 Venezuela defense chief calls Trump threat of intervention 'crazy'

US President Donald Trump (R) speaks to the press with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (L) on August 11, 2017, at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Trump said Friday that he was considering options involving the US military as a response to the escalating political crisis in Venezuela.

U.S. President Donald Trump's threat of military intervention in Venezuela was "an act of craziness," the South American country's Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino told state television on Friday.

Venezuela's foreign ministry was expected to issue a formal response to Trump's threat by way of a statement to be issued later on Friday. (Reporting by Hugh Bronstein; Editing by Sandra Maler)
