President Donald Trump said he would not rule out the use of military force in Venezuela in response to a growing crisis in the South American country led by Nicholas Maduro, according to news reports late Friday. Trump told reporters in Bedminster, N.J., that "We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary." Trump's remarks to reporters followed a meeting with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Trump also said he plans to talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping later in the evening concerning North Korea.
