Trump is a moron that no one within the US government takes seriously. The UA strategic interest in Venezuela is a desire to see a true democracy/capitalist society and to undermine China's efforts to turn Venezuela in to a colony.

And why does the US want to see a democratic/capitalist society in Venezuela?  It's not because the US is just nice.  I certainly would't ignore concerns about Chinese influence as you're saying, but over the last several decades we've seen the same song and dance by the US in the middle east and latin america and elsewhere around the world.  Capitalist democracies are less likely to nationalize natural resources and more likely to let US companies and investors have access to those markets and make money for America, for Americans, especially for the wealthy who fund & lobby & work in the government.

Oil is no longer a strategic concern.

I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
