Trump says he won’t ‘rule out a military option’ in Venezuela

President Donald Trump said he was not ruling out “a military option” Friday for the United States’ involvement in Venezuela’s ongoing government power struggle, which has led to widespread, and at times, violent demonstrations within the country.

“Venezuela is a mess,” said Trump, in an appearance before reporters with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley at his New Jersey golf club. “It is a very dangerous mess and a very sad situation.”

Asked about the possibilities for U.S. intervention in the country currently led by President Nicolas Maduro — whom the Trump administration has labeled a “dictator” — the president went out of his way to discuss utilizing the armed services.
