Maduro: Venezuela Election Results Send Brutal Message to Trump

CARACAS – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said on Tuesday that the results of the gubernatorial elections held last Sunday in his country, and in which Chavismo scored a runaway victory, send a brutal message to his US counterpart, Donald Trump.

“Our people have sent a brutal message to the imperialist government of Donald Trump, his regional allies and the local right,” the president said during a press conference with international media at the presidential palace of Miraflores.

The ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) won the elections in 17 of the 23 states in the country, according to the official report by the National Electoral Council (CNE), while the MUD opposition coalition, which won in five states, refuses to accept the results.

Maduro said Tuesday that the result is “the product of the Venezuelan people voting according to their conscience,” and added that despite the deep economic crisis the country has been going through over the past three years, “today there are new values” at the command of the Bolivarian Revolution.

“No economic war nor inflation inflicted on us will ever make this country surrender,” he said.

The Chavista leader said the MUD “went in for violence” this year by inciting protests between April and July, protests that left 120 people dead, because “right-wing extremists are back in power in Washington,” a reference to the Republican administration of magnate Donald Trump.

As a result, he said his government is facing “destabilization, international aggression and a coup d’etat organized by the United States and its “allies.” which plan to “bring a coalition of countries to intervene militarily in Venezuela.”
