Ooopsie! On Venezuela Trump deviates from the Playbook!

"He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he’d like to see something positive happen," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Friday. "I feel the same way."

His remarks came just days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Russia of propping up the regime of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who is in the midst of a political showdown with opposition leader Juan Guaido. The Trump administration has pushed hard to oust Maduro in favor of Guaido, calling Guaido the legitimate leader of Venezuela.

Russia is a key Maduro ally, and the Kremlin has been sharply critical of the Trump administration's support for Guaido.

Yup. That and Pompeo claiming Putin's men had practically dragged Maduro off a plane, so ready the latter was to get his chops into exile! (NOT!)

I can only hope all this will cause a massive aneurysm in Bolton's angry brain...
