The son of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has threatened to take over the White House with rifles.
Nicolás Maduro Guerra made the comment on Saturday following President Donald Trump's statement that he would not rule out a U.S. military option in the South American country, CNN reports.
"Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering, and they are dying. We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary," Trump told reporters in New Jersey.
Since April, more than 120 people have died in anti-government protests that have turned violent as Venezuela's socialist economy has collapsed. There are growing fears that Maduro's leadership has become increasingly authoritarian.
