The President of the United States (US), Donald Trump, is secretly preparing for a war against the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, Venezuela's Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada, said on his Twitter account.

"Trump's war against Venezuela is in full swing even if its leaders deny it publicly. It is a clandestine multi-national operation, a crime on a large-scale that was planned in the U.S. capital," Moncada tweeted.
The Venezuelan diplomat, after posting the hashtag #ParemosLaGuerraDeTrumpContraVenezuela, published a series of tweets that revealed last Wednesday in Washington "a sinister meeting that will be marked in the opprobrious history of the U.S. wars in the world."
He stated that during this secret meeting on April 10, the U.S. administration discussed "how to launch a war against Venezuela."
Moncada explained that it was the American journalist Max Blumenthal, via the publication "The Grayzone", who revealed the meeting.
According to Moncada, the meeting was attended by some 40 figures, including Trump's advisers on Venezuela, U.S. officials, diplomats and military personnel.
Moncada revealed that among the diplomats who attended the meeting was the Ambassador of Colombia in Washington, Francisco Santos.
"What does the Ambassador of Colombia do in a meeting where the war against Venezuela is being promoted?" Moncada asked.
Moncada would conclude his tweets by saying, "the birds of prey do not recognize their participation in the criminal meeting in public. But his commitment to war is clear in the title of the invitation. The motive is to perpetrate crimes against humanity."
