President Trump says USA is ready to intervene in Venezuela

President Trump says USA is ready to intervene in Venezuela

President Donald Trump surprised the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday when he remarked that the collapsing regime in Venezuela was not due to the poor implementation of socialism, but rather its successful implementation.

"The socialist dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro has inflicted bad misery and suffering on the good people of that country", Trump told the room.

U.S. President Donald Trump threatened new sanctions on Venezuela as his administration stepped up efforts to build an global alliance against President Nicolás Maduro.

But he did not repeat an earlier threat to consider military options to pressure Venezuela, a day after dining with the leaders of four Latin American countries who made clear they would not support such action.

In the months before the July election, violent protests erupted in the streets of Caracas, the country's capital, and the government's approval has fallen amid severe food and medicine shortages. During the meeting, which was attended by several leaders from around Latin America, Trump said they have a duty to collaborate in restoring the freedom of citizens suffering under President Nicolás Maduro's regime.

"What we all want is for Venezuela to become a democracy again and we are exerting all the pressure we can for that to happen".

However, Trump only said that the U.S.is "prepared to take further action" against Venezuela. "We are people of peace - peaceful people - and we want relations of mutual respect", Arreaza told reporters at the United Nations.

The Venezuelan government's statement criticized specifically the Colombian president's position.
