Nicolás Maduro, president of Venezuela, was added to the list July 31, 2017. The government of Donald Trump declared Maduro "a dictator", after elections for a National Constituent Assembly usurping the previously elected opposition controlled legislature. "As a result of today's actions, all of Nicolás Maduro's assets subject to the jurisdiction of the United States are frozen and the Americans are barred from making deals with him," the Treasury Department said.
