Daily Mail: Russia needs to get out of Venezuela: Trump tells Putin to pull his troops out of strife-torn country as he holds surprise Oval Office meeting with the 26-year-old journalist wife of the U.S.-recognized president

Trump dropped into a meeting with Fabiana Rosales, the wife of Venezuelan opposition leader and acting president Juan Guiado, to assert U.S. support for her husband's bid to restore democracy.
