Trump discusses Venezuela with Colombia's Ivan Duque at White House: 'All options' avail

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump greeted Colombian President Iván Duque and his wife at the White House on Wednesday, kicking off a visit that gives both leaders an opportunity to confront the crisis in Venezuela and the alarming rate of cocaine production.

Mr. Trump said Venezuela, where protesters are urging socialist President Nicolas Maduro to step down, will be the main topic of the day.

The U.S. has recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as it waits to see if Mr. Maduro will cede power.

Asked if Mr. Trump will consider using military might, he said he will “look at all options.”

“I never talk about that,” ” he said.
