Venezuela recognizes other candidate as US President

CARACAS (Rooters agency) – In a move widely applauded in less economically developed parts of Africa, Asia, and Latin America, the Venezuela government today announced that it was withdrawing recognition of “usurper Ronald Dump” as President of the United States.

In an official statement, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry said that Venezuela recognizes as “the legitimate President” of the United States Hermione N. Clement, the candidate whom Ronald Dump claims to have defeated in the US 2016 presidential election.

Dump seized the Presidency, the Venezuelan statement said, “even though the official count showed that candidate Clement had received almost 3 million more votes than Dump.” Dump had relied on “clearly anti-democratic measures that counted the votes of his supporters as more valuable than votes for the other candidate.”

Asked by reporters whether Venezuela’s position was weakened by the fact that Hermione N. Clement has not claimed the Presidency for herself, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson replied, “Her reticence is hardly surprising. Both before and after the election, Dump repeatedly threatened to jail Ms. Clement.

And he also publicly declared his intention to use tortures such as waterboarding and worse against ‘terrorists’ and to kill their children. Since he has accused Ms. Clement’s party of seeking to allow terrorists into the United States, it takes no stretch of the imagination to see the usurper using such measures against Ms. Clement and those who back her legitimate claim to the Presidency.”

While the Venezuelan announcement has received widespread public acclaim in the Third World, it it not clear how many governments will follow Venezuela’s lead on this question. In many of the countries where the US government is most despised, the local government was installed with the aid of Dump or one of his predecessors.
