In the second segment, author Dan Kovalik joins the show to talk about his forthcoming book "The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela: How the U.S. Is Orchestrating a Coup for Oil", the history of US' colonial relationship with Venezuela, US efforts to take over Venezuelan oil production, and why so many mistakenly Americans believe Donald Trump is fighting for human rights and democracy across Latin America.
