Trump: Military option against Venezuela “on the table”

As Venezuela, all-but burns as anti-Maduro political protests continue, President Donald Trump is receiving wide-ranging bipartisan support for his recognition of newly-elected Venezuelan Assembly Leader Juan Guaido as that country’s “legitimate” president.

Maduro doesn’t see it that way, and still proclaims that he is the true leader of Venezuela.

President Nicolas Maduro enjoys the support of the military and the hardliners in his regime, but Guaido’s election for the most part, speaks for the will of the Venezuelan people.

Rubio (pictured at an 2015 anti-Maduro press conference in Miami) says that the Trump administration “deserves lots of credit” for the anti-Maduro regime sentiment the “regional partnership” has expressed.

While Vice President Mike Pence hopes that Maduro will peacefully handover the reigns of his country, Maduro has told the US that he wants all U.S. diplomats to leave within 3 days, and threat the Trump administration has scoffed at.

President Trump stepped up his rhetoric after Maduro made his demand, saying that “all options are on the table” when dealing with Maduro, including military action.

The administration asserted that because American interests could be threatened, the use of military action was being considered.
