Pres. Maduro: “I Am Leader Of A Free People, Impose Whatever Sanctions You Like”

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has defended himself against recent sanctions imposed by the United States.

In a public address, Maduro declared, “Impose whatever sanctions you like but I am the leader of the free people.”

The comments come after the U.S. Treasury Department announced it will impose sanctions directly on President Maduro.

The sanctions mean Maduro’s assets subject to U.S. jurisdiction are now frozen and people from the U.S. are prohibited from dealing with the head of state.

Maduro lambasted the sanctions as an “imperialist attack” against Venezuela’s National Constituent Assembly, ANC.

“Why are they sanctioning me? Because I called democratic elections so that people can freely vote for the National Constituent Assembly,” he said. “I feel proud to be sanctioned Mr Imperialist Donald Trump.”

Maduro assured that pressure from the United States will not derail the ANC.

“Venezuela will not be silenced, nothing and nobody will stop the National Constituent Assembly,” he said.

According to electoral authorities, over 8 million people voted in Venezuela’s National Constituent Assembly election Sunday — a turnout of over 41 percent.

Maduro argued the mass turnout was an indication that the people of Venezuela were committed to peace and see the ANC as a solution to the country’s current political crisis.

“I will be happy to meet him and shake his hand but Trump is making the biggest mistake of his life with Venezuela because Venezuela is the key to solidarity in the region,” said Maduro.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
