Donald Trump intends to closely monitor the response, possibly military that is in the Asian country.

With this surprise cancellation, Donald Trump demonstrates the lack of interest that the region has for him, both from the campaign of aspiration to the presidency as demonstrated since he took office in January 2017. The lack of interest is demonstrated as in There are also delicate circumstances in the region, such as the militarization of the southern border with Mexico, the political, economic and humanitarian crisis that Venezuela is going through, and the corruption scandals by the multinational Odebrecht that are spreading to several Latin American governments and that have already charged the head of the now ex-president of Peru Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.

The trip of Donald Trump was speculated under immense tension due to the constant criticisms that the US president makes through their social networks and by official communications, where the main criticisms are towards migration, trade and the fight against narcotics that differs from what is proposed by the countries of the subcontinent. This trip implied the first visit of the president to the region, despite the fact that two of his closest collaborators had already made a visit: Vice President Mike Pence, who also, on behalf of the president, returns to Peru to replace Trump, and now Former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, who in recent months toured the region to discuss issues of mutual interest.

With the absence of Donald Trump and his possible support at the Summit of Lima, the issue of Venezuela can not be treated with the same forcefulness, since last October Donald Trump requested in the framework of the celebration of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York, United States, a dinner with the presidents of Colombia, Peru and Mexico to discuss this dilemma.

The Summit of the Americas is considered as one of the most important diplomatic events in the continent in terms of representation because it is mainly the heads of state that meet, in addition, the issues concerning the entire region are discussed and a solution to these is sought. . This mechanism was promoted by the United States, when Bill Clinton occupied the chair in the White House. His first meeting took place in Miami in 1994.
