Venezuelan President Maduro in an interview said that the U.S. coup in the country is a racist attack by White Extremists and KKK in the White House.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said the United States is trying to create a humanitarian crisis in the Bolivarian Republic and now using humanitarian aid as a mean of justification for military intervention.
“Venezuela is a country that has dignity, and the United States has intended to create a humanitarian crisis in order to justify military intervention, "humanitarian". And this is part of that show,” President Nicolas Maduro said, during an interview with the BBC Monday.
“That's the reason that we, with dignity, tell them that the minuscule crumbs that they intend to bring with toxic food, with leftovers that they have, we tell them no - Venezuela has dignity, Venezuela produces and works and our people do not beg from anyone.”
He called the U.S. President a “white supremacist” who with other right-wing extremists in the White House are waging a war against Venezuela.
"It's a political war, of the United States empire, of the interests of the extreme right that today is governing, of the Ku Klux Klan, that rules the White House, to take over Venezuela," said the democratically elected leader of the South American country.
The United States supported the failed coup attempt by lawmaker Juan Guaido who illegally declared himself the “interim president” of Venezuela on Jan. 23.
When questioned of hunger in Venezuela, the president said it is a creation by the Western media which are only interested in showing the 4.4 percent of extreme poverty and also a fault of the U.S. imposed sanctions on the country.
Calling out the fakeness of the humanitarian aid for “hungry” people of Venezuela, he said, “It's very simple if you want to help Venezuela, release the billions of dollars in resources that belong to us. So don't come with a cheap show, a show of indignity, of humiliation, where they offer $20m dollars in food that is toxic, and rotten.”
He also called out BBC itself along with other Western Media like CNN who have a pre-conceived notion about Venezuela and they report false data because, “because you are in the script, to intervene in our country.”
"The extremists of the White House have taken it upon themselves to carry out a coup in Venezuela."
President Maduro said that the West would not be so interested in Venezuela if it’s main economic source would be something else but it is because of oil and gold they are being attacked.
