Trump threatens to impose blockade, quarantine on Venezuela

US President Donald Trump has threatened to impose a quarantine or blockade against Venezuela, as part of Washington’s latest efforts to pressure legitimately-elected President Nicolas Maduro to step down.

Trump made the comment as he departed the White House for a campaign rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday.

Asked by reporters whether he was considering a blockade or quarantine on the Latin American country, Trump said, “Yes, I am.”

The US president did not elaborate or provide details on when or how such a blockade could be imposed.

Moreover, the administration in Washington said on Friday that it would bar two Venezuelan officials from traveling to the United States over accusations of human rights violations.
