Bolivia's former president Evo Morales has departed for Mexico after accepting an offer of political asylum in the wake of what he has described as a "coup" against him by the country's military and opposition.
President Trump said Monday the resignation of Bolivia's president sends a message to "illegitimate regimes" in Venezuela and Nicaragua that the Western Hemisphere is closer to becoming "completely democratic". Some said opposition supporters had threatened their families.

Ebrard on Sunday had decried the military's intervention to push Morales aside, saying it was reminiscent of Latin America's bloody coups of the 20th century. Supporters of the former president are rallying to oppose protesters who had called for his resignation.
Morales stepped down Sunday following weeks of massive protests over a disputed presidential election, but the resignations of every constitutionally designated successor left unclear who will take his place and how.
A US official said President Donald Trump's administration has no objection to Mexico's asylum offer to Morales, given the hope his absence could help stabilize Bolivia.
The United Nations and the Organization of American States (OAS) earlier voiced fears of a breakdown in security in a country that appeared increasingly rudderless after dozens of officials and ministers resigned along with Morales, some seeking refuge in foreign embassies.
The senator set to succeed him as interim president, Jeanine Anez, pledged to call fresh elections in the troubled South American country.
His almost 14-year presidency abruptly ended Sunday, hours after he had accepted calls for a new election by an Organization of American States team that found a "heap of observed irregularities" in the October 20 election whose official result showed Morales getting just enough votes to avoid a runoff against a united opposition.

Donald Trump Jr. talk marked by anger over no Q&A
Donald Trump Jr just had a disastrous appearance at UCLA this weekend while attempting to promote his new book "Triggered". Guilfoyle is said to have later shouted at the crowd, "You're not making your parents proud by being rude and disruptive".
The bilateral relationship suffered a major hit when Morales expelled the U.S. ambassador and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency a decade ago, accusing them of intervening in internal affairs. Morales also claimed that his home was attacked.
Morales' vice-president also resigned, as did the Senate president, who was next in line.
"We call on the National Assembly to convene, to provide the quorum required and to determine a constitutional transition to new elections as soon as possible", the official said on condition of anonymity. The main backer of the OAS, the USA government, proclaimed that MAS had "stolen" the elections, while the European Union had also called for a second round.
Mr. Morales himself lashed out at political opponents, calling it a return to the bleak era of coups by Latin American militaries. The only other official listed by the constitution as a successor, the head of the lower house, already had resigned.
"I resign my post as president", the leftist Morales said Sunday in a televised address.
The leadership crisis had escalated in the hours leading up Morales' resignation.
Under Bolivian law, the head of the Senate would normally take over provisionally.
And while the result in last month's election showed Morales winning by just over 10 percentage points, allowing him to avoid a runoff he was poised to lose, Bolivians and election monitors had suspicions.
