Self-declared president Juan Guaidó is planning to return to Venezuela today after defying a travel ban with a tour of several Latin American countries to consolidate support for a transitional government. But amid the threat of legal repercussions, the details of Guaidó’s return are being kept secret. “He can’t just come and go,” embattled President Nicolás Maduro said last week.
What happens now? While it’s unclear whether the Venezuelan opposition can sustain its momentum, the U.S. is already reportedly preparing plans for emergency aid if Maduro’s government falls.
