President Donald Trump late Monday signed an executive order imposing a harsh, Cuba-style economic embargo on Venezuela as part of Washington’s broad push to force leader Nicolás Maduro out of power.

The executive order signed Monday freezes all assets of President Nicolás Maduro’s government and bars transactions with it without specific exemptions, the first such action against a Western government in decades. The only other countries subject to such sanctions are North Korea, Iran, Syria and Cuba, according to The Wall Street Journal.
