Facing off against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, U.S.-backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó said the discontented want to be on the side of the constitution.

"There's not only discontentment, but also the willingness to change the situation in Venezuela," Guaidó told Fox Business' "Trish Regan Primetime" in an exclusive interview Tuesday night. "Soon they will be on the side of the constitution."

The United States has recognized Guaidó as the legitimate president of Venezuela over Maduro, who was "illegitimately" elected to a second six-year term last year.

"This is the last chapter of change, the last chapter of a nightmare for many citizens who were forced to migrate," Guaidó told Regan. " . . . We're waking up from that nightmare, and we're waking up to dream of a prosperous Venezuela."

The State Department announced Tuesday that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had turned over the Venezuelan bank accounts in the U.S. to Guaidó, who is under investigation by Maduro's flailing regime for anti-government "violent acts."

"Yes, they have threatened my physical integrity, my family's, and unfortunately, I'm not the only one," Guaido told Regan. ". . . We remain cohesive and mobilized and united because this is our goal – to rebuild Venezuela."

National Security Adviser John Bolton has vowed American protection for Guaidó's regime.

"We denounce the illegitimate former Venezuelan Attorney General's threats against President Juan Guaidó," Bolton tweeted Tuesday afternoon. "Let me reiterate – there will be serious consequences for those who attempt to subvert democracy and harm Guaidó."
