"We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option, if necessary", Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club on Friday.
Bolivian president Evo Morales, soon after addressing a massive gathering of his country's armed forces in a national ceremony where he urged them to stand ready to protect regional sovereignty, used Twitter to warn against USA aggression in all its forms - be they economic through sanctions, obfuscated by operating through junior partners like Peru or of a direct military character.
Calling Trump the "boss of the empire", Arreaza said Trump's latest comments fit a pattern of aggression against Venezuelan sovereignty and constitute a violation of global law and the United Nations charter.
"Today Nichols Madurao requested a phone call with President Donald J Trump".

In comments that appeared to shock observers in both North and South America, Trump on Friday declined to rule out military intervention in the crisis-hit country.
The comment marked a serious escalation in rhetoric for the United States and threatened to undermine Washington's efforts to rally regional support to isolate Maduro. Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, who has led Latin America in taking on Maduro, recalled the country's ambassador to Caracas after the government-packed supreme court took steps to shut down congress, which is controlled by Venezuela's opposition.
The Venezuelan people, crushed under the weight of massive inflation and Maduro's oppressive regime, are struggling to provide even the most basic necessities for their families. In a statement before the constituent assembly elections, the US President warned the Venezuelan government that there would be sanctions if the elections happened.
President Trump says he is "not going to rule out" military action against Venezuela following President Nicolas Maduro's moves to consolidate power in recent weeks. "Solve your own problems, Donald Trump".
Hunter fells rogue elephant that killed 15 people in India
Attacks by wild elephants are common in India , and government reports say more than 300 people are killed each year by them. Roughly 200 forest officials and villagers assisted in the hunt, but only Khan was allowed to shoot the elephant.
The assembly's first action was to fire Venezuela's chief prosecutor, who had accused Mr Maduro of human rights abuses, confirming opposition fears that the assembly would purge the government of dissenting voices. But most Venezuelans tended to shrug the accusations off as the diversionary tactics of an unpopular leader.
The threat of military intervention would also seem to contradict the advice of Trump's top national security adviser.
"We want to express gratitude for all the expressions ofsolidarity and rejection of the use of force from governments around the world, including Latin America", said Arreaza, in a short speech on Saturday.
