Bolivian President Evo Morales.

LA PAZ, Bolivia.- Bolivian President Evo Morales, rejected the warning of his American counterpart Donald Trump to curb the credits of international agencies to the South American country, for its insufficient collaboration in the fight against trafficking in persons.

It’s another intimidation, another blackmail, Morales said in a public event on Sunday in reference to a recent Trump memorandum in which he warns to freeze American aid, and veto credits from agencies like the International Monetary Fund to several countries.

We are not a beggar state, I will not reach out my hand, Morales said in the city of Oruro, 180 kilometers south of La Paz.

In turn, Bolivian Vice-President Alvaro Garcia said the White House warning does not recognize Bolivia’s efforts against trafficking in people and reducing child labor.
