The Pentagon Just Shut Down Trump’s Threat On Venezuela

Donald Trump has been on a threatening frenzy this week, first he threaten North Korea while hinting a nuclear war, and on Friday he threatened Venezuela, saying he won’t “rule out a military option.”

“I’m not going to rule out a military option” for Venezuela, Trump explained in a short press conference in New Jersey. “Venezuela is not very far away.”

Trump’s threatening words were quickly put to rest as the Department of Defense issued a statement to CNN Pentagon Reporter Barbara Starr following the threat. But instead of blaming Trump for his careless threat, they blamed the accusation on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

“Any insinuations by the Maduro regime that we are planning an invasion are baseless,” the spokesperson told Starr.

Maduro made an announcement earlier Friday, prior to Trump’s threat, saying the he was ready and eager for diplomatic talks with Trump.
