Maduro orders Venezuela military drill after Trump threat

Maduro orders Venezuela military drill after Trump threatVenezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro ordered the army to conduct a round of military drills later this month in response to US President Donald Trump’s threat of military action in the crisis-stricken nation. Maduro’s embattled government — facing a deepening economic emergency and swelling street protests — has seized on Trump’s apparent threat, which has been roundly condemned even by Latin American states opposed to the socialist president. Defense Minister General Vladimir Padrino called Trump’s comments “crazy,” saying it showed America had “dropped its mask” in terms of wanting to attack his country.
