PRESIDENT Nicolas Maduro has ordered the closure of Venezuela’s embassy and consulates in the US after Washington threw its weight behind opposition leader Juan Guaido who declared himself interim president.

The call came only a day after Caracas severed diplomatic ties with Washington and ordered all US diplomats to leave Venezuela within 72 hours. During a lengthy speech at a special session at the Supreme Court, the Venezuelan president censured US President Donald Trump for seeking to orchestrate a coup against his government and backing the self-declared leader.

‘I believe there’s no doubt that Donald Trump wants to impose a de facto government, unconstitutional government, a coup against the people and democracy in Venezuela,’ Maduro said. ‘There’s no doubt that it is Donald Trump with his craziness of believing he’s the world’s police,’ he said. At least 10 countries, including Russia, Turkey and Iran, have expressed their support for Maduro and condemned outside interference in Venezuela.

• Under the fierce diplomatic, economic and media attacks from the United States and their Venezuelan subordinates, the Venezuelan people took to the streets to express their recognition and support for the only legitimate and constitutional president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros. The mobilization took the streets of Caracas, while the President of the National Assembly (which remains in contempt), Juan Guaidó, proclaimed himself President of the Republic, in an absolutely illegal and unconstitutional act.

President Trump, via social networks, publicly recognised this self-proclamation. The day ended with a massive public act where President Maduro expressed his rejection of US interference and decreed the rupture of diplomatic relations with the United States.
The press team of the Revolutionary Bolivar and Zamora Current (CBRZ) was in the streets documenting the massive mobilisation.
