The United States will provide $2.5 million in food and medical aid to Venezuelans fleeing their economically-crippled country to neighboring Colombia and is poised to help other countries if the situation worsens, US officials said on Tuesday.

They also urged the Trump administration to give food and medicine to Venezuelans inside their own country.

The extra money, provided through the U.S. Agency for International Development, will provide emergency food and health assistance as the Colombian government struggles to provide necessary medical and social services, said Mark Green, USAID administrator. Colombian officials estimate about 600,000 were living in Colombia.

The Venezuelan president came out strongly yesterday against U.S. President Donald Trump's decree prohibiting "all transactions" with "any digital currency" issued by the Venezuelan government, alluding to the Petro.

Another U.S. official cited United Nations data showing more than 1.5 million Venezuelans have been displaced by the crisis.

The USAID announcement follows a visit by the former Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson to Colombia, where he met with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos to discuss Plan Colombia and the crisis in Venezuelan.

While the number of Venezuelans which have crossed into Brazil is believed to be in the tens of thousands rather than the hundreds of thousands who left for Colombia, Brazilian border states are feeling the strain.

About 300 residents protested in front of the building and burned the possessions of the Venezuelan migrants after police said the two suspects in the murder were Venezuelan nationals.
