President Donald Trump loses interest in Venezuela after an attempt to remove President Nicolás Maduro failed and he remains in power, Washington Post officials said.
In April, a US-backed offer by the Venezuelan opposition failed to remove Maduro When senior Venezuelan government and military officials rejected the promise of a pageant and instead sided with the president.
According to US Post officials, Trump had viewed the prospect of a US-backed overthrow of Maduro as a "simple gain," at a time when other foreign policy initiatives had stalled.
A former government official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the publication said that Trump has always regarded Venezuela as a "low-hanging fruit" where he could "win and win as an important foreign policy victory".
"Five or six months later … it does not come together," said the official.
Current and past officials told the Post that Trump "chewed" National Security Advisor John Bolton and Latin America Director, Mauricio Claver-Carone because it was "played by both the US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó and Maduro regime figures who claimed to have toppled Maduro.
