US Promises More Sanctions After Venezuela's Presidential Election
On Sunday, May 20, the South American country of Venezuela will go ahead with a controversial presidential election that some say will give President Nicolas Maduro only a thin veneer of legitimacy. The expected outcome, re-election of a leader accused of being undemocratic and authoritarian, has been rejected by several Latin American countries and Europe. The U.S. has joined those voices calling the election flawed and its likely outcome "illegitimate." VOA's Cristina Caicedo Smit reports.
