BBCI: Venezuela crisis: Latin Americans condemn Trump over 'military response'

Trump: Nukes Are the Greatest Threat to the World, Not Climate Change

The South American trade bloc Mercosur is criticizing U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion of a possible "military option" to deal with the crisis in Venezuela. Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and they're dying.

"There is an extremist elite governing the United States and honestly I don't know what's happening, what is going to happen in the world", Padrino said. "But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue", he responded. The Venezuelan government continued its plans and shortly after the elections, Maduro was sanctioned.

Venezuela has come under fire for using excess force against demonstrators during four months of anti-government protests by citizens outraged over rampant inflation and shortages of food and medicine.

A statement from the #White House said on Friday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro requested a telephone conversation with President Trump but the White House turned it down and stated that Trump would only speak to the Venezuela's President when democracy was fully restored in the country.

Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said on Friday night that Trump's threat was an "act of craziness" and "extremism".

"To all Venezuelans, the message is to continue in this struggle", said a bearded Mr Muchacho, clad in a white T-shirt emblazoned with the Venezuelan flag and appearing before a plain white backdrop.

Violent demonstrations vigorously countered by security forces have killed almost 130 people since the beginning of April.


"Mr. Donald Trump, here is my hand", Maduro said, adding that he wants as strong a relationship with the U.S.as he has with Russian Federation, according to The Associated Press.

Mr. Trump made the comments in a tweet early Friday from a working vacation at his golf course in New Jersey.

Venezuelan officials said Caguaripano, who was discharged from the army in 2O14, had commanded around 20 uniformed men in the attack.

These two very different responses to the convening of the National Constituent assembly demonstrate the divisions and current rudderless nature of the opposition in Venezuela.

USA officials previewing the trip before Trump's remarks said Venezuela is expected to feature prominently in Pence's discussions with leaders.

Not even the frustration over Trump's decision to partially roll back Obama's opening to Cuba - a diplomatic thaw that was applauded across the region's political spectrum - or his constant talk of building a border wall to keep out immigrants got in the way of presenting a united front toward Maduro.
