Trump has promised to use the "full weight" of USA economic and diplomatic power to push for the restoration of Venezuela's democracy. Washington has refused to comply, but ordered its non-essential staff to leave the tumultuous country, citing security concerns.

Venezuela's military brass pledged unwavering support to Maduro, delivering vows of loyalty Thursday before rows of green-uniformed officers on state television.
