New U.S. sanc­tions: The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion hit Venezuela and Cuba with new eco­nomic sanc­tions last week, part of an ef­fort to pun­ish what na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser John Bolton called, along with Nicaragua, a “troika of tyranny.” A new ex­ec­u­tive or­der bans U.S. firms and in­di­vid­u­als from in­volve­ment in Venezuela’s gold sec­tor, a harsh blow to the coun­try’s tee­ter­ing econ­omy. And the State Depart­ment added more than two-dozen en­ti­ties owned by the Cuban mil­i­tary and in­tel­li­gence agen­cies to a list of busi­nesses that are off-lim­its for Amer­i­cans. An­nounc­ing the mea­sures in a speech at Mi­ami Dade Col­lege, Bolton vowed to de­feat a “tri­an­gle of ter­ror stretch­ing from Havana to Cara­cas to Managua.” He promised sanc­tions against Nicaragua “in the very near fu­ture.”
