Venezuela's Maduro says he's cutting off relations with US

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday said he's cutting off relations with the U.S., and giving U.S. diplomats 72 hours to abandon the country.

The socialist leader ordered a review of Venezuela's relationship with the U.S. after the Trump administration officially recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as the nation's interim president.

The move comes one day after Vice President Mike Pence sent a recorded video of himself to Venezuelans referring to Maduro as "a dictator with no legitimate claim to power."

"He has never won the presidency in a free and fair election, and has maintained his grip on power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him," Pence said in the video.

Hours after the U.S. video was sent, Maduro spoke on state television, saying that Pence hit a 200-hit low in relations between the two countries, by authorizing a coup.
