    While eyebrows are being raised about President Donald Trump’s meetings with mega-donors to his inaugural committee, it seems another meeting is causing controversy.

    The Miami Herald reported Thursday that Trump held secret meetings at Mar-a-Lago with former presidents of Colombia, which, they explained, could cause “an ugly power struggle in Latin America.”

    Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is assumed to be urging Trump to approve a peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia when he meets with Trump in May. Former President Barack Obama had promised $450 million in aid to help end the ongoing armed conflict, but it’s unclear if Trump or Congress will support the promise.

    Trump met with former presidents, Álvaro Uribe and Andrés Pastrana, which was arranged by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who doesn’t support Obama’s efforts to end the conflict. Rubio’s wife is Colombian and he agrees with many who believe they shouldn’t negotiate with a militant group known for drug trafficking and kidnappings.

    1. Very strange how Trump uses his mansion in Florida for these type of meetings.

    As if no one is going to notice who is driving in to his compound to see him. I hope Rubio doesn’t have any influence in his decision.
