The U.S. Treasury Secretary Seven Mnuchin said Trump's order was focused on new securities by making it illegal for U.S. financial institutions to trade new bonds with the Venezuelan government.
The new sanctions would also put more sway on the view that Venezuela is under military threat by President Trump.
Venezuelan troops taught civilians how to shoot rifles, fire missiles and engage in hand-to-hand combat during drills held Saturday in defiance of United States sanctions and President Donald Trump's threat of military action.
The opposition's statement comes fresh off the heels of the latest round of economic sanctions imposed on Venezuela by the US government.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro vowed Friday to prosecute for treason opponents he accused of being behind sweeping US financial sanctions that will strain relations between the countries and make it harder for the socialist leader to raise badly needed cash.
Communication Minister Ernesto Villegas called on Venezuelans to be "understanding" in the face of the sanctions, which he said amount to a "declaration of economic war". The new measures ban trades of Venezuelan debt and prevent the country's state-run oil company, PDVSA from selling new bonds to US citizens or financial groups. In remarks earlier this month, President Donald Trump would not rule out a "military option" for Venezuela.
The center right-led opposition and global powers including the United States say he is turning Venezuela into a dictatorship.
"You've got to be a big traitor to your country to ask for sanctions against Venezuela", Maduro said in a televised appearance. But even with this being the case, the U.S.is still dealing with oil exports from the country.
But Trump's rhetoric might have worked in Maduro's favor.
Venezuela has been wracked by months of political crisis. Later, Washington's top officials rejected this threat.
Maduro pushed for a controversial vote to elect a "Constituent Assembly" with the power to rewrite the constitution as well as pass laws.
That could choke off access to NY debt markets and substantially raise the likelihood of Venezuela being forced into default. As well, they are not allowed to made new transactions with the Venezuelan oil company, PDVSA, as the administration deems that such businesses fuel Nicolas Maduro'sdictatorship.
The new sanctions also bolster regional efforts - expressed in the Lima Declaration of August 8 - which refused to recognize Maduro's hand-picked "Constituent Assembly" and any laws it adopts.
