In his speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, President Donald Trump ruffled the feathers of many world leaders when he attacked socialism as a “failed ideology.”
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” Trump said.
Trump paused for a moment for applause — an applause that didn’t come as world leaders were not amused that he attacked the fundamentally flawed ideology that many of them are actively trying to implement in their own countries.

The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. (Applause) From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure.
Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares for their safety, their interests and their well-being, including their prosperity.
