Trump Says Sending Military to Venezuela ‘an Option’: CBS UK recognises Juan Guaido as interim President of Venezuela

The Venezuelan government has emphatically rejected European Union member states' decision to back opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president, saying Caracas will now revise its relationship with these countries.

Another journalist, Ben Norton, accused the company of catering to "U.S. government interests:" Twitter is now removing thousands of accounts supposedly linked to Venezuela's sovereign government.

"I don't accept ultimatums from anybody", Maduro told Spanish TV channel La Sexta in an interview broadcast late Sunday.

A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said Trudeau spoke to Guaido about the need for countries to send a clear message about "the illegitimacy of the Maduro regime" and to ensure that Venezuela has free and fair presidential elections. Furthermore, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian stated that Guaido had the ability and the legitimacy to organize new presidential elections.

In a statement, Venezuela's government said it "expresses its most energetic rejection of the decision adopted by some European governments, in which they officially submit to the US administration's strategy to overthrow the legitimate government of President Nicolas Maduro".

Nine European nations have now joined the United States in recognising opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's interim president, heightening a global showdown over President Nicolas Maduro's rule.

He said Spain, which has a large Venezuelan community, is also working on a humanitarian aid program for Venezuela, where shortages of basic items are acute.

Sanchez added he wanted to spearhead a plan of humanitarian aid for Venezuela in the European Union and United Nations.

Maduro into calling snap elections by the end of Sunday, an appeal he ignored.

Their meeting comes amid massive protests in Venezuela aimed at pressing Maduro, the country's socialist leader, to vacate the presidency.

"Handing out ultimatums, sanctions, freezing Venezuelan goods..." Moscow has labeled the attempts by other countries to legitimize the usurpation of power in Venezuela as meddling into the country's internal affairs, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

The embattled Maduro, whose years in power have seen Venezuela sink into an economic crisis that the United Nations estimates has led as many as three million Venezuelans to flee the country and brought on widespread food shortages, has refused to step down despite accusations that his country's most recent election was rigged.

Guaido says up to 300,000 people are "at risk of death" in Venezuela for want of humanitarian aid.

Canada and the Lima Group have backed Guaido, the opposition leader who's the head of Venezuela's legislature, as Maduro's replacement.

The United States also wants Maduro gone. "I hope to receive a positive response", he said.

"They are trying to corner us with ultimatums to force us into an extreme situation of confrontation", Maduro said.

Several countries, including the United States, Lima Group members (excluding Mexico), Australia, Albania, Georgia and Israel, as well as the Organization of American States, recognized him as president.
