US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States has a full range of options available to help oust Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and didn’t rule out “ultimately” using military action on top of diplomatic, political and other pressure points.
“We’re preparing those for him so that when the situation arises, we’re not flat-footed,’’ Mr Pompeo said on ABC’s “This Week”, one of three scheduled appearances on Sunday morning political shows.
Mr Pompeo said on Sunday May 5th, that he can’t predict when Mr Maduro will be forced out of office – whether days, weeks or months.
But Nicolas Maduro can’t feel good about his situation because while he might be ruling for the moment, he can’t govern, Mr Pompeo said.
“There’s enormous poverty, enormous starvation, sick children that can’t get medicine,” the Secretary of State said. “This is not someone who can be part of Venezuela’s future.”
The US didn’t suffer an intelligence failure this week about the prospects of Venezuelan opposition Juan Guaido successfully leading an uprising to oust Maduro, Mr Pompeo said on national TV on ABC.
