Shootings prompt other countries to warn about travel to US

CARACAS, Venezuela — The latest mass shootings in the United States have triggered three countries to warn their citizens about the risks of traveling there.

It's a sharp reversal from when America took a leading role in calling out the world's most dangerous places. Venezuela, Uruguay and Japan issued warnings following the deaths of 31 people over the weekend in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.

At least one of the warnings was laced with a dose of political payback.

Without directly naming President Donald Trump, the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro blamed the surge in violence on speeches from Washington that featured racial discrimination and "hatred against immigrants." Maduro is presiding over the worst economic crisis in Venezuelan history amid a political battle with the White House.
