President Donald Trump on Wednesday called on Russia to “get out” of Venezuela following recent reports of Russian planes arriving in the country.

During an Oval Office meeting with Fabiana Rosales, the wife of Juan Guaido, the president of the country’s National Assembly, who the Trump administration recognizes as Venezuela’s acting president, Trump was asked whether Russia’s involvement complicates the situation in Venezuela.

“Russia has to get out. What’s your next question?” Trump said.

Trump was also asked whether he has communicated that Russia should leave of Venezuela through national security adviser John Bolton or through the United Nations.

“They know very well,” Trump said.

If Russia doesn’t leave Venezuela, Trump said: “We’ll see. We’ll see. All options are open … all options are open.”
