 WASHINGTON - The Trump administration will take further action against "bad actors" in Venezuela if there are no changes in the country, a senior US government official said on Thursday.

He declined to provide specifics on a conference call with journalists about new sanctions announced on Venezuelans. "The point here is that President Trump has made it clear that the United States will not tolerate the 'bad actors' that exist in Venezuela under President (Nicolas) Maduro," the official said.

"More will come until they change their ways," he said.
