Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that US military deployment in Venezuela is one of “many options” amid the embattled country’s uprising against President Nicolás Maduro.
“The President’s made clear no option is off the table,” the secretary said during his interview on CBS’s “Face The Nation” with Margaret Brennan.
“We’ve worked diligently to make sure that capability, a wide range of capabilities, are prepared to be executed,” Pompeo told Brennan.
