US diplomat arrives for expected rebuke from Venezuela

The top U.S. diplomat in Venezuela has arrived to hear what is likely to be a stinging rebuke to President Donald Trump’s talk of a “military option” to resolve the country’s political crisis.

A straight-faced Lee McClenny walked into the colonial government building known as the Yellow House in Caracas on Saturday morning along with other foreign diplomats for a meeting with Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza. He did not make any comments.

Following the meeting Arreaza is expected to deliver a government statement responding to Trump’s remarks, which have been panned by government allies as a dramatic escalation of the country’s political conflict.

The United States and Venezuela have not exchanged ambassadors since 2010.
