The Trump government imposes economic sanctions on the son of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to overthrow the socialist regime of the South American country.

Nicolás Maduro Guerra heads the Special Inspectorate Corps of the Presidency and is a member of the pro-government National Constituent Assembly.

A senior government official told reporters on Friday that the sanctions against Maduro Guerra are part of ongoing efforts to eradicate instances of corruption throughout the Caracas government. The officials said the government would attack these institutions and put their "corrupt finances" under pressure.

"The point we want to address is that Maduro's corruption is so endemic throughout the region and in all of Venezuela's institutions, largely with the exception of the National Assembly, that by and large we can confine ourselves to all instances of corruption and smother some of these corrupt finances. "

Finance Minister Steven Mnuchin said Maduro relied on his son" Nicolasito "and others," to strangle the economy and oppress the people of Venezuela. " He pointed to the efforts of the National Constituent Assembly to rewrite the Venezuelan constitution and dissolve state institutions.
