Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro shrugged off U.S. sanctions imposed on him Monday, telling supporters,
"I don't take orders from the empire.
Keep your sanctions, Donald Trump!" The sanctions are in response to Sunday's election in Venezuela for a new legislative assembly that has the power to rewrite the country's constitution.
The election has been called a sham by several world leaders and the Venezuelan opposition, and the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control said in a statement the sanctions freeze all of Maduro's assets subjects to U.S.
jurisdiction and also ban Americans from doing business with him.
Maduro said the U.S. has "hatred" for his government, and had a pointed message for President Trump.
"In the United States, it's possible to become president with 3 million votes less than your opponent," he said. "What a tremendous democracy!"
