Well, That's the Optimistic Take

Sure, as Venezuela spirals further into non-democratic socialist chaos, this would be nice:

The Trump administration is monitoring Venezuelan instability, and believes there is a strong need to bring weeks of anti-government protests in the country's capital Caracas to a quick and peaceful conclusion.

I like to think I'm an optimist. But I'm not delusional. The quick and peaceful ship has sailed.

I think the best we can hope for is quick and Maduro hanging from a figurative lamppost.
