First We Kill All the Venezuelans ...

We read that Trump was eager to invade Venezuela. While this would likely have gratified Fernando, I doubt that Venezuelans would have appreciated it much - there is nothing quite like a foreign invasion to unify a people. Doubtless the conflict would have attracted every leftist on the continent, killed thousands or hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans, and gotten a lot of US embassies burned, but installing a right-wing pro-US government might have been a lot tougher.

On the plus side, it probably would have gotten Trump impeached.
