US President Donald Trump said Tuesday while meeting with his Brazilian counterpart that he was looking into Brazil joining NATO or other alliances.

“We are going to look at that very, very strongly in terms of whether it’s NATO or it’s something having to do with the alliance. But we have a great alliance with Brazil, better than we have ever had before,” Trump said during his meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

Trump also added that he was supporting Brazil’s bid to join the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

“I am supporting their efforts to join [the OECD],” Trump told reporters as he began a meeting with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

On Venezuela

US President Donald Trump told reporters on Tuesday that he will discuss with Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro the possibility of military intervention in Venezuela.

“We haven’t even discussed it, we’re going to discuss it today,” Trump said when asked if he would like to see Brazil involved in any sort of military option in Venezuela.

The US president has reaffirmed that “all options” were being considered in his drive to bring down Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.

“All options are on the table,” he told reporters in the White House. “It’s a shame what’s happening in Venezuela — the debt and the destruction and the hunger.”

Brazil is heavily aligned with Trump on the Venezuela crisis, with Bolsonaro recognising opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s interim president and vowing to “do everything possible to re-establish order, democracy, and freedom there”. Earlier in February, Guaido visited Brazil seeking support in his fight against legitimately-elected President Nicolas Maduro.

Brazil has participated in the delivery of “humanitarian aid” to Venezuela by the US, allowing it to be stacked on the Brazilian-Venezuelan border.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
