'US President Donald Trump is turning up the pressure on Venezuela's sitting President Nicolas Maduro. Trump warned in a television interview that sending US troops to Venezuela is an option. Pressure is coming from Europe too. France and Austria have said again that they will endorse self-declared Interim President Juan Guaido if Maduro doesn't call elections. Other countries are expected to follow. With Russia and China supporting Maduro and both Russia and the US pulling out of the INF Treaty, could Venezuela become the next Cuba in a new Cold War fight for the survival of Chavismo?'
