Trump Orders to Prevent Venezuelan Officials From Selling Off Public Assets
The official said all potential tools the United States could use against Maduro in order to resolve the current situation in Venezuela remain on the table and are being reviewed.
The National Electoral Council in Venezuela certified Maduro's re-election with 68 percent of the vote.
The election took place amid a financial crisis in Venezuela whose economy has been hit by falling oil prices. Venezuela also experienced mass protests last year, which initially were organized in response to the highest court's decision to significantly limit the parliament's legislative powers.
