  1. What you are saying is ten bags of foolishness. You just blowing hot air,America is one of the richest countries on the planet why do they accept help from Venezuela. Fool no matter how big and mighty you are people don’t refuse help and please tell the truth where the 5 million dollars came from that Maduro sent to the states.

  2. James still doesn’t change the fact that your comment at this time was heartless and very insensitive. We are talking about the immediate lives of HUMAN BEINGS needing immediate relief. No need to get all in your feelings and write a novel bc I’m not reading it and I’m over you and your ignorance. Signing off and reclaiming my time … BYE!!!

  3. Dear Sir, you are missing your ability to be reasonable and logical. Since when being poor means we can’t make contributions to others in need regardless to their nationality or the wealth of the nations in question?

  4. You could not put it any better SVG have some heart less People that does not think country first then politics.
