Jamaica: Trump To Meet Holness, Four Other Regional Leaders Friday Over Venezuela, Trade, Energy

The White House says President Donald Trump will meet with Prime Minister Andrew Holness and the leaders of four other Caribbean countries on Friday in an effort to strengthen cooperation on security and trade issues.

The meeting at Mar-a-Lago, the president’s Florida resort, will also feature the leaders of The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Saint Lucia.

In January, Jamaica, St Lucia, Haiti and The Bahamas were among CARICOM countries that controversially voted in favour of a US-backed resolution at the Organization of American States not to recognise the legitimacy of the current term of Venezuelan president, Nicolas Maduro.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says Trump will use Friday’s meeting to thank the leaders for their support for peace and democracy in Venezuela.

She says Trump will also discuss potential opportunities for energy investment.
