President of the United States Donald Trump said on Saturday that he does not exclude the option of solving the Venezuelan problem, using the US armed forces.

“As for Venezuela, we have many options, including military, if it is required,” he told reporters at a golf club in New Jersey, where he is on vacation.

Trump did not give a clear comment on whether such a military option provides for the sending of military personnel directly to the territory of Venezuela.

“We will not discuss this [with the press], but a military operation is one of the possible steps,” the US president said, referring to the situation in Venezuela, where the confrontation between the authorities and the opposition is exacerbated.
