This is quite the statement. Will further world leaders follow suit?
Venzuela’s President, Nicolas Maduro, has revealed that all American citizens will require mandatory visas to visit the country. He also announced that Ex-President George W. Bush and Ex-Vice President Dick Cheney would be banned from entering the country under any circumstances; branding them ‘terrorists‘ in the process.
Republican Congress members Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Robert Menendez and Marco Rubio are also facing a ban from entry. Furthermore, ‘US diplomats will be required to seek approval from the Foreign Ministry for meetings they conduct in Venezuela.’ Maduro expelled diplomats he suspected of wrong-doing a few years back.
At the end of 2014 Maduro claimed ‘to be in possesion of “recordings” disclosing US plans to bribe and corrupt Venezuelan authorities’. He also accused the U.S. of attempting a coup. The plotters were allegedly paid in U.S. dollars and wanted to assassinate Maduro. Britain and Canada have also been involved with the coup attempt.

When announcing the new regulations for US tourists, Maduro said that Venezuela apprehended American citizens who were involved in “espionage activities.”
“We have captured some US citizens in undercover activities, espionage, trying to win over people in towns along the Venezuelan coast,” he said.
Maduro also said that Venezuela captured a US pilot of Latin American descent in the western state of Tachira, who he claims was conducting “covert” espionage activities…
