US President Donald Trump said he would consider meeting with Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

“I would maybe think about that. … Maduro would like to meet,” Trump claimed during an interview with Axios published Sunday when asked about a possible meeting.

Trump added that, “I’m never opposed to meetings — you know, rarely opposed to meetings.”

“I always say, you lose very little with meetings. But at this moment, I’ve turned them down,” he noted.

A former Trump administration official told the outlet that it was a “recurring concern” in 2017 and 2018 that Trump would meet with Maduro, who is not recognized as the president of the country by the Trump administration.

But Trump, John Bolton says, in his upcoming White House tell-all, “thought Guaido was ‘weak,’ as opposed to Maduro, who was ‘strong,’ ” according to the report.

Responding to the claims, Trump told Axios that Bolton is a “nutjob” and possibly the “dumbest human being on Earth,” for his support of the Iraq war.
