The Venezuelan government is not going to abandon a controversial plan for a new constitution.

The socialist president Nicolás Maduro is planning a new body in the life to call to rewrite the constitution. He passes as other institutions such as the parliament. There are members of the opposition are now in the majority. They have strongly opposed the plan reversed.
The American president Donald Trump called his Venezuelan colleague Monday to refrain from the plan. If that doesn’t happen, then there are economic sanctions.
Moncada showed Tuesday not impressed by that warning, that he was “an insolent spectre of a xenophobic and racist government” called.
