson, Francisco Monaldi, and John Polga-Hemovich on which governments are supporting authoritarian leaders in Latin America. (#38109)
