CAIRO – 22 May 2018: U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday called on the Venezuelan government to "hold free and fair elections" after President Nicolas Maduro was re-elected in a vote widely condemned overseas.
"We call for the Maduro regime to restore democracy, hold free and fair elections, release all political prisoners immediately and unconditionally, and end the repression and economic deprivation of the Venezuelan people," Trump said in a statement.
Earlier, Trump signed an executive order putting in place new economic sanctions aimed at preventing U.S. citizens from being involved in the sale of Venezuela's accounts receivables related to oil and other assets.
