The U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Venezuela’s state-owned gold-mining company and the company’s president on Tuesday, and President Trump later said the U.S. could be “a lot tougher” on the government of President Nicolás Maduro.

The U.S. Treasury on Tuesday blacklisted CVG Compania General de Mineria de Venezuela CA, or Minerven, the Venezuelan state-run ferrous metals mining company, and the company’s president, Adrian Antonio Perdomo Mata, freezing any assets they have within U.S. territories and prohibiting any dealings with them.
