On Thursday, Vox’s Carlos Meza released a Video on its YouTube channel comparing President Trump to Latin American dictator Hugo Chavez. This in addition to flatly calling the President a “Threat to democracy” in the same video.
Following the recent call from the Editor-in-chief of Vox to “Not trust the government so long as Trump is President”, Maza went full tin foil hat after releasing a video titled “The decline of American democracy won’t be televised”. The video, which compares Republican Donald Trump to the socialist Chavez, attempts to prove that Trump is attempting to destroy American democratic institutions.
Meza goes on to rant about all the things that he believes the President has done, saying:
“Trump shows a deep distrust of America’s democratic institutions. He lashes out at judges, calls journalists the enemy of the people, accuses watchdog agencies of conspiring against him, [and] he questions the legitimacy of an election that he won. His white house stonewalls reporters to avoid answering questions, is suspicious of the mechanisms that limit his authority, and he encourages his supporters to be. That is a catastrophic thing to be happening in a democracy. It’s how democratic backtracking starts.”
