Poster Handle Pacifica
Post Content

It is Trump's words, not Putin's; it is what Trump said - whether he is reliable or not is a matter of opinion. Calling the source toilet paper and the like is the usual retort here when there is something that posters don't like. It is quoted in many sources. like USA Today:

"He is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela, other than he’d like to see something positive happen," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Friday. "I feel the same way."

But you still can't find me an official Russian readout for the quote. In other words: its bullshit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77614855

MSN is crap, but this is Trump saying what was quoted and more.

Trump said it; end of conversation.
 Quoting: NILAW

Yes, Trump certainly said that.

This is a write up about the call on kremlin.ru, the official Russian President website. The mention of Venezuela in red:

Telephone conversation with US President Donald Trump


The current state and prospects of bilateral relations were discussed with a focus on economic cooperation. The two presidents spoke in favour of developing mutually beneficial trade and investment relations. They affirmed their shared commitment to step up dialogue in various areas, including on issues of strategic stability.

Vladimir Putin informed Donald Trump of the key results of his April 25 meeting in Vladivostok with Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK Kim Jong-un, stressing that Pyongyang’s good-faith fulfilment of its commitments should be accompanied by reciprocal steps to ease the sanctions pressure on North Korea. Both parties noted the importance of consistent progress towards denuclearisation and achieving long-term normalisation on the Korean Peninsula.

The situation in Ukraine was touched on in the context of the recent presidential election. Vladimir Putin emphasised that the new leadership in Kiev should take real steps to implement the Minsk Agreements, which are critical to resolving the internal Ukrainian conflict.

While exchanging views on the situation around Venezuela, the President of Russia underscored that only the Venezuelans themselves have the right to determine the future of their country, whereas outside interference in the country’s internal affairs, and attempts to change the government in Caracas by force, undermine prospects for a political settlement of the crisis.

It was agreed to maintain contacts at various levels.

The two heads of state expressed satisfaction with the business-like and constructive nature of the conversation.
 Quoting: Pacifica

What is written above (its up to the Venezuelan to decide) is the same as Putin said when asked about Venezuela back in October 2018. He also says he that he totally opposes the use of any 'tools' to interfere there . . .
