  • Latin America closes ranks after Trump threatens to use military in Venezuela

"Venezuela is a mess, it is very risky mess, and a very sad situation", Trump said during remarks to reporters at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Friday.

Venezuela's Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino branded Trump's threat as "a insane act", on Friday.

On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump threatened #Venezuela with #Military Intervention, escalating U.S. response to the crisis now going on in the country, a move Caracas described as "craziness".

The remarks came shortly after Maduro forcefully warned the US president that Venezuela "will never give in". The statement said: "Trump will gladly speak with the leader of Venezuela as soon as democracy is restored in that country". You know we're all over the world, and we have troops all over the world, some that are very, very far away.

In a unusual turn of events, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said Thursday that he wants a meeting with President Donald Trump. "We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option".

"We have many options for Venezuela and by the way, I'm not going to rule out a military option", Trump said.

Senator Ben Sasse criticized Trump on Friday night for the president's remarks made earlier in the day in New Jersey.

The US administration has been increasing pressure on Maduro in recent weeks, but especially since the election of the Constituent Assembly, imposing more individual sanctions on government officials, who have included the Venezuelan president himself.

"If he's so interested in Venezuela, here I am", the socialist president said.

The sanctions will freeze U.S. assets of the officials targeted, ban them from travel to the United States, and prohibit Americans from doing business with them.

Of course, unlike North Korea, which has been test firing ballistic missiles, Venezuela in no way poses a threat to the United States.

Some experts say that Trump's aggressive comments could work in Maduro's favor, helping the leader to boost his standing as Venezuela's defender.

The Pentagon reportedly hasn't yet received any military orders from the Trump administration on Venezuela.

Several Venezuelans also dismissed Trump's words as "imperial interference". Maduro a "personal conversation" with his counterpart, by phone or in person at the general assembly of the united nations in September in NY.
