  • Donald Trump Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani

An anonymous administration official who allegedly spoke with the Associated Press said that, during a meeting last July between Trump, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and then-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, Trump suggested that a military intervention may be the best solution to promote regional security and end the suffering of the Venezuelan people.

"A military intervention from the United States empire will never be a solution for the problems in Venezuela", he added while said while point out the crippling impact USA led sanctions have had on the South American country.

In August past year, Trump publicly said he had "many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option".

The Development Bank of China has approved a loan of US$5 billion for Venezuela to increase petroleum development, Prensa Latina reports. "And by the way, I am not going to rule out a military option".

Trump's comments in 2017 came amid violent protests in Venezuela, where President Nicolas Maduro has increasingly relied on authoritarian tactics and committed "extensive human rights violations and abuses", according to a 2017 report from the United Nations Human Rights Office.

His administration levied new sanctions on dozens of Venezuelan officials, including Maduro, in May.

Trump, reportedly, called for a surprise meeting with his top aides and advisors a day before the declaration and asked them why couldn't the US intervene militarily against the Bolivarian government, arguing that Venezuela represented a threat to the region.

"You can not lower you guard for even a second, because we will defend the greatest right our homeland has had in all of its history", Maduro said at a military ceremony, "which is to live in peace".

He then went around the table to ask the leaders whether they were certain they didn't want the U.S.to invade Venezuela, to which each leader said clearly that they were, the AP reported.
