Maduro calls Trump's speech "nazi-style"

19 February 2019

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday saying Trump's speech was "nazi-style" and said the U.S. president acted as if he were the owner of Venezuela.

On Monday Trump warned members of Venezuela's military who remain loyal to Maduro that they are risking their future and their lives and urged them to allow humanitarian aid into the country. Speaking to a cheering crowd mostly of Venezuelan and Cuban immigrants in Miami, Trump said if the Venezuelan military continues supporting Maduro, "you will find no safe harbour, no easy exit and no way out. You'll lose everything."
