Donald Trump 'considered invading Venezuela', reports say

US president briefed not to mention the topic at dinner with leaders from four Latin American allies – but he did so anyway

 

Donald Trump considered invading Venezuela, a senior US administration official has said.

 

In a meeting last August to discuss sanctions on Venezuela in the Oval Office, Mr Trump asked why he could not just invade the country.

 

Months later, Mr Trump was briefed not to mention the topic at a private dinner with leaders from four Latin American allies, but the first thing the president said was “my staff told me not to say this” – stunning his advisers at the time.
