Trump welcomes Colombia's president to the White House

Kenny Thornton | 19 May, 2017, 06:22

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos will meet with President Donald Trump on Thursday, visiting a White House hamstrung by a chaotic week, just one day before the Mr. Trump embarks on his first foreign trip overseas.

And earlier in the day, during a private lunch of television anchors at the White House, Trump said he believes the decision to appoint a special counsel "hurts our country terribly" and called it "a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election".

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.

"Just as we should be very anxious from now on, the judges must also know that they made the the peace process much more hard", Barreras continued. He tweeted at the president after the meeting, thanking him for a "cordial and very frank conversation" about the problems of Colombia and the region.

"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly", he said on Wednesday to the graduating class of the United States Coast Guard Academy.

Santos has been among the critics of Trump's proposed wall, though he avoided outwardly criticizing the plan during their joint remarks. Just ask Israel. They work.

After Santos' answer, Trump commented on the issue.

The leader of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, Rodrigo LondoƱo, also known as Timoleon Jimenez or Timochenko, announced on his Twitter account that in response to the sudden decision to end the fast track process, FARC members in "all the regions and points of transition and normalization enter into permanent assembly". 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.
