Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday condemned Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro as “the worst of the worst of a tyrant,” asserting citizens there “have made it clear” the days of his regime “are numbered.”

In remarks on “Fox News Sunday,” Pompeo declared “the Venezuelan people are speaking loud and clearly.”

“Countries all around the world have seen the devastation that has been wrought in Venezuela by this Nicolas Maduro …stopping food, burning trucks with [humanitarian aid] — this is the worst of the worst of a tyrant,” he said. “I think the Venezuelan people are seeing that. We saw yesterday the military begin to see it as well.”

The American people have been most generous in providing a couple hundred tons of food, medicine, hygiene kits for the people, and then we will continue to put up the global coalition, to put force behind the voice of the Venezuelan people,” he added. 

Pressed on whether there will be military force used against Maduro, Pompeo said “every option is on the table. “

“We will do the things that need to be done to make sure that the Venezuelan people's voice, that democracy reigns and is a brighter future for the people of Venezuela,” he said.

The United States supports Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido.
