‘I don’t want to be a traitor’ – Maduro defies US pressure on Venezuela

Via RT…

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has said that he will not betray his country by yielding to Washington’s desire for regime change in Caracas, telling RT that he will not let history remember him as a traitor.

“I do not care how I’m going to go down in history, I’m not going to be a traitor, a weak one, like a man who turned his back on his historic commitments to his people,” he said in an exclusive interview with RT Spanish.

“I take advantage of every means of communication to ask the whole world to denounce and stop the madness of Donald Trump. Venezuela is never going to give in,” he told RT.

He added that “a wave of conscience” globally will lead to a “repudiation” of the US president.

Maduro said that the Venezuelan people were prepared to defend their “sacred” land from an US military invasion, but emphasized that he “prayed to God” that such a conflict will never occur. Trump’s “military aggression” must be rejected so that “peace prevails.”

President Maduro is a brave man, a great patriot, just like Hugo Chavez was. I am sure that he will be able to save Venezuela from US invasion and becoming just another US colony.
