1 U.S. needs a pro-Latin America president
Rawwas--Mohammad (Marketing Faculty), Leitner--Gabrielle (Student--2017)
Northern Iowan 116:27, p.03
12/12/2019 On November 12, 2019, Evo Morale was deposed in a right-wing military coup that saw the fascist Jeanine Anez rise to power as the "interim president." The military coup was triggered by a report from the Organization of American States, which questioned the integrity of the recent election. No evidence was provided in the report to substantiate the claims made, and even those claims do not implicate the validity of the election. Morales was clearly the favorable option, and in any democracy, that should be honored.
