Breitbart reporter Ashley Oliver recently sat down with President Alejandro Giammattei of Guatemala.

Giammattei told Breitbart News that he would never consider purchasing oil from socialist Venezuela, calling such a deal with the Maduro regime akin to “nourishing the devil.”

Joe Biden is currently considering purchasing oil from the brutal communist Maduro regime rather than drilling for more oil here at home.

Giammattei has also been critical of the Biden regime. The Guatemalan president blamed Joe Biden for the historic border crisis at the US border with Mexico. reported:

Reports began surfacing in March, later confirmed by Venezuelan socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro, that Biden had sent a delegation to Venezuela for talks with the regime. America does not recognize Maduro as the president of Venezuela given that he formally lost that title after a sham election in 2019. Maduro confirmed again this week that the Biden administration representatives had met with a senior regime official in Caracas.

Giammattei, a hardline conservative, is visiting the U.S. for several engagements, including a meeting with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a leadership summit at the Organization of American States, and an address to the 2022 International Religious Freedom Summit…

…Giammetti is one of a dwindling number of conservative leaders in the Americas after the elections of leftists Biden, Chilean President Gabriel Boric, Argentine President Alberto Fernández, Colombian President-elect Gustavo Petro, Peruvian President Pedro Castillo, and Bolivian President Luis Arce. In Central America, Guatemala shares the region with one of the most brutal dictatorships in the hemisphere, the communist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua.
