The Trump administration is considering adding Venezuela to its list of countries sponsoring terrorism in the latest pressure increase on Caracas, Reuters reports, citing a person familiar with the discussions.

Venezuela would join other nations now on the list, including Iran, North Korea, and Syria.

Venezuela has been hit with multiple rounds of sanctions since Trump took office, and there are concerns about the further effects of designation as a terrorism sponsor on the nation's already-decimated economy.

The administration will have a hard time finding proof to tie the Venezuelan government to terrorism, according to another anonymous source, this one a USA official.

The Trump administration is reportedly considering naming Venezuela a state sponsor of terror.

What Happened: Colombian President Ivan Duque has said his government will cut all diplomatic ties with Venezuela in January 2019, MercoPress reported November 20. The State Department has shopped the move around to various agencies for feedback, including the Department of Health and Human Services, and the US Agency for International Development. The foreign Ministry did not comment on these data.

Despite the fact that no evidence of the involvement of Caracas to the worldwide terrorist activities of Washington has not provided the White House plans to block this Latin American country "in its boundary limits".

"We believe his presidency to be illegitimate", the official said, reiterating Washington's rejection of the outcome of Venezuela's elections earlier this year. "The sanctions are having an effect", the official said.
