It's official: The Trump Administration applies a total embargo to Venezuela.
This measure marks a significant escalation in economic and financial aggressions against Venezuela, and represents the climax of the cycle of continued economic blockade than the United States since 2014.
The illegal incursions of spy planes of the Southern Command a couple of weeks ago were the first step of the set of pressures that now lead to the formalization of a total embargo in Venezuela via Executive Order.
The measure seeks to boost the process of dialogue that now in Barbados Chavismo and opposition under the auspices of Norway. Hours before the announcement, John Bolton says that no election could allow Nicolás Maduro to be in power.
Seen this way, I could deduce that the dialogue in Barbados was headed towards a consensus electoral process, which could have forced the Trump Administration to "bombard" the mediation deactivated by force one of the central points of discussion: the urgent lifting of the economic blockade.
Order The Executive Order occurs amid mass shootings in the United States and a considerable fall in Trump's victims in the middle of the election campaign. The measure would also serve as an escape valve to the internal chaos it faces.
In what corresponds to the electoral calculation, Trump seeks to definitively tie the vote of the Cuban-Venezuelan diaspora in the face of 2020, which requires the final exit of Maduro or a more frontal intervention in Venezuela to give the vote to the Republicans.
On an economic level, the scope of this embargo will be necessary. It sharpens the suffocation of all sources of income in the country, such as the export of gold and oil, and definitely seeks to drown out the routes of entry of the CLAP boxes, recently sanctioned by the Department of the Treasury.
Finally, sectors of radical anti-Chavism have not disappointed in what refers to their delivery: Juan Guaidó, María Corina Machado and others, have celebrated with joy these measures that admit the material life of millions of Venezuelans.
