Trump crushes Venezuela’s ‘faithfully implemented’ socialism, Nicolas Maduro calls him ‘the new Hitler’

President Donald Trump urged world leaders Tuesday to help restore “democracy and political freedoms” in Venezuela, singling out the South American country as a vivid example of the failures of socialism during his speech to the United Nations.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro responded by calling Trump  “the new Hitler” of international politics.

“The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing. Their democratic institutions are being destroyed. This situation is completely unacceptable and we cannot stand by and watch,” Trump said. “I ask every country represented here today to be prepared to do more to address this very real crisis.”

“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented,” said Trump.

“From the Soviet Union to Cuba, Venezuela — wherever through socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish, devastation, and failure,” added Trump. “Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems. America stands with every person living under a brutal regime.”

“The magnate thinks he is the owner of the world, but no one threatens Venezuela,” said Maduro, who did not attend the annual gathering of world leaders and diplomats.

Maduro also accused Trump of threatening to assassinate him, even though the U.S. leader did no such thing. Trump did threaten to build upon the U.S.’s sweeping economic sanctions if Maduro “persists on a path to impose authoritarian rule.”

“The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing. Their democratic institutions are being destroyed. This situation is completely unacceptable and we cannot stand by and watch,” Trump said. “I ask every country represented here today to be prepared to do more to address this very real crisis.”

The media has rebranded the socialism and failed dictatorship, using the terms “Recession and currency controls” as the nation is now ravaged by shortages of everything from flour to vaccines and medicines. The crisis is so severe that 75 per cent of the country’s population has lost an average of 19 pounds in weight, a study by three Venezuelen universities has found.

Tens of thousands of Venezuelans have fled the failed nation and Brazilian President Michel Temer highlighted the Venezuelan exodus in his own speech and declared that, “in South America, there is no longer room for alternatives to democracy.”

Newsweek covered the reaction to the speech, how the world leaders dissed and laughed at President Trump’s attack on socialism, giving cover to the failed economic practice:

Most industrialized countries, for example, have implemented universal health care. Moreover, Norway was recently ranked the happiest country in the world, and it pointed to its strong state-support programs as crucial to achieving this accolade. Apparently, people like to know those around them have their back if times get tough.

Several other Scandinavian countries, including Denmark, Iceland and Sweden, were also among the top 10 happiest countries in the world, according to the most recent figures. Like Norway, all of these countries have robust social welfare programs, though none have implemented full-blown socialism.

The U.S., however, can’t even make it into the top 10 happiest countries. It’s ranked at No. 14.

No, there was no disclaimer about the lack of military budgets, reliance on the oil industry or how white and homogenous those “successful” countries are despite the rise in crime rates with the influx of Muslim refugees.
