Trump to skip South America, will send Pence

'President Trump will not attend the 8th Summit of the Americas in Lima, Peru, nor will he travel to Bogota, Colombia, as he was originally scheduled, ' White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement on Tuesday.

Pence has already visited Colombia as Vice President after he met with Santos last August following Trump's comments that there could be USA military intervention in Venezuela.

The decision marks the first time a US president has not attended the summit.

On Monday, Trump said a decision about a United States response to a chemical weapons attack in Syria was imminent.

The Trump administration, backed by France and Britain, began making a circumstantial case that Syria and its Russian and Iranian partners bore direct responsibility for the deaths of over 50 people in the opposition-held town of Douma, outside Damascus.

White House officials said the decision to miss the summit was made Monday, adding that the raid of the office of Trump attorney Michael Cohen was not a factor in the decision.

I would be real surprised if they swapped both top titles, and I'm just not sure Shinsuke Nakamura can carry the top title yet. Basically all of you agree Undertaker will show up - either as The Deadman or The American Badass - and take down Cena.

The cancellation comes during an unusually chaotic period of Trump's presidency, including an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid Monday on the Manhattan office, home and hotel room of Michael Cohen, the president's longtime personal lawyer and fixer.

Since Trump took power in January 2017, Vidarte said, "the topic that has dominated ties with Latin America has been the search for measures that will benefit his country more". Trump values his European allies and has often said so.

Trump's cancellation of his trip to the summit could be a relief for some countries in the Latin American region. Maduro was disinvited from the gathering last month, an unusual diplomatic break among Latin American nations that US analysts consider a positive sign.

United States President Donald Trump has called off his planned trip this weekend to South America, announced the White House.

Pence has been among the most vocal Maduro critics, and he is now expected to criticize Maduro at the summit.

On that note, Vice-president Mike Pence will represent the United States at the eighth Summit of the Americas at President Trump's request, the report said. Chinese president Xi Jinping has made economic inroads in South America for years; the US may try to reverse those gains and shore up economic solidarity against China.
