Trump not ruling out military options in Venezuela

  • Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro addresses the all-powerful pro Maduro assembly in Caracas

"If the USA soils the homeland, the rifles would come to NY and take the White House", Maduro Guerra said according to reports from Venezuelan media.

In a Friday night message on social network Twitter, he said, "The diplomatic corps is summoned to the foreign ministry for tomorrow, when it will release a communiqué addressing the imperial threat to Venezuela".

VP Mike Pence will also express the support of the United States administration of President Donald Trump to the cooperation in security, entrepreneur relations, agriculture and development of infrastructures to the Colombian government, during his 48-hour visit.

More than 120 people have died in protest-linked incidents since April.

Bolivian President Evo Morales also condemned on Saturday the "armed interventionist eagerness by the U.S. against Venezuela", slamming the worldwide community for keeping silent. "Mr. Lopez and Mr. Ledezma are political prisoners being held illegally by the regime", Trump said in a statement earlier this month, referencing Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio Ledezma, two of Maduro's top political opponents. McMaster told ABC's "This Week".

"Military force must be the last option, not the first".

Calling Trump's words a "direct aggression" against peace and independence of Latin America and the Caribbean, Suarez warned that a US military attack against Venezuela could be hidden under the pretext of a "humanitarian intervention".

North Korea develops its nuclear programme "at an alarming rate"
Friday: The US president warns that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely". Donald Trump in particular has promised "fire and anger" at North Korea.


"I think they consider Pence more predictable and measured", she said. "Provocative statements by @realDonaldTrump on North Korea and Venezuela are reckless", said Rep. Ted Lieu.

The security arrangements scheduled to receive US Vice President Mike Pence in the Colombian Caribbean resort of Cartagena de Indias, will be as much deep as those for Heads of State and Government.

"The time has come for worldwide organizations and multilateral forums in the region and in the world to reaffirm the validity of the norms of global law and to curb the most aggressive action of the United States empire against the Venezuelan people in more than a hundred years".

Communist Party of Spain: We condemn the threat of war aggression of Donald Trump to Venezuela. Peru's government has expelled Venezuela's ambassador as regional pressure builds on President Nicolas Maduro's government for allegedly trampling on the constitutional order.

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.

The South American nation is also embroiled in an economic crisis that has led many to leave the country in search of easier access to food and medicine.
