Trump's Venezuela envoy vows sanctions on banks supporting Maduro

WASHINGTON, March 7 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s special representative for Venezuela pledged on Thursday that Washington would “expand the net” of sanctions on the South American nation, including more on banks supporting President Nicolas Maduro’s government.
