Mnuchin: We are now able to target more sectors with new sanctions

The additional sanctions that we put on this week and the additional executive order that the president authorized gave us additional capabilities to target both primary and secondary sanctions in different sectors, including the metals industry, construction, and travel, among
     others.
     It is 70 percent, Maria. But let me just say, it's 70 percent of a very, very small number.
     And China is subject to sanctions, like everybody else.
     We actually sanctioned some of their shipping companies that were involved in the oil. And we will continue to pursue sanctions activities against China and anybody else around the world that continues to do business with
     them.
