They can discuss how each of them are having problems with those in their countries who are resisting their respective pushes to complete socialism / communism.

King Obama will give him planes, tanks, weapons, and billions of our tax payer money. Any doubt?

The truth? From Obama? Mr. Maduro doesn't sound like he's very bright.

He’s making Air Force One reservations immediately. Any enemy of his enemy is his friend! He’s packing right now and kissing his lovely bride goodbye.

He [Maduro] has accused US conservatives and media organisations of plotting to overthrow his government.

The protestors are voicing their grievances against soaring crime rates, high inflation, a shortage of basic goods, and a lack of political and economic freedom. According to the CATO Institute, Maduro's "new" Marxist policies of abolishing property rights, inheritance, centralization of credit to the state and the confiscation of property are unpopular with his people.

Maduro is a typical Democrat, name-calling and blaming others for his problems. Maybe he should talk and listen to the people of Venezuela.

If I could I would toss out every communist regime on the planet including our own. I wish we could arm those folks so they could take on the cuban led and trained marxists.

Truth, a concept foreign to both administrations.

Believe it. World Wide Communism is their goal. They will not give up easily. They will support one another. Getting an avowed Marxist regime into power in the United States was the coup of the last century. They will continue to try to make the most of it even to the destruction of entire civilizations. ie: Ukraine It is their Religion. If you wanted to have a conference of the Marxist leaning leaders just from the Americas you would need a venue as large as Yankee stadium.

“He has accused US conservatives and media organisations of plotting to overthrow his government.”

I assume Obama said that.

The police and armed chavistas thugs are killing unarmed Venezuelan students while the World keeps a shameful silence.

— Thomas Jefferson “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

— Thomas Jefferson “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

CUBA, Venezuela.. A disarmed people are an easy prey for tyrants... AMERICANS DON’T ALLOW ANY APPRENTICE OF TYRANT DISARM YOU!!!

Obama has the luxury of sending one of several official representatives of communism: Danny Glover, Kevin Spacey, Oliver Stone, Sean Penn, Kevin Costner, Steven Spielberg, Michael Moore.

This will give Obama an excuse to jail conservatives and shut down conservative media.
