Donald Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday morning that the Trump administration would "like to see as broad a coalition as we can put together to replace Maduro.” 

Tapper shot back asking, "Do you not see U.S. support for other dictators around the world undermines the credibility of your argument? To which Bolton replied, “No, I don’t think it does."

Russia will do all possible to prevent a U.S. military intervention in Venezuela, the TASS news agency quoted the speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament as saying on Sunday.

"We are very much concerned that the USA could carry out any provocations to shed blood, to find a cause and reasons for an intervention in Venezuela," Valentina Matvienko told Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez in Moscow.

"But we will do all in order not to allow this," said Matvienko, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin.
