Venezuela’s President says he may skip the United Nations General Assembly in New York next week, because he’s worried he’ll be assassinated if he travels abroad.

He’s facing a furious backlash at home over the last foreign trip he made, when he stopped in Istanbul to dine on a sumptuous steak dinner with a celebrity chef. He’s been accused of gluttony and indifference, amid crippling food shortages in the country.
