The Wall Street Journal: Trump administration adds new sanctions against Cuba, Venezuela

The Trump administration unveiled new sanctions against Cuba and Venezuela, part of an effort to target what White House national-security adviser John Bolton called a “troika of tyranny” that includes Nicaragua.

Bolton on Thursday praised Latin American leaders such as Brazil’s newly elected conservative firebrand, Jair Bolsonaro, as “positive signs for the future of the region,” but said the three targeted countries are being singled out for political oppression and human-rights violations.

In a speech at Miami Dade College, Bolton said the State Department has added more than two dozen entities owned or controlled by the Cuban military and intelligence services to a sanctions list putting any financial dealings with them off limits to Americans or U.S.
