Donald Trump threatens a blockade or quarantine for socialist Venezuela – USA TODAY


WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump said Thursday that he is considering a blockade of Venezuela, a country that has vexed his administration even as the president has sought to use its socialism as a 2020 campaign theme.

Trump made the remarks as departed the White House for a campaign rally in Cincinnati. He did not elaborate or provide details on when he might decide. 

Asked if he was considering a blockade or a quarantine on Venezuela, the president replied, “Yes, I am.”
