Venezuelans supported their elected gov't
Trump & co are returning to Reagan's 1980s and the FBI and CIA's 1970s where regularly elected gov'ts of a social democratic persuasion were violently overthrown and ferocious military dictatorships put in their place, imprisonment and slaughter for opponents (the leader of the social democrats, e.g., Allende in Chile) and corporations move in to make huge profits off the natural resources of the country, which should belong to and make life decent for its people.
Update: Venezuela is holding firm as yet because the "troika of tyranny" running the US gov't and military just now has not been able to get all its allies on board and has not outright attacked with a military assault. It is said Putin is against this and this it is which holds Trump back -- Trump is apparently an agent or instrument of Putin in a number of areas (e.g., Syria).

Little information is found anywhere because a rare person reporting the full story with the Venezuelan people's true side accounted is Amy Goodman and her crew at DemocracyNow.org: you can watch these YouTube videos or read the transcripts:
The Nation has also run some columns explaining what's happening:
It's very hard for Maduros and his group to keep the nation on the side of democracy when they are so punished for this: to produce an effectie counter-punch
Call it what it is: a coup
Trump & his capitalist allies are simply recognizing a man who is not elected as president but is important in the assembly; Maduros has demanded that all US diplomats and people get out in 72 hours.
