WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump said Friday that he wouldn't rule out military action against Venezuela in response to the country's descent into political chaos following President Nicolas Maduro's power grab.
Speaking to reporters at his Bedminster, New Jersey, golf club, Trump bemoaned the country's growing humanitarian crisis and declared that all options remain on the table _ including a potential military intervention.
"We have many options for Venezuela and by the way, I'm not going to rule out a military option,'' Trump volunteered, adding, "A military operation and military option is certainly something that we could pursue.''
