President Trump Says He Won't 'Rule Out' Military Option In Venezuela

President Trump Says He Won't 'Rule Out' Military Option In Venezuela

"We have many options for Venezuela including a possible military option if necessary", Trump told reporters.

"Today Nichols Madurao requested a phone call with President Donald J Trump".

Bolivian president Evo Morales, soon after addressing a massive gathering of his country's armed forces in a national ceremony where he urged them to stand ready to protect regional sovereignty, used Twitter to warn against USA aggression in all its forms - be they economic through sanctions, obfuscated by operating through junior partners like Peru or of a direct military character.

The reaction from Washington's staunchest ally in South America comes a day before U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence arrives in Colombia to begin a four-nation tour of the region.

Trump did not specify what type of options he had in mind.

Inflation has risen 1.7 percent over the past 12 months, suggesting that inflation pressures remain well under control. Shares of Kohl's were down 8.4%, while Macy's fell 4% after the department store operators reported a fall in sales.

General Vladimir Padrino, Venezuela's defense minister, dismissed the threat as "an act of craziness, an act of supreme extremism".

The antipathy towards the U.S. is the result of generations of meddling in Latin America and installing leaders.

The statement added that since the start of his administration, Trump had asked that Maduro respect Venezuela's constitution. Mexico and Colombia joined in with statements of their own.

Venezuela's foreign minister said Mr Trump's words had been hostile and disrespectful and risked destablising Latin America.

The remarks come amid increasing concern about Venezuela and increasing unrest there following a vote that installed a new legislature beholden to Maduro.

Peru expelled Venezuela's ambassador in Lima on Friday, but that did not stop it from criticizing Trump's threat.

Maduro has reached out to Trump on more than one occasion, but his unwillingness to return to a more democratic government in Venezuela is likely to prevent that from happening.

Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has urged Mr Maduro to resign and called him a dictator.

The new legislative superbody, which made waves last weekend by firing a dissident chief prosecutor, took new action on Saturday on the country's election timetable. The attack was condemned by FANB leadership and the Bolivarian government as terroristic in nature, and the captured combatants admitted to having been contacted by figures from the rightwing opposition in collusion with foreign governments, according to a communique issued by the FANB following the incident. Almost 130 people have been killed in clashes between protesters and security forces.

The ruling Socialist Party has for years accused the United States of plotting an invasion as a way of controlling its oil reserves, the world's largest, through a military intervention similar to the Iraq war.
