Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro told President Trump to stop "meddling" in his country's affairs Friday after the U.S. implemented sanctions against the South American country.
"Enough meddling ... Go home, Donald Trump. Get out of Venezuela," Maduro yelled in a televised speech. "Get your dirty hands out of here."
The socialist leader's condemnation comes a day after the White House imposed sanctions on the chief judge and seven members of Venezuela's Supreme Court. The move was intended as punishment for invalidating the opposition-led Congress earlier this year, a move that was later rescinded.
Maduro's administration has targeted street protesters since November in an attempt to shut down any opposition to his government.
"The extreme positions of a government just starting off only confirmed the discriminatory, racist, xenophobic and genocidal nature of U.S. elites against humanity and its own people, which has now been heightened by this new administration which asserts white Anglo-Saxon supremacy," the Venezuelan government said in a statement.
