Einem Bericht von AP zufolge (via Bpb-Newsletter) soll US-Präsident Trump letztes Jahr ernsthaft nach Optionen für einen US-Einmarsch in Venezuela gefragt haben: „As a meeting last August in the Oval Office to discuss sanctions on Venezuela was concluding, President Donald Trump turned to his top aides and asked an unsettling question: With a fast unraveling Venezuela threatening regional security, why can’t the U.S. just simply invade the troubled country? The suggestion stunned those present at the meeting, including U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and national security adviser H.R. McMaster, both of whom have since left the administration.” (jw)
