Trump hosts Venezuela opposition leader's wife

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump held an unexpected meeting with Fabiana Rosales de Guaidó, wife of Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guido, at the White House on Wednesday, where he said Venezuela is "broken," but Rosales de Guaidó acknowledged that Venezuela is "not alone." The high-profile meeting was aimed at demonstrating U.S. backing for Guaido, the head of Venezuela's national assembly, who in January invoked the constitution to assume the interim presidency, arguing that President Nicolas Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate.

Most Latin American and Western countries have recognized Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader.

Maduro, who retains control of state functions and the country's military, says Guaido is a puppet of the United States.
