The president of Venezuela is accusing the White House of trying to assassinate him. Nicolás Maduro did not provide any evidence in a televised broadcast Thursday night but claimed the White House asked the government in neighboring Colombia to kill him. A White House spokesperson said U.S. goals in Venezuela remain the same, for a peaceful return to democracy. President Trump has been highlighting the difficulties in Venezuela in his campaign speeches. Nearly 2,000,000 of its citizens have fled the oil-rich nation because of food and medicine shortages, hyperinflation and violent crimes. Maduro reassured his supporters that the U.S. assassins will not touch a single hair on his head.
