Monsignor Roberto Lückert, emeritus coro archbishop, thanked the president of the United States, Donald Trump, for "opening his eyes" to the Venezuelan people by telling them all the money kept by officials at their bank.
"I ask myself and ask the Venezuelans: what this government has done with the dollars we have deposited in American banks; what has been done without roads, without hospitals, without health, without life. I believe that this is it's time for the Venezuelans to wake up and get tired of listening to lies that don't fit reality. Venezuela is not worth living as it is, "Lückert said on Friday at a ceremony presenting the new Un Nuevo Tiempo authority held in Maracaibo.
Lückert was frank when he stressed: "I distinguish poverty as a priest. Poverty is a Christian virtue. But misery is not. Tribulation is unfair, and what happens in Venezuela is unjust misery."
Before the press of the journalists in the action, showed that the solution to the problems of the country was election: "Dialogue will lead us to elections; but with governments that do insults, it is very difficult to dialogue".
"There is no water, no light, no feasibility, no work we can say is feasible in the past 20 years. It's time for the Venezuelans to wake up and get tired. Venezuela does not deserve to live as it is," Monsignor Roberto Lückert , archbishop. pic.twitter.com/nWyHWA6qZL
