The Trump administration’s current and future behavior in Bolivia can best be forecast by its strong support for the military coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Evo Morales on November 10. And no one disputes that Morales was democratically elected to his term that began in 2015.

The OAS did this by repeatedly claiming, falsely, or implying, that the Morales government committed fraud in the October 20 election.
