Venezuela‘s President Nicolás Maduro has vowed to defeat a “crazed minority” that wants to remove him from power. In a challenge to opposition leader Juan Guaidó, he called for “anti-imperialist marches” on Saturday to coincide with anti-government protests. Mr Maduro’s comments were the first since Mr Guaidó defied him and returned to the country on Monday. Separately, the US said it was considering imposing new sanctions to pressure Mr Maduro to give up power.
