Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is accusing Donald Trump of seeking a regime change in Venezuela as a way to divert attention from calls for his impeachment. Maduro made the statement on the return of his trip to Russia where he met President Vladimir Putin.
But his attention was focused on New York, where Mr Trump this week held a meeting at the UN General Assembly with Latin American leaders to the Venezuelan situation.
Maduro said the images of Mr Trump's disgusting face as he spoke to the lapdogs of US imperialism is an embarrassment that reflects the US President's fatal obsession with ousting him.
Trump has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader and this week celebrated an agreement reached by 16 Latin American nations to slap sanctions on senior Maduro regime officials.
