“We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary,” Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.

The president did not answer a question about whether American troops would lead a potential operation.

“We don’t talk about it. But a military operation, a military option, is certainly something we could pursue,” he responded.

“Venezuela rejects in the most categorical and convincing manner the unfriendly and hostile statements by US President Donald Trump… in which he threatens a military invasion against our homeland.  The reckless threats of President Donald Trump are designed to draw Latin America and the Caribbean into a conflict that will irrevocably violate stability, peace and security in our region”~Jorge Arreaza, the Venezuelan foreign minister

In response, Venezuela’s defense minister said that Trump’s threat of military intervention was “a crazy act.”

The Trump administration has issued sanctions against Maduro, whom it calls a “dictator,” and more than two dozen other former and current officials. The U.S. accuses Maduro’s regime of violating human rights and subverting democratic processes.

The international community has recently condemned Maduro’s moves to consolidate power. He has been accused of setting up a powerful constitutional assembly to push aside opposition.

Reporting for RT on the ground, Carlos Camacho has described the situation in Venezuela as it now having “two parliaments: one is dominated by the opposition, and another by Nicolas Maduro.” Camacho says the situation is exacerbated by the opposition’s ambiguous stance on the violent protests, which it does not directly endorse but doesn’t denounce either, calling it “people’s demonstrations.” As many as 150 people have reportedly been killed in the violence since late March.
