Venezuela Govt Hits Back At Trump Over Statement During State of the Union Address
The Venezuelan Government of President Nicolás Maduro has again shown that it would not give in to any pressure from the United States of America to dictate how to run the country.
The Government of Maduro through the Embassy of Venezuela in Nigeria released a statement to denounce some utterances of the United States President, Donald Trump while delivery the State of the Union address recently.
Trump had said that the incumbent president of Venezuela, Maduro is “an illegitimate ruler, a tyrant who brutalizes his people. But Maduro’s grip of tyranny will be smashed and broken.”
Venezuela Government in the statement made available to P.M. EXPRESS in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria through the country’s Ambassador to Nigeria, His Excellency Davies Nieves Velasquez said that “the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela strongly rejects and complies with denouncing before the international community, the intrusive expressions and the rude interference in its internal affairs made by Donald Trump during his annual address before the US Congress.
“In an agonizing effort to revive the already unsuccessful strategy of government change by force, attached to a premeditated non-surprising script, amid a quasi-circus pre-election show and making use of a speech full of lies, chauvinism and supremacist statements, Trump offends and disrespects the Venezuelan people, by launching violent threats against its integrity and against the constitutional, democratic and legitimate Government of President Nicolás Maduro Moros.
“The American Head of State, in his delirious and arrogant speech, in which he seemed to resurrect the already obsolete manifest destiny, reiterated his contempt for peace, for international law, for life and in particular for the sovereignty of Venezuela, counting on the shameful complicity of those who are dedicated to betray the Homeland, in exchange for the humiliating crumbs that he throws at them, depending on his mood, his Boss, Mr. Trump.
“Quoting the Liberator Simón Bolívar, ‘The Venezuelan people will never allow the United States to plague our continent (Our America) with misery, in the name of a false freedom’.
“Venezuela has demonstrated this by far, not giving an inch of ground before blackmail, threat and interference, promoted, not by a head of state, but by a superb charlatan who fancies himself as an emperor, who intends to dominate his country and the entire world through deception, extortion, ignorance and force.
“Venezuela is and will be irrevocably free and independent. Only the Venezuelan people determine and will determine their present and their victorious, sovereign and socialist future.”
