The United States has renewed its threats to Venezuela to impose new sanctions in the nearby future. 

“Venezuela is sliding into dictatorship”, the US Vice President Mike Pence wrote on his Twitter account.

“The United States will not accept the rise of a dictator and there may be new sanctions against Venezuela soon,” Pence told the crowd at a press conference during his visit to Colombia. 

“We have many options for Venezuela, including a military intervention if necessary”, he told reporters in New Jersey. 

In a response, the Venezuelan defense minister Vladimir Padreno described  the threats of the Trump administration against Venezuela as a “mad and extreme.”

Pence has also made comments, regarding the violence in Charlotesville, saying the United States does not tolerate hatred and violence of the “extreme right.”

“We cannot tolerate the hatred and violence of the white supremacists, the neo-nazis and the Ku Klux Klan. These dangerous marginal groups have no place in the American public life” , Pence said.

The US Vice President has recently begun a tour to a number of Latin American countries, Argentina, Chile and Panama including.
