Venezuela is “collapsing” — Trump warns

U.S. President Donald Trump warned Monday that Venezuela is “collapsing,” suggesting the United States may take additional steps to restore democracy

Trump told Latin American allies gathered on the fringes of the United Nations General Assembly that President Nicolas “Maduro defied his own people” and was guilty of “disastrous rule” that may necessitate further punitive measures.

“The Venezuelan people are starving. Their country is collapsing,” Trump said.
