U.S. President Donald Trump has imposed sanctions on assets of the Venezuelan government.

According to an executive order published yesterday, it stated that “All property and interests in property of the Government of Venezuela that are in the United States are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in,”.

The Trump Administration has been ramping up pressure on Caracas in a bid to oust President Nicolas Maduro from power.

The United States and most Latin American countries and Western democracies have called for Maduro to step down and have recognized Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s president.
