Pentagon: We've received no new orders on Venezuela after Trump remarks

Source: The Hill

The Department of Defense is pushing back on President Trump’s assertion that he is refusing to rule out a U.S. military intervention in Venezuela.

“The Pentagon has not received any orders with regards to Venezuela," Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said, according to CNN. "The military conducts contingency planning for a variety of situations. If called upon, we are prepared to support ... government efforts to protect our national interests and safeguard US citizens.”

“Any insinuations by the Maduro regime that we are planning an invasion are baseless and are designed to distract from his continued efforts to undermine the democratic process and institutions in Venezuela."

So President Buffoon can just keep pretending like he's really something.

5. "Any insinuations that we are planning an invasion are based purely on Trump's public remarks ...

... which were designed to distract from his continued efforts to undermine the democratic process and institutions in the USA. How dare they take our president at his word!"
