What occurred there, as local and state officials have said, is in no way a reflection of the good and decent people of Charlottesville or of America.

Pence and second lady Karen Pence were scheduled to meet with South American leaders from August 13-18. He said he has been praying for her.

"Our deepest wish is that soon (Venezuela) will attain peace and that not one more drop of blood is spilt", he said in the message.

Last week Pres. Trump said that a military option would be on the table for dealing with Venezuela.

"The President made clear by others of certain militant perspectives are also unacceptable in our political debate and discourse", Pence said, going on to criticize the media for focusing on Trump's words rather than focusing on the suspected killer, James Fields. Trump asked. "Do they have any semblance of guilt?"

There was also an update on the progress implementing the peace deals with the rebel group of FARC and the current trade and economic deals between the US and Colombia.

"Our narco neighbor and their narco client threaten Venezuela while forging their narco alliance", tweeted Ernesto Villegas, a member of Maduro's cabinet.

From Columbia, Pence described Venezuela as collapsing into a dictatorship under President Nicolas Maduro.

Still, Pence stressed the USA would much prefer what he called a "peaceable" solution to the growing political and humanitarian crisis.

"Our administration has been marshalling the support of nations around the world, and as the president acknowledged this morning, we are beginning to see progress in dealing with North Korea's provocations", he said.

This time it was Macri that warned the U.S. against military action saying "the way to go is not the use of force".

More than 120 people have been killed since anti-government protests began in April, driven by outrage over Venezuela's economic crisis and Maduro's creation of a legislative superbody that critics say is dictatorial.

He said Mr. Trump's call for unity on Saturday "was from the heart".

Before flying back to Washington, however, Pence is still scheduled to travel to Panama, where he will meet with the country's president and tour the newly enlarged Panama canal. "I'll never say so because they're not, because they've proven themselves not".

The Trump administration has been putting pressure on Colombia to curb the flow of drugs into the United States, and Colombia has stepping up its forced eradication program and increased seizures of cocaine.
