“President Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela taunted President Trump in response to the sanctions the U.S. placed on the country on Monday, reports Reuters.
In doing so, the Venezuelan president took aim at an apparent soft spot-Hillary Clinton`s popular vote win in the 2016 election.
Maduro said, `In the United States it`s possible to become president with 3 million votes less than your opponent. What a tremendous democracy!`
`I don`t take orders from the empire. Bring on more sanctions, Donald Trump,` Maduro added.”
Venezuela`s Sunday election, which granted Maduro power to rewrite the nation`s constitution, and basically turned the country into a one-party state has been condemned by the civilized world.
Sanctions are ineffectual against tyrants and dictators, it`s not surprising that Maduro is taunting Trump to “bring on more sanctions.”
Maduro makes an excellent point, how dare Trump who received 3 million less votes than Hillary lecture Maduro on the finer points of democracy.
Trump has too many internal problems to be meddling around in the affairs of another country.
I`m not going to expend any energy protesting that election farce that just took place in Venezuela; I`m devoting my time and energy as a writer advocating for the impeachment of Trump and the restoral of democracy in America.
