Trump threatens military option in Venezuela

"We have many options for Venezuela and by the way, I'm not going to rule out a military option", Trump volunteered, adding, "A military operation and military option is certainly something that we could pursue". "It's not only the United States putting forth pressure on Maduro, but that he's getting it from all sides of the region as well". Maduro recently offered to meet with Trump at the United Nations to diplomatically resolve sanctions the US recently leveled at Venezuela.

Reuters reported Friday that the Pentagon said the White House hadn't given it any orders on Venezuela. "There is an extremist elite that rules the United States".

He said they were particularly menacing given President Nicolas Maduro's renewed call this week for closer ties and request for a meeting with Trump at the U.N. General Assembly next month. It is an attack on the sovereignty of the Venezuelan people. "Mr. Donald Trump, here is my hand", Maduro said during the three-hour speech, in which he later accused "imperialists" of threatening his regime.

After several days of increasingly charged rhetoric with North Korea, President Trump turned his attention to another country - Venezuela.

After stifling all democratic opposition in his nation and essentially turning Venezuela into a communist dictatorship, President Nicolas Maduro responded to some tough talk from President Donald Trump by offering to set up a phone call and discuss matters.
