Washington Will Impose Greater Sanctions On Venezuela


Wait for it: Washington will impose greater sanctions on the embattled government of Venezuela.  President Trump has already announced more names to Treasury’s individual sanctions list, including Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro. But more sanctions are right around the corner, especially if October elections look rigged.

In the war of words battle, Washington has been much more explosive of late.

On Aug. 14, vice president Mike Pence called Venezuela a “failed state” and that its downfall “threatened the security of the hemisphere and the people of the United States of America.” Pence was doing what all VEEPs do in this case, reiterate what the Commander-in-Chief said just days prior.
