A nationwide anti-Trump signature drive took place in Venezuela over the weekend to protest the stepped-up US sanctions, a government source said on Sunday.

Called “No more Trump,” the drive kicked off on Saturday with the signatures of President Nicolas Maduro and his wife Cilia Flores, and continued on Sunday at central squares around the country, including the capital city of Caracas, reports AP.

“We agreed that at every main square in our country ... there will be a signature drive,” said Dario Vivas, vice president of events and mobilisations for the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela.

The campaign serves to condemn the latest White House measures to further cut off the Venezuelan government’s access to capital in a bid to oust Maduro from power.
