Mnuchin: We are now able to target more sectors with new sanctions
10:00, Monday, 13 January, 2020
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.
