Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday said he's cutting off relations with the U.S., and giving U.S. diplomats 72 hours to abandon the country.
The socialist leader ordered a review of Venezuela's relationship with the U.S. after the Trump administration officially recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation's interim president.
The move comes one day after Vice President Mike Pence sent a recorded video of himself to Venezuelans referring to Maduro as "a dictator with no legitimate claim to power."
"He has never won the presidency in a free and fair election, and has maintained his grip on power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him," Pence said in the video.

Can we send some of our communists with his diplomats? Alexandria Occasional-Cortex comes to mind.
Won’t be for long....
I say we send ALL the liberal commies to their socialist utopia Venezuela PERMANENTLY so they can see how super awesome it is to live there
Will he be returning our cash then too?
Since our RECOGNIZED president has not ordered them out of the country, Trump should ignore him.
Not if they’re being threatened.
“I say we send ALL the liberal commies to their socialist utopia Venezuela PERMANENTLY so they can see how super awesome it is to live there”
Socialism is pretty grand, if you happen to be one of the leadership, or related to someone in leadership.
Everyone that wants to eat, or stay out of prison, curries your favor, or cowers in your presence. No laws apply to you, and you simply take anything you want, from money, to property, to kids off the streets to use as sex toys.
What’s not to like?
How long does Maduro hold onto power, more than 72 hours?
So Trump can’t give the SOTU address from Caracas?
Now what will we do!
Just waiting for the Pope to resolve this....just like he has resolved all the problems in the church.
I say Maduro will be dead by Sunday.
That's my thought as well. If they kidnap our diplomats then we send in the military and end this.
What relations ?
Will Russia or Red China prop him up?
