Trump Threatens "Highest-Level Sanctions" Against Cuba over Venezuela

Alex Brandon / AP

President Trump threatened Tuesday to impose a “full and complete embargo” and more economic sanctions on Cuba if that government does not end what Trump called deadly intervention in Venezuela, where soldiers and opposition forces clashed in the streets in what U.S. officials said may be a pivotal uprising, The Washington Post reports.

“If Cuban Troops and Militia do not immediately CEASE military and other operations for the purpose of causing death and destruction to the Constitution of Venezuela, a full and complete embargo, together with highest-level sanctions, will be placed on the island of Cuba. Hopefully, all Cuban soldiers will promptly and peacefully return to their island!” Trump wrote in a pair of tweets late Tuesday.

Trump’s warning appeared to refer to a return to the full U.S. embargo on Cuba that President Barack Obama partially lifted in a bid to improve ties. Trump has already reversed many elements of Obama’s attempted diplomatic opening.
