Venezuela to defeat crazed minority of opponents: Maduro

Speaking at the sixth anniversary of the death of his predecessor and mentor, Hugo Chavez, on Tuesday, Maduro said that Venezuela would ignore those who incite “hatred.” “While a crazed minority continues with their hatred, with their bitterness, it’s their problem. We won’t pay attention to them, compatriots!” he said. “Let the crazy minority continue with their bitterness, we’ll defeat them. For Chavez, we’ll do it. For the great history of the country, we’ll do it.” Maduro’s comments came as a 35-year-old opposition figure who has only recently emerged on the country’s political scene and who has declared himself “interim president” returned to Venezuela after defying a ban on leaving the country. Juan Guaido vowed to step up his efforts against Maduro after returning on Monday, calling for mass protests and offering his backing to a potential public sector strike. Maduro said his government would be the “victorious” side in Guaido’s “boy-like game” of power. The Venezuelan president has accused Guaido of trying to launch a coup with help from the United States. Maduro also called for “anti-imperialist marches” on Saturday, to coincide with anti-government protests organized by Guaido’s supporters. ‘US considering new sanctions against Venezuela’ Meanwhile, the US said it was considering imposing new sanctions against the Venezuelan government to pressure Maduro to hand over power to Guaido. “We’re looking at new sanctions, new measures, to tighten our grip on Maduro’s financial wherewithal, to deny his regime the money that they need to stay in power,” US National Security Adviser John Bolton said told Fox Business Network on Tuesday. Washington has already imposed sanctions on the country’s oil sector and announced asset freezes and travel bans targeting top government officials. The administration of US President Donald Trump has recognized Guaido’s self-proclamation of “interim presidency.”
