Embattled Venezuela leader comes to United Nations summit

Trump All options on table for Venezuela

Wednesday morning, even as Trump said he would meet with "anybody, anytime I can [to] save lives, help people", he reiterated that "all options are on the table, every one".

Trump was responding to comments made by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro saying he was ready for a face-to-face meeting with Trump after being hit with additional sanctions that target his wife and others in his inner circle.

His comments came on the heels of a Tuesday speech at the U.N. General Assembly in whichTrump once again addressed the current situation in Venezuela. I bring with me the People's voice; I come here with lot of the Homeland's passion to stand for truth. We have many Venezuelans living in the United States, many of them live in the Doral area of Miami.

Trump said in a Tuesday speech at the United Nations that the USA has begun an "economic pressure" campaign against Iran over its nuclear ambitions and behaviour in the region. That has fuelled an exodus of Venezuelans to nearby Latin American countries, where borders are now overwhelmed by Venezuelan migrants. Would Maduro meet with President Trump, and somehow defuse rising tensions with the United States in a manner similar to North Korea's Kim Jung Un?

The report, which was released at the end of May, concluded that there are reasonable grounds to presume that crimes against humanity, as defined in article 7 of the Rome Statute, may have been committed in Venezuela. "The people are suffering tremendously in Venezuela".

Hurney added that while he was on a trip during Reid's signing , "the sense I get is that he's very excited to play football". I say during because it's insane that the narrative changed to we were protesting the anthem and that wasn't the case.

According to figures from UNHCR, more than 2.3 million Venezuelans have left the country in recent years, 1.6 of which have done so since 2015.

On Tuesday, Trump suggested that Maduro could be toppled by his own military as the U.S stepped up financial pressure by slapping the socialist president's inner circle with fresh sanctions.

"Today we're stronger than ever", a buoyant Maduro said in a video broadcast from the presidential jet as he and first lady Cilia Flores, who was just hit by USA sanctions, arrived from Caracas. And Maduro sounded a defiant tone Wednesday night, complaining that Washington was attacking his country through sanctions and other means and strong-arming other countries into going along in a "fierce diplomatic offensive". Ninety percent of the displaced have stayed in neighboring countries, and now, some 5,000 Venezuelans leave their country every day.

The surprise visit came after Maduro had earlier threatened to skip the global gathering, citing fears for his personal safety as his once-wealthy Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) nation spirals into a brutal crisis and worldwide pressure mounts for the socialist leader to step down. Before he left for the UNGA in NY, he said he hoped the "miracle" meeting would happen. He called for the United States to offer the expertise of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and top scientists to determine who was behind the attack. "Perhaps since [Hugo] Chávez named him his successor, no one had helped Maduro as much as Trump and this nonsense he said today", Human Rights Watch Americas Director José Miguel Vivanco told The Guardian.
