Trump says he is considering a blockade or quarantine on Venezuela

WASHINGTON, Aug 1 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he is considering a quarantine or blockade of Venezuela, as the United States steps up pressure on President Nicolas Maduro to relinquish power.

Asked by a reporter whether he was considering such a measure given the amount of involvement by China and Iran in Venezuela, Trump said: “Yes, I am.” (Reporting by Alexandra Alper; writing by Eric Beech; Editing by Mohammad Zargham)
