President Donald Trump warned U.S. citizens against travelling to Venezuela
Washington. President Donald Trump on Wednesday warned U.S. citizens against travelling to Venezuela amid the political crisis there over control of the government, as the United States and other nations have recognised Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s rival Juan Guiado.
“Maduro willing to negotiate with opposition in Venezuela following U.S. sanctions and the cutting off of oil revenues. Guaido is being targeted by Venezuelan Supreme Court. Massive protest expected today. Americans should not travel to Venezuela until further notice,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Negotiations in Afghanistan are going well, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday, after U.S. officials earlier this week said there had been significant progress in talks to end 17 years of war in the country.
Talks “are proceeding well,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Likewise, U.S. Donald Trump on Wednesday pushed back against threat assessments offered to Congress by the nation’s top intelligence officials a day earlier and defended his assertions on North Korea and Islamic State.
In a series of early morning posts on Twitter, Trump said the Islamic State “will soon be destroyed,” and that there “decent chance of denuclearisation” with Pyongyang. On Tuesday, U.S. intelligence officials, in a Senate hearing, broke with Trump in their assessments of the threats posed by North Korea and other nations.
