The Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, today (10 Apr) called on the United Nations "to revoke the credentials of Venezuela's representative to the United Nations, recognize interim president Juan Guaidó, and seat the representative of the free Venezuelan government without delay". Maduro has noted the humanitarian assistance his country has been receiving from its long-time allies, such as China, Russia, Turkey and India as well as the The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
The vice president also announced that the administration was pledging to dispatch $61 million in additional humanitarian aid to the more than 3 million Venezuelans who have fled the crisis-stricken country in recent years because of widespread food and medicine shortages.
When asked if the United States thought it had enough backing to oust Maduro's government at the United Nations, Pence said: "I think the momentum is on the side of freedom".
After the Security Council meeting, Pence told reporters he believed that the momentum is on the side of the USA position.
