Trump said, "The president was telling me - and I knew - that Venezuela was a very very rich country, one of the richest countries in your neck of the woods", before discussing how Venezuela's oil riches have not led to widespread prosperity for Venezuelans, many of whom now lack sufficient food and critical medical supplies.

The rebel group agreed to turn over 30 percent of its arsenal of assault rifles, machine guns and explosives. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
Santos is a graduate of the University of Kansas and holds a master's degree from Harvard University.
