The Trump administration has announced new sanctions and sanctions against Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua with a view to ending the rule of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and weakening the Communist regime of Cuba.

One of the measures will allow lawsuits against foreign companies operating on properties in Cuba seized by US citizens during the Cuban Revolution – a return of more than 20 years of American policy.

Announcement of the crash in Coral Gables, Fla., Wednesday, national security advisor John Bolton called Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua "the tyranny of the tyranny" and said that the new measures would "end the glamor of socialism and communism."

The measures come as the US pushes for Venezuela and the international community to recognize opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president.

"This is just the beginning," Bolton said. "As long as the people of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua stand for freedom, the United States will stand with them."

Earlier Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the United States would no longer suspend Helm's Title III -Burton Act.

This provision allows US citizens to file lawsuits in US courts against foreign companies "trading" with properties confiscated after the 1957 Revolution in Cuba. Former administrations had a long-standing policy of waiving the provision for six months at a time. But the Trump administration had signaled its intention to tighten the US trade embargo with Cuba earlier this year as it only renewed its 45-day cancellation.

The new policies announced Wednesday also include sanctions against Venezuela's central bank and a financial provider in Nicaragua that the administration calls a "slush fund" for President Daniel Ortega.

But Havana took the starting point for the measures that experts say will likely affect the country's stagnant economy.
