Trump Just Announced He May Launch Military Action Against Venezuela

Trump is loving the news coverage he’s received after threatening to rain down nuclear holocaust on 25 million North Koreans. It gives him the opportunity to talk tough, and indulge in his strange fetishization of violence.

Now, like an addict looking for another high, he’s turned his warmongering gaze south. Trump just said that he is not ruling out a “military option” for Venezuela.


The stunning announcement seems to be – in typical Trump fashion – spur of the moment, ill-considered, and consequently likely to inflame tensions and further destabilize the situation.

Venezuela has been experiencing a brutal economic crisis, with the value of the Venezuelan Bolivar plummeting. President Nicolas Maduro is accused of engaging in mass voter fraud to steal the recent election, exacerbating an already tenuous situation. Mass protests and riots have gripped the country since.

The collapse of Venezuela is certainly a crisis the American president should be trying to tackle, but a military action not only makes zero sense, it would certainly make the situation much worse and reduce the country to a warzone. As usual, Trump has no idea what he is talking about.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
