Venezuela's Maduro Calls Trump the "New Hitler"

By Carlos Camacho

CARACAS -- U.S. President Donald Trump is “the new Hitler” embattled Venezuelan head of state Nicolas Maduro said Tuesday, during a televised speech in Caracas in which he also sought to tie Trump to violent Venezuelan street protests as well as to U.S. white supremacy groups.

Earlier, Trump had savaged Maduro and his administration during a speech before the General Assembly of the United Nations. He mentioned Venezuela eight times, making it the core issue of his intervention, and Iraq only once, as he promised to bring democracy back to the oil rich nation, arguing that Maduro had inflicted untold suffering on a “once thriving nation” and that he had also sequestered the will of the Venezuelan people by imposing a fraudulent, supra-Constitutional body.

Maduro clearly was not flattered by the attention. Trump, “the new Hitler”, is “a blowhard” promoting “racial supremacy”, Maduro told an audience clad in the red t-shirts and baseball caps of the Venezuelan Bolivarian Revolution.

“May Donald Trump swallow his words!”, Maduro thundered, his voice getting hoarser and hoarser as the speech of more than one hour progressed. “The Bolivarian Revolution will always be here!”

Maduro challenged Trump’s human rights record, saying “I have never given the order to bomb poor peoples” as Trump had done in Syria.

The U.N. said last week that Maduro’s troops were involved in crimes against humanity during four months of heavy handed repression which resulted in 123 demonstrators and security forces killed April to August as well as 600 political prisoners.

“Why don’t we talk about the Guantanamo jail?” Maduro offered. “Anywhere you want, any time you want and any way you want we can debate about that”.

“MADE IN USA”

“We won’t accept a relationship of subordination,” Maduro added at one point in his speech, before returning to the recent, and violent, protests against his rule, when he, again, said the U.S. was behind them.

“They had a mark behind them that read ‘Made in the USA’”, Maduro claimed. The protests were part of a strategy, still ongoing, “to justify the assassination of the President (himself) because he was a dictator.”

Maduro also termed Trump “the Emperor Magnate” and questioned the U.S. President’s real-state dealings in New York, claiming he had “blackmailed” and “cheated” in order to attain control of properties in Manhattan.
