Juan Guaidó, President of Venezuela’s National Assembly, was sworn in as interim president of the country in front of hundreds of thousands in the nation capital.
Minutes later, the White House said that the U.S. recognizes Guaidó as the “legitimate president of Venezuela”.
Venezuela’s dictator Nicolás Maduro has threatened with putting Guaidó in jail if he was sworn in.
The next few hours should be decisive for the future of Venezuela.
