President Trump is keeping an eye on  events in Venezuela and hinting at military intervention if necessary.   Following a meeting with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S.-UN  Ambassador Nikki Haley yesterday, Trump told reporters the U.S. has many  options to deal with the political crisis in the South American nation  and he's "not going to rule out a military option."  The U.S. sanctioned  Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro last month after he established a  constituent assembly run by his Socialist party loyalists.  Venezuela's  defense minister called Trump's talk of military action a crazy act of  supreme extremism.
