US President Donald Trump on Tuesday urged Venezuela's military to desert President Nicolas Maduro, calling the embattled leftist leader a "Cuban puppet," in a joint appeal with Brazil.

"We call on members of the Venezuelan military to end their support for Maduro, who is really nothing more than a Cuban puppet," Trump told a joint news conference at the White House with Brazil's new right-wing president, Jair Bolsonaro.
