Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro spoke out in defiance against US President Donald Trump’s resolution that would heighten sanctions on Venezuela for alleged “human rights abuses.”

He then went onto highlight “fascism” in the Washington and Europe.

The resolution, which calls on the Organization of American States, OAS, to suspend Venezuela, was unanimously passed by the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, with the House of Representatives expected to review the bill in the coming weeks, Telesur reported.

“In spite of U.S. aggressions, our people are united in saying ‘you must respect Venezuela,’” Maduro said Wednesday during a government summit in Cumana.

“We will never be anyone’s colony ever again,” he then went onto passionately say.

Maduro said that Trump’s “dangerous” political tendency is being replicated in Europe.

“I warn the whole world about the emergence of this dangerous segregationist, racist and xenophobic political current that threatens to attack the peoples of the world, to divide humanity more, and to create more wars around the world,” Maduro said, HispanTV reports.

“It’s a band of extremists who are taking over power in the most important countries of the so-called developed world … which, like Hitler, creates the supremacy of the white European race over the rest of the peoples of the world. It’s worrying,” he said.

The US added Venezuelan Vice President Tareck El Aissami earlier this month to the sanctions based on unsubstantiated drug trafficking allegations.
