Juan Guaidó is the product of a decade-long project overseen by Washington’s elite regime change trainers. While posing as a champion of democracy, Guaidó has spent years at the forefront of a violent campaign of destabilisation in Venezuela.[1]

Juan Guaidó declared himself interim president on 23 January 2019 but the National Assembly voted 72 to 29 to abolish his interim government in December 2022. Lawmakers also voted to appoint a commission to govern Venezuela's foreign assets, as they seek a united front ahead of elections scheduled for 2024.[2]

Who is He?

On 1 February 2019, Dr Jill Stein tweeted:

"Who is Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed Venezuelan president? His US-funded Popular Will party is known as the most violent faction of Venezuela's rightwing opposition, with a history of sabotage, brutal street violence and a nasty habit of burning people alive."[3]

Juan Guaidó en GQ México Mayo 2019

In April 2019 GQ Mexico published a cheesy biopic of Guaidó (See video), about which Moon of Alabama quipped:

“An energy-balance bracelet wearing model doing soft-erotic photo shootings for GQ will hardly be taken seriously when it calls for a general strike.”

"Interim President"

Protests against "Interim President" Guaidó

On 12 June 2022, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken tweeted:

For the second time in as many weeks, Interim President @jguaido was attacked in Venezuela.
The United States is deeply concerned and condemns these escalating acts of violence, harassment, and intimidation against Interim President Guaidó and all those who stand for democracy.[5]

Craig Murray responded:

He is not the interim President. Nobody voted for him. He was "attacked" by ordinary people jeering at the appearance of this vile CIA puppet.
Venezuela already has a President. They don't need the USA to impose one.[6]

On 31 December 2022, John McEvoy tweeted:

Juan Guaidó is finally gone.
The Venezuelan opposition has removed him as "Interim President" and dissolved his parallel government.
Never forget how the British media, particularly The Guardian, provided cover for Guaidó's farcical power grab which harmed ordinary Venezuelans.[7]


In June 2019, Dan Cohen wrote an article entitled From coup leaders to con artists: Juan Guaidó’s gang exposed for massive humanitarian aid fraud on an investigation that "exposed members of Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaidó's inner circle for embezzling tens of thousands of dollars designated for humanitarian aid and spending it on luxury goods and lavish accommodations for themselves".[8]
