Venezuelan leader to Trump: "'Get your pig hands out of here"

Political Turmoil Sends Brazil ETFs Reeling

Political Turmoil Sends Brazil ETFs Reeling

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Friday bashed his United States counterpart Donald Trump, in a speech reported by national radio, telling him to stop meddling in the country's home affairs.

Speaking Friday, Maduro told supporters Trump should stop intervening in Venezuela's affairs.

The Trump administration is imposing sanctions on members of Venezuela's Supreme Court following a series of rulings that the US says has usurped power from the nation's opposition-controlled congress and sparked a deadly wave of unrest.

The deal was announced after a phone conversation between Maduro and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The remarks come a day after the Trump administration slapped sanctions against eight members of Venezuela's Supreme Court, accusing them of damaging the nation's democracy.

Ford to cut 1400 jobs in North America, Asia
Year-to-date, shares of Ford are down nearly 10%, and have struggled to regain their footing under current CEO Mark Fields. As of mid-morning, Ford shares were off by more than 1 percent, to around $10.83, continuing a almost two-week slide.

The announcement followed a series of rulings since mid-2016 in which the court usurped the National Assembly's powers in support of Maduro.

The action marked the second time the Trump administration has stripped high-level Venezuelan officials of their USA assets and banned Americans from any business dealings with them.

Earlier Thursday, Trump expressed dismay about Venezuela's troubles, asking aloud how a nation sitting atop the world's largest oil reserves could be stricken by so much poverty and unrest.

The ruling was later partially reversed amid a backlash of global criticism, but it sparked a protest movement that has continued for almost two months and on Thursday claimed another victim, bringing the death toll to 45. They will be marching against Maduro's push to rewrite the 1999 constitution. Maduro has said he had no prior knowledge of the Supreme Court ruling against congress in March, pointing to the objections raised by Venezuela's chief prosecutor as proof the country's institutions operate independently. Those decisions have since been partially reversed.

They have to be treated as a serious insurgency problem and dealt with accordingly". "What was known already in informed circles has only been proved".

"It's not necessary, pertinent, or convenient to carry out a transformation of the state in the terms that a new constitution could imply", she wrote.

Mr Trump's comments and United States sanctions against Venezuelan officials played to the government's longstanding accusations of USA imperialism. Members of the country's Supreme Court of Justice have exacerbated the situation by consistently interfering with the legislative branch's authority. In February, the US ordered sanctions against Vice President Tareck El Aissami, accusing him of playing a major role in worldwide drug trafficking. "Get your pig hands out of here!"

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced Thursday his government had secured a major wheat deal with Russian Federation. But near-daily anti-government protests were triggered by the ruling and have continued across the country, with more than 40 people killed.

Fresh clashes erupted later in eastern Caracas as Maduro's opponents staged their latest protest marches against him.
